Un-multi-tasking

My first sabbatical Sunday

Technically my sabbatical does not start until tomorrow. At least that is what I have been telling myself. But the effect is already there. For the first time in a very long time I did not get up at 6am to do my weekly food shopping at Shoppers Food Warehouse. Actually I am not going to do any food shopping at all! Max will just have to fend for himself!

Today, I really read the NYTimes, in fact there is a great article that everyone should read.

Today I languished over the paper, instead of reading one or two sections and running upstairs to sew. And I ironed clothes- for Belize, and did 4 loads of laundry and filled up my bird feeders, and of course, the most fun- went out to see the puppies with Max. And I basically did everything BUT sew, and it was heavenly knowing that tomorrow I will be able to go into my studio and work. But today it was just fun seeing all those cute puppies, and spending time with Max. I can feel myself starting to relax...
