OK, so I got a little carried away yesterday. The announcement isn’t big by the standards of the world. It’s big by my standards. In fact, I am stoked.
I’m taking some time off.
Not from writing – I have miles to go before I sleep on that score. But I’ve decided to step away from a couple work-related tasks for the month of August. I’m taking a break from writing here in the blog, responding to non-critical email and correspondance, and anything else I can let go of for a few weeks without my world falling apart.
We are calling it a home-based vacation. What kinds of thrilling things will I be doing, besides writing? The list is endless:
Killing poison ivy
Picking up sticks
Painting the bathroom
Refinishing a table (maybe)
Haunting the library and gym
I vow to eat blueberries and corn on the cob and clams. I might have to drive to Philly for a water ice.
I vow to drink lemonade every day.
I vow to watch sunsets and moonrises.
I vow to slather on sunscreen.
I vow to spend part of every day utterly lost in a book.
What else do you think I should do with my vacation?
I’ll be dropping in here to check comments and if anything startling or earth-shaking happens, I’ll post about it. But with your kind permission, I am going to kick back a little.
