THINGS I COULD DO TODAY

My family is gone on a weekend Scout camp. Martin left last night with the older kids...they were planning to sleep outside in "wind-protected lean-tos" if the weather cooperated last night. Since it was clear with a brilliant bright moon I hope they did. Today it's grey and raining: not so fun for a camp, but Anders and Karin left this morning with their backpacks stuffed to the brim and smiles on their faces so I'm sure they'll be having a good tiime regardless.

I woke up at 7:30 when Anders did, and promptly fell back asleep until they came to say goodbye at 8:45. But I couldn't go back to sleep after that because the possibilities for all the things I could do today were bouncing around in my brain like jumping beans. I suppose I shouldn't be as gleeful over family-free days as I am, but o! they really are lovely. Much as I love my family, it's nice to have a downtime-day. I have things I should be doing and things I could be doing and things I haven't had a chance of doing and we shall see which of them get jumbled out of my giant pocket of possibilities into reality today!
  • Go back to bed
  • Go back to bed and read
  • Cozy up on the couch and read
  • Go to town and hit the bookstore
  • Have sushi for dinner while I'm in town
  • or make my favorite dish for dinner: salmon, rice, sautéed kohlrabi, snap peas and artichoke hearts
  • Call a friend
  • Work on AWC stuff
  • Fix the presentation I didn't have time to do at work yesterday
  • Laundry
  • Closet purging: perhaps the perfect rainy day job!
  • Watch The Fall, finally!
  • Put recyclables in outside bins
  • 40 minute treadmill session
  • Art around in my neglected collage book project
  • Surf the web for beautiful and interesting things
  • Write a poem
  • Go to the movies
  • Call my mom
  • Figure out when & where Karin's soccer match is tomorrow

  • ALL OF THE ABOVE?!
Oh boy! How much can I pack into one day of total selfishness?
