The Lead Up

I love commuting on the week leading up to a holiday. Especially when the kids are already out of school. The streets of my neighborhood are quiet, there's always a seat on the train, and there are fewer elbows in every station as the week wears on.
Since I always have Fridays off I could choose whether to take Thursday or Monday and I went with Monday. It didn't really occur to me that everyone would be getting tomorrow off so today would be like a pre-holiday Friday. I've got a messenger package languishing at the station because offices were closed at times I really didn't expect.
I'm not headed out of town. I'm headed to dinner. I'll have a full, normal (for me) Friday tomorrow and I'll spend my three day weekend relishing the empty streets. I like spending holiday time in the city, it's like everyone just moved to the side so I could pass. Not because I smell or anything, just because it's the nice thing to do.
Travel safely, my friends, and celebrate well.

  1. I was actually able to get a lot of work done on Thursday because everyone else headed out early for the holiday weekend. I love the quiet time.

    Oh, and that sky picture you have on here today? Love. It. I love the cloudy sky.
