All about me

With Greg off at the World Fantasy Convention, I spent the weekend in Flagstaff. Completely hedonistic. I left work on Friday and went immediately to my massage therapist for an hour-long massage. Then I drove to Flagstaff in the late afternoon. The sun was setting as I drove into the Verde Valley, highlighting the red rocks of Sedona in the distance. So lovely. But my goal was at the base of the San Francisco Peaks.

My time in Flagstaff involved soaks in the jacuzzi, hiking in the beautiful sunny crisp weather, and eating at some of my favorite places. I watched Revenge of the Sith and What The #$*! Do We Know?! I drank cocoa and window-shopped for hippy clothing. I managed to spend only $2.70 at the bead shop. I have arrived home completely relaxed, and the mountain air has helped my lingering cold tremendously.

As much as I love my students, teaching means I'm forced to be more social on a daily basis than I would typically prefer. It was nice to spend some time focused on indulging myself and enjoying some solitude. Mmm...purr...

Taking time for YOU is incredibly important. Unfortunately, I don't get to do it much, if at all, anymore. Some day maybe I will again get to do so.

Sounds like a lovely weekend.

I hope that you get some time to yourself soon, Judy. I think I needed it more than I knew.

What a great weekend!

I came back from WFC exhausted and ready for the weekend all over again. Teaching on Monday was... eh.

Sounds like you have fun at WFC, Sarah! I'd be tired after all that partying, too. :)
