I could have (should have) done something really constructive with an unexpected day off. I could have (definitely should have) cleaned the stove and oven and degreased it all etc. I could have washed the kitchen floor and the door frames. Yup – I could have done a lot today. Let it be noted that I did do two loads of laundry, expect, to tell the truth, I have no idea what “doing” laundry really is. People moan about it as if it’s a chore. All you do is sort it into a couple of plies, throw it into a machine and turn it on. It isn’t exactly scrubbing on a washboard or pounding it with rocks.
But I digress. Teh day was (and still is) gloriously sunny. So the stove did not get cleaned and neither did my kitchen floor. On the other hand, Abby and I did get out into the park and complete with camera and meandered down some little-visited trails and soaked up some sun and just generally felt very, very good. Frankly, I think we made the right choice.
Here’s a bit of the result:
