I feel like I should have done something today with it being I actually had the day off.  Instead I stayed home and did chores.  They needed to get done.  My car needed to be cleaned before the weather took a turn for the worse.  There were loads of laundry.  And there was just tons of other cleaning and de-cluttering to be done.  I always feel so "adult" when I spend the day cleaning.  Part of my mindset says, "You have the day off!  A weekend no less!  Go out and have fun!"  Then the practical side kicks in and I know I'll go crazy looking at the messes.    Plus in two weeks we're heading out to go hiking and look at the leaves changing.  I can't wait.  I've been planning this mini-day trip for months. 

Today, after all the cleaning was done, I felt like cozy-ing  up and reading a book.  For weeks I have been trying to get into and it hasn't been happening.  It seems like it should be a story I love, but it's not holding my interest.  So today I was determined to at least get close to the end--mainly because it's due tomorrow and they wouldn't allow me to renew it.  I got comfy on my couch, the sunlight was streaming in--it was perfect reading whether.  I just couldn't get into it even though I was dying to know what happened!  I've officially given it up and took to wiki to find out how it ends.  As I was reading the summary I got really excited because it sounded so great.  Maybe I'll like the movie better?
