Luxury for me is having a couple of hours of free time so I can lay on the couch! It happens so infrequently that for me it is a big thing.
The morning was busy, and I had to get up early. I met my dad for breakfast, then went to the gym for indoor cycling. It is still too hot to ride outside even though I am dying to try those new trails I was told about. I worked hard on the gym bike. I also remembered as I pedaled how there is a big difference between a person who just teaches spin class at the gym and one who is a real rider. Today’s instructor was a “spinner.” But that is what is good about those classes, I can still work as hard as I need to even though the rest of the class is doing easy stuff.
When I got home, I did yard work for a couple of hours, then I finally took a shower, and ate lunch. I was feeling drowsy by then and I had promised myself a nap if the opportunity arose. I found myself alone in the house for a little while so I even had control of the TV! I watched the end of “The Shawshank Redemption,” and then I watched the entire “Poltergeist” movie while dozing off a few times. You know how it is, when you get to watch what you want, sometimes an old movie is just the thing. A favorite of mine is “Fargo.” I have watched it at least 10 times.
Later, I even sewed up holes in some clothes that have been sitting on a pile for years, in some cases. I was sick of looking at the pile.
After that, I did some more relaxing, which for me is so unusual and appreciated that I hate to break the cycle. But, I will be on the motorbike tomorrow for a while, hoping to be home in time to watch football and squeeze in even more relaxing before the craziness of the week starts all over again Monday morning.
