Today I'm living like I'm retired rather than like I have an extra day for catching up. I walked a couple of miles with my husband, read for an hour, put stain on one of my new Adirondack chairs, wandered in the yard inspecting the broccoli and the spinach and the neighbor's chickens and the humane squirrel trap on our front porch.
My mind is moving ahead already, thinking about my schedule once I'm not working - a commitment I've made to work on my online ESL class for at least an hour a day. To blog or write or query for an hour a day.
At first, I think I will be greedy to read. Like when I was a kid and then a teenager. Magazines and books and Kindle downloads and newspapers and other people's blogs. Filling myself up with the printed word. How wonderful!
For today, I'm going to take a nap instead.
