A Post About Absolutely Nothing
Today is a statutory holiday in my part of the world. Making it a 3 day weekend. I suspect about 90% of non-retail jobs have the day off with pay.
The weather here is is ideal for a long weekend – hot, with a slight breeze to keep the air comfortable.
Rather then camping or hiking, we’ve spent the weekend at home. And we had a great time!
The first step in enjoying our weekend at home was that we continued to ignore the gaping hole in our basement roof – evidently when it comes to unwanted home reno’s I am a de-motivator as I continually chose to do anything but fix the hole. So, we spent the weekend doing funner things, like:
The house is now cleaner, well at least a few rooms are.
We bought some groceries.
Making copious amounts of blueberry spice jam, saskatoon berry jam, strawberry jam and black cherry jelly.
We folded 3 hampers full laundry.
We slept in.
We walked the dog every day. And I took a few photos.
We enjoyed a few beers.
We made wonderful food each evening.
I even started reading a real book (I used to read books all the time, now I read blogs).
We spent an evening out enjoying the company of some friends.
To celebrate the actual holiday, I am working. As I am now both self-employed, I do not get paid for statutory holidays unless we work (there are many perks to being self-employed, this is not one of them). A project has me away for a night again this week, so I already know it’s going to be an insane week. So today, I am sitting at my desk hoping to get enough work done that I wont feel overwhelmed all week. And, I’m hoping that I’m productive enough that we can take next Friday off and enjoy an unofficial long weekend (taking a long weekend when every else is working is probably considered a perk of being self-employed). So, here’s to hoping I don’t procrastinate the day away.
As I sit at my desk working today, I hope everyone else is enjoying a happy work-free day!
