This weekend was strange. I had nothing to do! Well, nothing required of me. Since November I've been swamped with school work and the usual holiday commitments. This school term has been so light in comparison to last term, I am finished with my work by Wednesday each week. Trust me when I say that is a wonderful surprise! Last term I was doing work until Sunday of every week!
Saturday was a nice daze. I worked on some jewelry making, something I haven't done in almost six months. Then I spent the evening making candles while watching The Discovery Channel. Something about a family in the Alaskan wilderness who herd cattle and hunt bears. Brrr! I needed an extra sweater after that. Of course, watching something like that while making candles makes your mind wander. I kept thinking, "What if I was making these because I HAD to and not because I WANTED to?" Don't take anything for granted, kids!
And yesterday I actually got some writing accomplished! I wasn't writing about writing as my school work has dictated. I sat down and sketched out a story. AND I wrote about five pages in an edit I'm working on. Ahhh. Accomplishment!
Now, it's back to the old grind, figuring out the classes I need to complete my degree, printing out math problems (bleck!) and deciding what to write my end of term paper on in my Linguistics class.
How was your weekend? Do anything fun? Out of the ordinary? Nothing at all?
