On Vacation

Ahhh. The next five days are vacation. Well, sort of. As much vacation as I can muster up these days. I'll still be petsitting and doing a little babysitting. And calling in to a work meeting. And keeping up with house stuff, taking the cat to the vet, meeting with a graphic design client and cleaning out the closet.... but still, I'm going to make it a vacation.

Dammit.

I'm going to take some clues from this one here.

Let's get a closeup of that action.

My thoughts exactly, Cleo. (isn't she cute? I love the belly...)

My vacation plans include:

* (aforementioned chores, but we won't focus on those)
* reading. a lot.
* making summer salads AND some of the grilled cheese sandwiches featured in this month's Sunset Magazine. Yum.
* perhaps finding a cheap hammock and lugging it to the park, to snuggle up in with pillows, blankies, snacks and a pile of books
* Doing some closet sorting (the fun kind, the outfit-planning kind)
* napping (something I never do)
* perhaps a picnic in the cemetery
* sewing

Sounds good, right? I'm going to work very hard at not working too hard. I really, really, really, really, really, really need a break.

And a grilled cheese sandwich. And a corn salad with avocado and dill. Yum.

that sounds like the perfect sort of vacation. whenever you get tempted to do something other than relax, just find Cleo. Im betting she does a lot of what shes doing in the above pictures.
