The last few days have felt like summer — breezy, sunny, 75 degrees. I’ve been a little overwhelmed at work, so I’ve made it a point to set aside a little time for myself to do something relaxing every day this week. Monday, I spent my lunch break enjoying a sandwich on a quiet bench at the beach. Last night, I had a nice dinner alone at the bar at 501 City Grill. Tonight, I took a long bath and successfully completed quite few crossword puzzles.

The wind is picking up, and the rain is about to start — maybe our last thunderstorm of the year? The temperature will take a nosedive by morning, but for now…the door is open, the fan is on, and I’ve got Radio Margaritaville playing in the background. I’ve got my fingers crossed that tomorrow is an easier day at work, but I’ll be wearing my new red rain boots, and I’m planning to treat myself to a Peppermint Mocha and a manicure just in case. And even if things get super-stressful, I’ve already got a spa appointment for a facial scheduled for Friday afternoon. =)

I hope you’re having a better week than me!

    I’m so proud of you ….. in so many ways. You work harder than anybody I know (not to mention you’re damn good at what you do) and you’re purposeful about taking time for yourself to recharge your batteries and decompress after a stressful period. Go and enjoy that manicure AND spa day, you deserve it girl!!!!

      Thanks. 🙂 We got an extension on the proposal I’m working on, so my spa appointment shall remain intact for tomorrow. 🙂 Crazy week, though. And it’s like 35 degrees now! WTF?
