Mornin’, everyone. How are you doing? I hope everyone got some good sleep and is feeling ok this morning. What are your plans this weekend?

Remember to take care of yourself first this weekend. We’ve all had a rough go of it recently. Take some time to eat and drink well, if you can, do some stretching or go for a walk, treat yourself to a little spa action, read or watch watch something escapist, if you need to. And, if you like ‘em, give and get some hugs.

On top of the hell of the national news over the last couple weeks, I’ve had a rough couple of weeks at work, which means the house has fallen apart and I haven’t seen Homey much.

Today, I’m starting with yoga and then I’m going to treat myself to a fancy coffee. After that, I have planned nothing. Sweet, beautiful nothing. Homey’s mom is having a family reunion this afternoon. I have informed him that I will not be going to that and, because he’s wonderful, he was like, “Oh, of course! I wouldn’t expect you to!” Kind, understanding man.

So, I’ll get a chunk of the day to myself. When he gets home, I’m going to make us a big, beautiful harvest salad for dinner, with some roasted potatoes on the side; if I feel up to it, I’ll stop and get us some nice cheese and bread from the co-op. After dinner, I’m going to drink wine and eat chocolate and cuddle with my husband.

A day without news, a day without work, and a day without anyone but Homey sounds just like heaven right now.

How about you guys?
