Well, here we are. Day 7 of my sabbatical. Most frequently asked questions: Are you going to write a book? What do you do with that much free time? Where are you going?
Well, here you have it. I have more time on my hands and do a bit more writing. But I knew I also wanted to focus on doing things I don’t normally get to do (because of a busy schedule, work, etc).
Here’s what I did…
I went 7 days without putting on makeup. (And he still loves me just the way I am! He’s a keeper!)
I procrastinated on at least one thing each day (great advice from my lil’ brother).
I went for a morning bike ride on the coast.
I went to the thrift store.
I baked a vegetable lasagna – and then took it over to a friend.
I enjoyed a few brunches and went on coffee dates and enjoyed impromptu time with friends over gelato.
I watched the peonies bloom.
I got caught up on a season of The Good Wife.
I pre-baked some potatoes for a few morning scrambles.
I enjoyed an amazing ham/potato/cheese scramble.
I went to the thrift store again.
I read up on new interests.
I set some lunch and coffee and gelato dates for next week.
I also slowed down. I read more of my favorite book. I browsed (online) less. I created more.
I took deeper breaths.
I enjoyed life…
Stay tuned for next week’s riveting sabbatical developments…
