Here's what I did: I took time off from my Day Job. Shocking, I know. Oh, I've had some time off here and there in the last few years, but every single time off time I took in the last few years has involved travel, either by car or by air. I love traveling by car (Road Trip!) and I hate traveling by air (Squeezed Trip!)
- I went out with a friend to visit her elderly relatives. Real exciting, hmm? But you know, our visit made their day. I cut some flowers from my garden to take with me, and they were so happy to see us (and the flowers). It's nice when something simple like a visit can totally brighten up a day. My friend and I did a little shopping afterward and I scored a marvelous wristlet. It says:
Become a possibilitarian.
Find Beauty in the small.
- I did a bit of shopping on my own and scored 2 great pairs of shoes (they were on sale and I have one of this brand which I adore, so 2 new pairs made perfect sense to me).
- Went to some movies (Despicable Me ♥, After Earth so-so) then out to dinner.
- Had a manicure
- Did some gardening
- Read a book (actually, re-read an old favorite)
As far as I'm concerned, this was one frivolous, free fling -- I'm already plotting another one, maybe in November around Thanksgiving. There's something to be said for free time!
