A Summer's Day Off

Even island residents get a day off now and then in the summer. So many folks work two or three jobs, and the summer is, of course, our busy season. But when we have a day off we make the best of it. Here is Lou Ann's and my "schedule" for today:

  • Make blueberry pancakes for breakfast (David & Lachlan asked us to join them at the coffee shop, but we'd already sat down at the table)
  • Continue with the next step in bread baking (Lou Ann started it last night)
  • Write this blog/Write other articles
  • Pay some bills
  • Write a bit more....or read....or make a few phone calls
  • Fix shrimp for lunch
  • Work on the bread
  • Spend time at the beach -- swim, walk, read
  • Nap
  • Mess about in the yard (if time permits)
  • Bake the bread, wait a half hour, and then relax with homemade bread and wine
  • Go out to dinner with family
  • Sit on the pizer and enjoy the evening
It's not vacation, but it's not a bad way to live.
