It’s New Year’s Day, and it has been a good one so far. I’m grateful that I didn’t have to work today and thankful that I got several things accomplished. I like being productive regardless of which day of the week it is and whether I accomplished something big or small.
I drove to Frederick to visit Davidus Cigars to pick up a particular cigar the Westminster store didn’t have and also to look at humidors. I paid a couple of bills and started serious editing on the novel I wrote during National Novel Writing Month. I put together a crock pot of pot roast to cook for dinner tomorrow. I did a load of my dog’s bedding. And I ironed. See? Productive!
The drive to Frederick was great. There was hardly anyone on the roads outside of Westminster and Frederick, so I had some quality driving time to bask in the solitude of the drive. I love to think, to ponder things. It was my “me” time today.
It’s going to be a very busy year at work. Tomorrow kicks off the new year and a multitude of studies and analyses that we already know we will be doing. Excellent; it’s great to have a plan.
So now as I write this I know the remaining hours of this day will be spent relaxing with a nice cup of tea from Teavana with my feet sprawled on the ottoman as we watch something (to be determined) on the TV. A nice ending to a peaceful New Year’s Day.
I hope we all have a great 2013!
