It’s a gorgeous morning. I’d like to take a walk before the temperature exceeds the humidity. I’d like to tackle the expanding pile of laundry before summer’s end. Small patches of bare space are peeking through the papers that blanket the surface of my desk. The house is in a state a of disarray, the result of a neglectful owner caught in a daily struggle to learn the art of balance. I want to catch up with friends, return phone calls, answer emails. Take care of business, have a little fun.
I need a day off.
Blog writing as a hobby is an all-consuming adventure that eats up a huge chunk of my day. By the time I close the clamshell, it’s lunchtime and I need a nap. I need to loosen up a bit and relax some of the rigidity that has closed in around me in an effort to get a tighter grip on self-discipline. A blog a day keeps balance away.

Read Julia’s blog is on a friends’ daily to do list, perhaps a have to entry rather than a want to. God bless her for her loyalty. Maybe she needs a day off too.
I need to get out on this lovely morning and walk off some of the excess body that I have accumulated during these days as a pandemic shut-in. I need to clean up my act, get myself back in proper working order, do some ironing.
Professor Blog has granted my request for one day off and excused me from the classroom for a field-trip in search of balance. Yay!
Ta tah for now. See you tomorrow.

Loved this little piece. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you so much for sharing. Just came back from the walk, the kitchen is cleaned up, the trash is emptied, the ironing is next, then on to the desk, and after that . . . who knows . . .? Have a great day!
You’re supposed to have your day off. Stop hanging out on your blog! :p Enjoy the day.
Good point. Thanks for reminding me. Oops I did it again! Bye
