For the first time in some number of months (I honestly can't recall how long it's been), I took the majority of a day off. Then I pushed things to a whole new level, probably not attempted in years, and took the majority of a second day off! Granted, there was some studio work done as well as a noteworthy amount of behind-the-scenes cleanup & general overhead, plus plenty of non-brick-related activities, but all things are relative, after all. Relative to the well-established norm, I had myself a real slacker of a weekend, and what's more of a surprise is that I don't feel too guilty about it. It's not that I needed any extra R&R -- I rather enjoy being continuously productive and do work well under pressure -- the pieces just happened to fall into place, and I went with it.
It felt... neat. Perhaps I can try it on a regular basis. Once every 3-4 months sounds reasonable, I think?
