31 Days: Whatever I Want

On Fridays, I love to mess up my kitchen. It’s my official day off. Although I almost always tend to a few work-related things on Fridays, I generally give myself the freedom to do very little. Mostly, I like to cook. But other than that, I don’t do very much.

Or, more accurately, I do whatever I want. Because today I made two batches of brownies and a dozen cookies for the marching band’s Fall Classic tomorrow. And I folded four loads of laundry. And I made a new chili recipe for dinner. That’s actually a lot of stuff, just that right there. I also went grocery shopping and ran a few errands. I managed some work email. I washed some dishes.

But it was only what I wanted to do, and that makes all the difference, doesn’t it?

Because what I did not want to do was take a shower, or even put on clean clothes. I pulled on dirty jeans. I’m still wearing the same shirt I wore yesterday. And I slept in that shirt.

I washed my face and brushed my teeth – because I wanted to. And this evening I used a little hairspray and put on a nice sweater and I went to watch the marching band play at the final home football game.

But I didn’t put on a clean shirt.

It sort of feels like a little victory over the daily grind, you know?

I live on the edge.

Here’s what I noticed most today; this is a REALLY good recipe! It flashed by on my Facebook feed -thanks, whoever posted it – and I thought I’d give it a try today. Delicious; spicy in a perfect-for-a-cold-night kind of way. 

And it’s very, very pretty.

You’re welcome.
