Happy Holiday Weekend!

My mission for this three day weekend: relaxation and self indulgence. Knitting, movies, happy hour with a friend, sit by the pool with a book and a cold beverage, play in the pool with Miss D. I'll do my nails tonight, and get my hair cut tomorrow. I am NOT going to think about work at all for three days. I need this weekend. My brain needs a break.

I'm actually reading books for pleasure lately, vs. listening to audiobooks while doing something else. This sitting down to read thing could catch on. I've found a new-to-me series: In the Bleak Midwinter: A Clare Fergusson and Russ Van Alstyne Mystery (Fergusson/Van Alstyne Mysteries Book 1) I very rarely say I can't put a book down, but last night I actually stayed up until midnight, reading until I fell asleep. I can't remember how I came across this author; did someone recommend it? Or did I just stumble across it in my Amazon browsing? I honestly don't know, but I know I'll be at the pool later, with my Kindle and iced tea in a insulated cup. I'm going to make the most of these three days!

Good for you! I've been really dragging the last couple of weeks, not sleeping or eating well, just worn out. Haven't felt well the last few days, either. Can't tell you why, but I am. I think it may have something to do with the seemingly nonstop rain we've had the past few weeks. This is going to be the wettest May on record EVER in the state. Nothing like fixing your long-term drought in two weeks! It's almost like we have seasonal affective disorder....

I've shut the door and am done for 3 days. I just need some time away from everything and everybody, just me and the dog.
