Harry Potter, CHECK!

Well, it's finished.

I've been reading the last Harry Potter book for the past couple of weeks, a chapter or so every day that I could fit it in.

And today I had enough doing-nothing time to sit out in my backyard, enjoy the sunshine and read, read, read.

I finished it!

It was pretty exciting, although it did have some boring parts that could have been left out. And don't read this if you haven't read the book yet and want to be surprised. But it really ended exactly as I thought it would. Which is a bit annoying. I prefer surprises.

But anyway, now I'm done my book and I still have a day left of the long weekend. Which actually is not feeling the most festive or relaxing. But I'm determined to make tomorrow better.

I'm torn: there is lots of work to do on the house. It would put me outside, at least. But it wouldn't be very fun, exactly. But I might actually get to see Alex in between his comings and goings. Or I could just ride my bike somewhere and read a new book... or I could do something else exciting.

I had wanted to do something with the vehicle that I have at my disposal, since I so rarely have a car. But it just didn't turn out that way.

I have been aching for a road trip or a short vacation.

Happily, I may be making up for it in a week or so when I should be going to a conference in BC! Very excited about the prospect! I've been so very anxious lately, just feeling that I need to get away and my head cleared...

I'm so very sad that it's the last weekend of the summer.
