SoCS: Framing the Week

As of today, I’m on vacation.

December of 2018 was the last month I had a full week’s vacation.

I’m so ready.

Let me put a frame around what I have in mind in regard to the week’s agenda.

  1. Spending time with these two crazy kids.

2.  Sleeping in.

3.  Staying in my pajamas as long as possible. If I make it all day, I can award myself bonus points.

4.  Having a morning cup of sweet, milky tea out on the patio with the crazy kids (see #1).

5.  Eating whenever I want.

6.  Taking a nap if I want.

7.  Going to ladies’ game night on Wednesday.

8.  Yoga.

9.  Having a beer and burger with a friend on Friday.

10.  Bike ride.

11.  Meeting up with cousins for lunch on Saturday.

12. Writing, but not blogging. You heard me. No blogging. Only writing. Framing thoughts and putting them into chapters and poems and blathering paragraphs. Starting a project that has gas in my mind, but no power behind the wheel. Finding time to put things on paper.

So, there you go, the structure that wraps around the week in a panoramic rectangle. I suppose there will be more, but I can’t add “Star Trek on Netflix” when that’s a given.

Have a fabulous week everyone!



Stream of Consciousness Saturday is the brainchild of author Linda G. Hill. Every Friday, Linda provides her followers with an inspiring blogger’s prompt. It can be a word or words and sometimes bonus points are involved (my favorite). Linda asks us to write without editing, other than correcting spelling errors.

Just go with the flow.

Like a babbling brook, ambling stream or running river. Click HERE if this type of writing floats your boat or helps with your decision-making. This week’s prompt is “leaves.”  Use it as a word, or find a word with “strain”in it. As always, use any way you’d like.

    Yay! Staycations are so restorative! Your plans sound terrific to me. May time crawl and may the weather do as you please.

      Time crawl…yes. I hope it feels like two weeks. As for the weather, it’s supposed to be really nice with lower humidity. Yay!

    • bikerchick57 says:

      Thanks Dan. I’m going to head out to the store early today, so that I can enjoy the A/C when I get back. Have a wonderful weekend!

    • bikerchick57 says:

      Oh yes, the air conditioning has been on for several days now and will continue until the dewpoint and humidity drops. I’m hoping for a few cooler days so I can spend some time on the patio.

    I love your plans…especially the writing ones! Sometimes vacation is not about writing novels and blogging.. its about capturing moments in words so you can relive them forever.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      Thanks John. This week I’m writing for more personal reasons – not something I want to blog about just yet.

    Sounds very good to me except I’m missing a point about having ice cream and espressos… 😉 Wishing you a great time, my friend!

    Congrats on setting your priorities in order! I hope you had a wonderful week and are recharged and well on the way to completing the WIP!

      I had a great week, Shelley, and I’m not ready to go back to work. I’ve enjoyed going back to bed after I feed the cats in the morning, going to yoga during the day, trying out a new coffee shop, and relaxing. I’ll be trying to catch up with work tomorrow, but can look forward to the next vacation in about six weeks. 🙂

      • Shelley says:

        Aw, that sounds heavenly. I’m glad you relaxed. Did it give you a hint of what retirement would be like? Way to plan ahead for the next vacation! You’re inspiring me to plan one! Happy Monday – hope it flies by!

      • bikerchick57 says:

        Oh yes, Shelley. I thought about retirement a few times, especially last night. It was good to be off!

      • Shelley says:

        It’s hard not to think about retirement, especially when we enjoy the break from the grind. 😉
