Stay in bed with my Netbook and my reading basket, check and reply to email, read and comment on my favorite blogs, stroll through Facebook and Twitter, clip interesting articles to Evernote, to read later, write a blog post, read a few pages from one or more of my reading-in-progress and work on writing and editing projects.
I started doing this last week, when I was down with the flu. I like the way it puts a whole new spin on my day. When I get out of bed, I don’t rush around doing chores. I remain in a relaxed frame of mind for the rest of the day. The chores that used to drive me crazy until I did them, well, they get done, when they get done.
This won’t last forever. I return to babysitting granny duties in September, so this darling ritual will shift to Saturday mornings. Meanwhile, I’m milking it for all it’s worth and savoring every divine moment.
