Indulgently indolent

After a long period of “go, go, GO”, this weekend I’m not going anywhere.

What am I doing?

  • Reading (with the Kindle app on my iPad)
  • Napping (whoever came up with the idea to curl up and sleep in the middle of the day should have a day – or week – named for them; genius)
  • Tweeting and re-tweeting
  • Bare minimum of laundry so that we can get by next week

I did have a brief burst of activity yesterday when I got the batteries changed on a bunch of watches that haven’t worked for about a year (yes I still wore them – they’re decorative even when non-functional, sort of like me), did a phone consultation with a designer who is going to make this space a little more “me”, dropped off electronic waste and paper products to be shredded at the Earth Day event at work (where I also picked up the package from Eloquii that was waiting for me), and went to see Salmon Fishing in the Yemen at our local movie theater (it’s good).

What’s on the agenda for tomorrow? Not really sure, to be honest. More napping and reading will definitely make appearances and I’d also like to drive over to the coast (where it’s cooler) for some quality time with my camera. I picked up a macro lens over a month ago and still haven’t ventured out with it, so no better time than the present, right?

It might be time to think about dinner. Of course I could also take another little nap. (Yawn.)

  1. So true, napping is such sweet bliss.
    (also i saw in your bio you have a Pug, I have two! I love pugs!)

    • Napping is one of the best indulgences in life as far as I’m concerned. My Grandpa used to swear by them, even having a small couch moved into his office way back in the 70s so that he could take his afternoon “siesta” right after lunch every day. He lived to be 96 years old, so I think he was on to something with the napping!

  2. Napping? Sleep and I are long lost friends :( I have a 3yr old and a 2 yr old so there is no such things as naps or even a good nights sleep in this house. I have people comment all the time that I must enjoy nap time. I would…if it happened at my house. My 3yr old decided long ago that she doesn’t need naps. That means no down time/nap time for mommy! Enjoy the peace and I’ll keep trying to remind myself that the chaos is worth it in the end ;)
