Yesterday, working in the garden, I began to think about vacation -- specifically, about how little of it I've scheduled for the year (6 days in September). Since I'm self-employed, and I don't yet have any passive income going from this business, if I don't work, I don't eat, so to speak. Plus I work at home, so the lines between work and, well, not work are pretty blurry. I try to have one day a week on which I do no 'work' -- though that mostly means I cook and work in the garden. Maybe I sit and read for an hour or two. This morning I read this:

Maybe I really should schedule another week!
