A Day Off
Things have been crazy at work recently. Good, mostly, but crazy. So, to make up for some of the 13-hour days that I've been working, I took today off. This was perhaps the best idea I've had in a very long time.
I slept in. This alone was a joy.
Then I wrote for a little while, and ended up with a few hundred words that I didn't want to throw away -- almost more progress than the rest of the year to date.
Then I got my hair cut, which is such a joy I can't even tell you. I've been trying to grow out a bad haircut for months
, hating my hair all the while, but now it's pretty and shapely again. (Toronto people: my new stylist is Maddie of Red Label Hair Co.
, which is right by Runnymede station -- great cut, great price, really nice atmosphere in the salon. Lots of natural light. Good stuff.)
And now I'm slowly adding content to my new shiny website as a cake bakes and the Olympic Opening Ceremonies play in the background. There is a half-finished sculpture necklace and Kristine Smith's Rules of Conflict
waiting for me on the living room table for when I get tired of typing and baking.
And today is Friday. The weekend stretches out before me, promising relaxation and sparkly things and non-stop Olympic sports coverage. This, my friends, is what I call a good time.
