You know how people say that you are actually more productive when you are already busy? I think at points that may be true for me when it comes to writing. When my life is so jam-packed that I can’t even think straight, writing relieves me worries. When glorious summer hits and I am free as a bird, the idea of spending one more minute than necessary inside is downright disturbing.
Instead of writing, reading other posts, or commenting, I spent this past week with the intention of having as much fun as possible. This included…
playing golf*bring food to a family potluck*swimming*adventuring to one of my favorite restaurants*packing a picnic in my recently acquired picnic basket*eating said picnic with one of my best friends out on the lawn in a state park*watching a funny movie*wandering through a rose garden and trying out my photography skills*getting my nails done by someone other than myself*watching reruns of Clarissa Explains it All and Doug*taking advantage of the Borders going-out-of-business-sales (sob)*watching a movie that was so bad it was funny*running as the sun came up*jumping in puddles*driving several hours hours to go to a zoo to meet a friend who I see so rarely, I tend to think she’s imaginary*reading a book in less than 24 hours*getting lost looking for a cupcake store*watching horsies run really fast*spontaneous night picnics involving ice cream* and more!
In case you’re worried that I haven’t been reading, don’t be! Here are some posts you can expect from me in the very near future:
- What is the best summer read? Take the poll if you haven’t already! It closes on Wednesday.
- Picnics, The Very Hungry Bookworm style
- Room by Emma Donoghue- WOW
- The beauty of Paperback Swap
- 10-word reviews of some books that have slipped through the cracks
While you wait, enjoy the sun! Go outside and run around or jump in puddles or build a sand castle or yeah, you get my point :)
