Today, I would rather make homemade butternut squash soup than finish my article revisions.
I would rather bake loaves of pumpkin bread than send out sides to those folks sending in a video submission.
I would rather knit a ruff for my dog, Pippin, while watching a movie than brainstorm for any of my three final papers.
I would rather be working on my homemade Christmas gifts (sorry, can't tell you what they are! It's a surprise!) than reading a couple hundred pages of theory.
Some days it's hard to stay focused. Every once in awhile one needs a mini-vacation, a refresher, a way to charge the batteries. As soon as I do finish my article revisions, I think I will indulge in that butternut squash soup. Hopefully that will keep me going through the rest of the work until Thanksgiving!
