Down time

It's rare that I allow myself an afternoon of lazing, reading and general purposelessness but this has been one of them. This past work week was as intense as any have been in recent memory, though sometimes I think the sheer magnitude of possible consequences inherent in my daily profession is something that my brain compartmentalizes in order to keep moving forward, so who knows how many times I have forgotten days and weeks equally ferocious. Thus, I am here in front of this wood stove enjoying quiet and giving in to the languidness of a cloudy winter day.
Can't believe it's mid February and this is the first fire in the wood stove. There are a number of reasons for this:
  • a sweet lame old dog who can't make it up and down the basement stairs well at all
  • a new flat screen TV and streaming Roku box on the first floor
  • a winter that has so far included more weekends crafting (yay!) than being lazy
As much as I like and appreciate the pellet stove, it lacks something when compared to this. Now that I've shared, I have to get back to being lazy.

  1. This sounds heavenly. I would kill for a day of laziness. In fact, I fantasize about spending an entire day in bed with a stack of books, some knitting, and my iTouch.
