A Year of Gratitude - Day Twenty-one

Day 21 - Time Off
I did very little today, and it felt wonderful.  I slept in late.  I had a late breakfast (consisting basically of coffee and a banana).  I relaxed.    
The weather could not have been nicer, and I had the top down on my car as I drove to the gym, to the glass studio, to get a bite to eat, and back to my temporary home.
I had fresh asparagus with dinner that spent a total of two minutes between being cut from the plant and being cooked (briefly, of course) - I have never cut my own asparagus before today.  I rather envy Paul & Jim their garden as much - maybe more - than their home.  What an incredible place.  (In reality, I don’t envy them, but I am certainly happy for them.)
This has been a vacation of sorts for me - my time off from job hunting, studying, life - and the only reason I’ll be glad that they return home tomorrow is to see them again.  I will miss this sense of calm.
