Yesterday was my first day off since late June.
It was heavenly.
I cooked a nice breakfast. Drank two cups of coffee sitting down. Finished a past-due horoscope forecast for a client.
Yes, I --a writer who should read as much as I write--actually read a novel on my Kindle. A Thousand Things is a fantasy about a woman with a club foot. Knowing she is not marriage material, she is free to study botany with her grandfather, who lost his scientific reputation after he returned from an expedition to the continent of magic with a giant lotus petal. When the petal magically disappears, she sets out to find another--and to become the first accredited woman botanist. She is plunged into a world of danger and magic.
And so was I.
