Free Time

Have you ever had something get cancelled, freeing up a big chunk of time in your day?

At first, you might think I was disappointed when I heard my web design class was cancelled yesterday.

But it gave me the entire day to myself, which meant an extra five hours of free time that I don’t normally have free on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

After spending about 4-5 hours in the morning on homework projects, I treated myself to a trip to the library for a couple books my mom recommended.

And then I hit the trail! It was a warm sunny afternoon, lucky weather to have on a surprise a day off.

I hunkered down and got a lot done in the morning so I could go out and play in the afternoon. My message here is not new. Many others say it all the time: work hard and then seize the day!

  1. ..its that unexpected turn in the road..i wonder what you are going to create in that time..i’m beginning to think that the turns in the journey create more time for a reason..we just don’t know what at the time..

  2. Looks like you had beautiful weather for your surprise day off – lovely photos – you can really see autumn is creeping in 🙂

  3. I always call those “snow days,” even if they are in summer! I’m so glad you had a little extra time for yourself. How wonderful. And I love how you capitalized on it. By spending time working in the morning, I bet that gives you more free time this weekend, too!

    1. Thanks Stephanie! It was definitely a “snow day.” When we lived in Colorado, we called them Powder Days. It turned out to be such a great day that I’m still cherishing it. And yes, I got so much homework done in the morning that I am not stressing this weekend.
