Ever have one of those days? No, not that kind; a pefectly good day. Today was one of those for me. I was able to sleep late, lounge around and generally do just what I wanted to do. I managed to find and save a few jobs to apply for off usajobs.gov and the APHA career site and re-did my resume on their site. Input from a friend of my parents was especially helpful.
I also managed to plan my meals for the week and cook some meat for the upcoming week. I have some chicken and fish to cook up tomorrow afternoon but the plans are made. I am trying to eat healthier meals and eat at home as opposed to opting for the easy (but really expensive) option of eating out. I'm also trying to get out of my dissertation rut of eating sandwiches instead of real meals.
I think what made the day so relaxing is that I could watch TV and read without feeling guilty about it. I watched some episodes of 24 and NCIS this afternoon and spent part of the evening reading two fascinating books: Forgotten God by Francis Chan and Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder. Fascinating for entirely different reasons but fascinating nonetheless. The one by Chan is on the Holy Spirit and the one by Kidder is a biography of Paul Farmer. Expect book reviews of both when I finish.
I just realized I have really, really eclectic tastes. Or weird tastes, take your pick. :-) I am currently reading four books that are wildly different and am enjoying every one of them. I know some people wonder how you can read four at one time and usually I don't. But, these four are so different I can manage. I actually think I am going to curl up in bed with the Braves game on low and go back to reading.
A perfect ending to a perfect day.
