It was my first day off in Baltimore in a long time, and I spent it well - slept in a little, went to the gym, picked up 24 free books at The Book Thing, went to Target and bought a home phone, paid rent, mowed the lawn, finished two books. I almost went to the movies solo tonight, but decided against it, opting to clean the house and get some schoolwork done instead. I still don't have my cell phone back, and can't call any of my friends, but it was kind of nice to be quiet and solitary for the day. My vacation to Michigan wasn't relaxing at all, and since then I've been running around to weddings and goodbye parties and softball games.
Tonight was very relaxing, a night full of reading out on the porch in the beautiful evening weather. One of the good things about having a huge unsightly tree/bush in front of the porch (if I had bought this house, that tree would have been out of here as soon as humanly possible) is that I'm afforded a lot of privacy and shade on the front porch. This evening, I read for about an hour out there, using Holden as a footrest.
