SOTDays: What? Oh, something or other

Perfume? Yes, I wore perfume these last two days (Nasomatto Absinth and Andy Tauer Orange Star), but I didn't pay much attention. I'm focused on the finish line where work ends and the holiday starts.

Friday is my last work day this year. I have two weeks off coming up. Ten work days. Plus three weekends. Sixteen days total. Not that I'm counting or anything.

Soon, I will have shifted to a four o'clock-to-noon sleep schedule. I'll be spending over ninety minutes a day in bubble baths, with a corresponding increase in the number of rumpled dampened-and-dried books on my shelves. I'd better order more bubbles. If I don't spend too much time online, I might even read the two books a day that would be required to get me to my goal of one hundred books read this year.

I might cook things. I might sew things. I might declutter. Or I might just engage in three hundred and eighty-four hours of idleness. Not that I'm counting.

  1. There is absolutely no way I'm going to reach 100 books this year. I might get to 80 but that's iffy as well (I'm currently at 75 and no free time on horizon).

  2. I don't think I would be able to read 100 books on a year, but who knows. At this moment I am reading Eugenie Grandet by Balzac. What a story.

  3. I hope you have a good holiday and enjoy whatever it is you end up doing! Make the most of it and hopefully you will also wear soem great perfume. I really like Orange Star by the way.

  4. Ah, good for you! Enjoy your time off and do whatever the hell you want. I'm taking the week off between Christmas and New Years, which seems like such a luxury. Have fun!

  5. Oooh! Eugenie Grandet! I haven't read that in 30 years! I think I need to revisit.

    CF, have some chicken to go with the bubbles!


  6. Yo, Ines! Yeah, I've reached the point where I'd have to read three books a day. I'm not getting there. :)

    Hey, Michael! Thanks! I hope you have a good holiday too. And thanks for the mention on your blog re Orange Star.

    Greetings, Josephine! I love idle time (or time-when-I-can-be-idle-at-my-discretion) _so_ much. Enjoy that week.

    Musette! Ooh. Chicken. We've decided that rather than spending half of Christmas cooking and half an hour eating, we're going to eat chicken fingers and chicken wings. Ha! (Oh, and the new bubbles arrived!)

  7. Vintage Lady! How'd I miss your comment? Balzac, huh? This is one of those realms of the reading world that I haven't explored yet.
