Daily Prompt: Sparkling or Still
What’s your idea of a perfect day off: one during which you can quietly relax, doing nothing, or one with one fun activity lined up after the other? Tell us how you’d spend your time.
Ahh….the thought of a day off. Working 10-11 hour days takes a tole on me. But that is the price I have to pay for spending every spare minute of paid time off on a vacation last summer. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Having a large chunk of time with no responsibilities was good for me. Even started a novel which starts as:
“Julie was devastated when her beloved cat, Sophia, disappeared. Presumed dead and eaten by coyotes, Julie declared the disappearance as the worst event of her life. She was wrong. The worst day was three weeks later when the cat came home. It took months for Julie to realize this.”
So I am a still person who never stays still. Given the gift of a day off, I want to play with my art supplies, start another project, cook a fancy dinner, perhaps go for a walk on the beach with Bob and the dog.
But not today. Today, I’ll pick up the 10 boxes of persimmons from my garage and take them to work. Have lots of fun giving them away while solving the worlds woes. If not the worlds woes, at least get one or two tasks done. Work way too many hours earning some time off next week. Come home late and have a good dinner (at least a hot homemade dinner) prepared with love by Bob. Go to bed. And then repeat without the fun of persimmons tomorrow. At least I have a good job.
