Lazing the Summer Away

I'm on vacation! First order of business was to attend a fabulous wedding and reconnect with some of my bestest friends from home. Then, 4 days all to myself wherein I did a ton of languishing chores and set up a little basement workshop area for myself where I can sew and be crafty any time. I have already hemmed one entire pair of pants. The weather has been perfect--high clear summer days shading into fall (that is, not too hot). There are still a lot of things on my to-do list for the week, thanks to Labor Day I still have 3 more days off coming my way. Being on vacation is really, perhaps inordinately, exciting. If only I could take off weeks and weeks like a French person.
