Lady of Leisure

As I sit and write this I have to admit, I’m a little sad. Today is the last day of my week long vacation. Monday I head back to the evil day job. I haven’t missed it. I have enjoyed every minute of being off. I filled this week with all things I love.

Family, my sister and mom came down from Indiana and along with my mom’s side of the family we had a family reunion of about 150-200 people strong. It was a beautiful day and a wonderful time spent with family. I love these peps!

Friends, on Monday my besties MJ, Barb, Di, and I made our yearly trip to MO to visit Lamberts. We’ve been going every year for the past ten years. We had a day-long trip in which we visited some new sites, did a little antiquing, some geocaching and generally just enjoyed each other’s company. We all work and have families and sometimes it’s just hard to get together.

Food, I have surely gained ten pounds this week. I have eaten some amazing food. From the family reunion to Lamberts to my own kitchen…if I’m off much longer I may not be able to waddle through the door.

Reading, it would not have been time off if I hadn’t made time to read. There is nothing more enjoyable then sitting out on my deck in the glorious Tennessee autumn reading a good book. Finished one started another…moving on.

Writing, I did do a little work this week. I received back the first round of my edits on Cast in Stone, due out in November. It was ugly. I’m pretty sure the editor hates me, but I finished and sent it back and am working on another story. Sorry Ashley.

I really like this not-going-to-work stuff. I just need to figure out a way I can make a living without leaving my house. I’ll get back to you when I figure it out.
