What do you do with an afternoon off?

Earlier this week, I delivered a big project that had been in progress since late December. Spent a couple days wrapping up other miscellany and lining up a couple of new things to launch next week, and realized I could close at lunchtime today. It's cold and windy outside, so I'm listening to the Sirius Mardi Gras radio station and getting ready to cook and can some figs. (5-6 gallons in the freezer from last summer that need to be processed)

 

What do you do when you manage to close early?

I cook something elaborate and more time consuming in large quantity so I can fill the freezer with real food in portions for those days I have no time.

 

Or I take dog out to the beach or the mountains. Where I live, it's possible to do both in one afternoon-

 

Or I do absolutely nothing which is delicious too!

I take my unicorn out for a spin.

Garden - at least, I will tomorrow. I have to prune my roses - everything is sprouting - and if I have the energy cut the grass.

I had a big planning meeting with a client in Westwood today, and decided afterwards that I was done for the afternoon. So in the beautiful LA weather of 70 degrees and sunny, I strolled over to the Grove, did some shopping, had some wine, then strolled back home. Some days when I'm done early or need a break, I stroll the other way to the art museum. It's not even a mile walk. Smiley Happy

Slightly off topic- or perhaps not...

 

Seeing Petra's Jaguar reminded me that when I retired from the car repair industry, the very last job I did before handing over my workshop to the new owner was replacing a 2-year-old Jaguar's engine. Here's hoping that Petra gets better mileage from the engine in her car!

I had several friends and neighbors in New Orleans who bought Jaguars.  Apparently, although jungle animals, Jaguars do not flourish in hot, humid climates.  Money pits.  But oh, so beautiful.
