I am luxuriating in the time off from school that I'm currently enjoying.

Yes, I'm tackling to do lists and projects, but I'm doing them in stillness, and at a pace that really works for me. (Yes, stillness, my word for the year is Still, so it's nice to embrace it in this way, instead of hunting for it amidst busy chaos.)

I stayed up way too late last night, puttering and reading online.

I slept in way too long this morning, making up for the staying up late.

But it's lovely.

And today I'm tackling little things - resume updating, menu planning, blog post writing.

I'm going to read and respond to comments on last week's post about the body and food.

I'm going to go through some boxes to see if I can locate the vegetable steamer and crockpot that have been in storage for two years, to make my living situation more flexible, and allow me to have a bit more creativity in meal planning.

I'm going to clean off my desk which has been the dumping spot for the detritus of the last couple weeks.

I'm going to knit.

I'm going to watch last night's episode of The Amazing Race (even though it makes the travel bug within me ache painfully) and vicariously enjoy the travels of other people.

I'm might go for a walk, or do a yoga video.

Basically, I'm going to luxuriate, and I think it's going to be amazing.
