Everyone needs a down day. A quiet day in which work obligations fall by the wayside.
Since I am neither a regimented person or particularly observant, I am chosing my own set of rules.
1) Work – I am taking a day a week in which I don’t do work unless it is an emergency. Work is what I define as work. I don’t have problems with electricity. I live in a B-hut which will be pitch black inside unless I turn off and on lights. I don’t consider computer games, knitting, reading, watching videos or listening to audio books work.
2) people – I am living on a base with vast numbers of other people. While it is true that I do not interact with each and everyone of them on a daily basis – there are a lot of them around. On my quiet day – I am not dealing with other people without important provication.
3) food – eating what I want?
So, my day was spent reading, knitting, a few computer games, and hearing audio books. I got take-out from the Dragon DFAC for supper. I didn’t go shopping, to the post office or finance. I ran no errands or did any major cleaning.
And tomorrow I might just be up for being back and work refreshed. Or at least as muich so as one can with the discovery that 20+C outside does not guarentee warm water in the shower after a significant number of those strangers beat you to the shower in the morning…..
