I am positively giddy. Tomorrow and Friday I'm taking off of work while Swee'pea goes to daycare and Sugar D goes to work. I get to be all alone in my house. That NEVER happens!

My original plan was to spend a bit of time shooting and/or editing photos and/or blogging and a lot of time throwing out more photos and putting the keepers into albums, but last week I had an epiphany. I could go to the gym and have a leisurely workout followed by a leisurely swim in the saltwater pool! I could get a haircut! I could get a massage! (My shoulder has been REALLY sore and stiff for more than a month.) I could hang out in the peace and quiet of my very own house and then leave whenever I want! On the drop of a hat!

So it will be interesting to see whether I actually achieve anything or if I just flit around like a humingbird in a garden FULL of red tubular flowers, never settling to a single one. I do have some papers to find and sign, and phone calls to make regarding our new house sale (less than a month till we move!), but I've also scheduled a massage AND a haircut for Friday.



And hey - I think tomorrow is my two-year blogiversary. To celebrate, I've updated my blogroll, which hasn't been updated in probably 18 months or more. I used blogger's new Blog List feature to import my feeds from google reader and look at it! It orders them according to the most recent post and even shows the title of the first post. Fancy, eh?

I edited this photo from Havana yesterday and I don't know what I think of it. What do you think?

I hope you get a massage - that'd be perfect.
I love the blue in that photo.

I envy you, that day sounds marvellous.

I love the photo, it somehow manages to look gritty and brightly-coloured at the same time. Which is how I have always imagined Cuba.

Oooooh! That Blogroll is FANCY!

Love the photo. But I always love your stuff, Sin.

Enjoy yourself. You deserve it.

Having the house to yourself is THE BEST. I will have the place to myself for a bit a few weeks from now and am already planning the things I will do all on my own.

Oh my goodness, I crave the day I have the whole house to myself with my entire body!!! I LOVE those days! Hope you have a great one, whatever you do... although the workout and the swim and the massage sound absolutely heavenly to me!!
