When you're playing hooky

When you've procured for yourself a burn-out recovery day, you have to do it upright.

An excellent start to any day begins at the temple. It's especially satisfying to do the Lord's work when you're supposed to be in a cubicle somewhere.

After a quick lunch, grab a book and read outside. It's a beautiful day out.

Next, let's hit the matinee showing of the latest must-see movie.

But first, buy a treat with your spare change. That's what it's for.

And if you're lucky, you'll get an entire theater to yourself.

When the movie's over, you'll be ready to move around a bit—so why not explore some new walking trails in the luscious spring sunshine and see what you can find?

And be sure to take more pictures of flowers. Because it's fun.

When you get home, this would be the optimal time to start preparing for a fabulous dinner. But chances are you don't have any food to cook, so plan on enjoying leftovers again later.

Oh my, look at the time. The work day is just ending.

The rest of the evening is yours to do with as you wish. If you've followed these instructions, you should be sufficiently recharged by bedtime.


  1. :) Aw - this made me feel better just walking through it. What beautiful pictures and what an awesome day!

    Also - I have that book about Lincoln. I don't think I"ve read it, but it's one that I got once thinking "this is a really cool book that I should read".

  2. I thought the exact same thing about the Lincoln book! My dad was going to sell it back, so I took it, thinking it'd be an interesting read. 5-6 years later, I still haven't read it.
