Branching out and chillin' out

Branching out

Today is a "Me Day" and I'm not sure how that worked out. Somehow with MK (female half) AND the Tall Guy's sister both in town, I am ending up with a reasonable amount of daylight hours all on my own.
I should be doing laundry. I should be going to Target and buying toothpaste and paper towels. I should be going to the mechanic to determine if my tire is going flat or just needs air.
What AM I doing you ask? I'm sitting on my couch. Looking at the recycling that needs to go out. I'm sitting reading Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer. I'm knitting on the Monkeys and looking at the scarf that's pictured thinking about knitting on it for a minute.
Do I feel guilty? Not really. I don't have a whole lot of time before I need to go meet the Tall Guy and Tall Guys sister and then meet up with MK (female half) later. So, I've decided to relish my few hours of relative quiet, make a few phone calls and breath a little. Wow. Its amazing how nice quiet can be for a hour or three when you stop to enjoy it.

  1. I just watched something on TV about Into the Wild...I guess the family finally okay'd Sean Penn to make it into a movie. Let me know how you like the book.
