Ah, Friday. And a short one, at that. Today is the first of my two months of "summer days" - essentially stacking my work time earlier in the week, in order to take off half days on Friday.
This year, I've opted for half days rather than full days. While I love three day weekends, and working ten hour days isn't either unusual or hard, I just cannot do it in the summer. My workload is much lighter in the summer, and that makes trying to put in a ten hour day torture.
So, half days. Out of here at 10:30. Yay! Lunch with an aunt and cousin today. Afterwards, pick up a picture I had taken in for framing. Home to maybe do a bit of outside work.
Other than that, no other plans for the weekend. Bliss. I need to start on the t-shirt quilt, get caught up on some picture taking and clean out the refrigerator. Maybe even make a quick run to the city dump.
In spite of the national media's brandishing the term, we are not experiencing a "polar vortex" next week. This cool down was predicted back in December, and is a result of the recurring weather pattern that set up for this year (the one that did bring the vortex in January). I realize people who enjoy hot and sticky are having fits, but personally, I find this the perfect weather - the best of any season. Highs in the mid-sixties to low seventies, sunshine and a gentle breeze.
With luck, I'll get pictures of a couple of charity quilts posted by the end of the weekend, and a couple of other long-overdue things taken care of. We'll see...it's just possible I may spend the weekend just lazing on the patio with a book...
