sshhh... i iz makng "to do" planz

I am on vacation.

Thus, there are things that absolutely must be done.

Here is my list, just off the top of my head.

  • Blog

  • Make beef stew (for dinner)

  • Make meatloaf (for freezing)

  • Make carrot-basil soup (for freezing)

  • Make turkey soup (with leftovers, for freezing, in case you didn't get that)

  • Pay bills

  • Fill out insurance paperwork (last task from the Summer of the Flooding Basement)

  • Do a LOT of yardwork

  • Write a small proposal

  • Catch up on academic reading

  • Clean out the fridge (which has a number of interesting science experiments in progress)

  • Renew driver's licence (which almost certainly has expired, but I'm afraid to look)

  • Admire new table and chairs that we scooped off kijiji on the weekend


I could take a nap.

I want to, I really do (take pictures, that is). But my camera is broken. And I can take pictures with my phone, but then I don't know what to do with them.

I was going to grab the pics of kijiji, but the vendor took the ad down immediately. :(

You call this a vacation?!
I already took a nap for you after reading the list.
But after the nap some of those things on your list could be very theraputic.
