A Free Day


SOLSC Day 14

Here it is, Wednesday, my one totally free day this week.  Earlier this week I posted about how busy this week and next week would be.  Today is the only day where I don’t have to be somewhere or do something.

If I get several days in a row that are free I usually like to work on a project.  It could be something like cleaning out the garage, organizing my closet or workshop, or going out just to go out.

However, when a free day comes in the middle of a busy week I need to plan my day more judiciously.  I don’t want to go anywhere because I will be out of the house every other day this week.

I don’t want to start a project because if I don’t finish it I can’t get back to it for another week and a half.  At that point I might not feel like finishing it.

So, what are my options for today?  Posting and commenting on TWT is a given, but what else?

Well, I could spend some time reading.  I am down to the last 40 pages of  Hellbent by Gregg Hurwitz.

We are out of sweets to go with our evening cup of tea so I could make some cookies.  I do have a feeling that we will have some Czechoslovakian cookies before the day is over. Would have to put the cats behind closed doors for this because they like to help.

I could just surf the web.  That, however, seems like a waste of time if there is nothing in particular that I am looking for.

I could cook us a good home cook meal since we did or will be eating out most days this week.

There are many things I can do with this free day.  Maybe I’ll just take the day as it comes and do whatever strikes my fancy at the moment.  I find that relaxing.

The madness begins again tomorrow.

    Cookies with tea – perfect. Nothing else needed, except,well, maybe a book. I hope you had the most wonderful Wednesday.

  10. I always enjoy figuring out the possibilities for a free day as well. I do hope you baked some cookies, as those sound delicious. All too often, I end up frittering away a chunk of my time on the Internet and usually wish I’d done something different!

    I trust you have enjoyed your “free day” …. wondering if the cookies got baked or the home-cooked meal made… I baked a blueberry pie, totally unplanned.

  12. “Maybe I’ll just take the day as it comes and do whatever strikes my fancy at the moment” Always sounds like a good plan to me.
