Alice Cooper on the Muppet Show-- Too Cool!
Time to do anything, everything or nothing is wonderful but it does take a day or two to sink in. Wednesday afternoon, the Cozy Book Nook family went to see How To Train Your Dragon to kick off our traditional summer movie-ganza. Thursday was basic housekeeping day and a town run to prep for Little Cozy Book Nook's playdate on Friday.
So two busy days that could have been any weekend except it was the middle of the week... summer time freedom began to settle over me like a cozy comforter. Then Thursday night, I actually joined the family to watch a dvd movie... an entire movie on a weeknight with no multi-tasking involved... freedom tickled around the edges of my psyche.
Friday morning it happened.... the aaahhh moment... the summer holiday is actually here moment... the no job for two and half months and loads of precious time moment. Pure bliss! Can you guess what triggered this joyous awakening? Just the simple act of reading a whole magazine over a bowl of cereal. :o)
Sounds mundane, I know, but having time for the mundane is wallow-worthy in my book. So here I am wallowing in all the amazing potential summer has to offer. Wallowing over time for: sleeping... serious but leisurely decluttering... home improvement projects... gardening (not weeding but the beauty and eating involved)... killing poison ivy (yeah, I'm vicious)... traveling... trying new recipes... working puzzles and playing games... running through sprinklers... and, of course, reading... glorious summer reading.
Will I make much of a dent in my TBR mountain? I don't know... the library always has intriguing summer offerings to lead me astray but I do know this much: I will definitely get to the bottom of my magazine TBR stack. It is a whole lot shorter!
Happy Summer to all the educators... and to everyone else too!
