On detours

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery while on a detour.  ~Author Unknown

I’m deviating from my path by taking tomorrow off.   I’ll get all my weekend “to-dos” done in the wee hours of the morning but mostly, mostly I want a day without conference calls, meetings and a lot of other people.  A day tucked up next to the weekend; a day that’s mine.  I’ll putz, I’ll clean, I’ll read, and I’ll play.  Friday night with find me hanging with the hubbs and by Saturday morning, I’ll be up early again, happily prepping for the small dinner party we’re hosting that night.  It will very closely resemble my best day. Because all of the weekend chores will be done, I’ll have given myself the gift of extra time to putter in the kitchen,  stirring and sauteing, sampling and assembling all of the delicious foods I’m serving, some for the first time.

There are work colleagues who’ll question why I’d “burn” a vacation day to do things such as this and my answer, as always, is “because I can.”   They don’t get it and that’s fine. I do. And I’m smiling as I write this.

When’s the last time you deliberately detoured from your path?
