One Day Off ~ K.B. Pellegrino

Just what are your plans for the three day weekend coming soon? It’s Presidents Day; but for all of us it is a respite, albeit for one extra day, from the doldrums of the season. I particularly like this quote below which pays attention to the concept of a ‘one’ day off.

“I do not really like vacations. I much prefer an occasional day off when I do not feel like working. When I am confronted with a whole week in which I have nothing to do but enjoy myself I do not know where to begin. To me, enjoyment comes fleetingly and unheralded; I cannot determinedly enjoy myself for a whole week at a time.” ~ Robertson Davies

That is me. I’m right there with Robertson Davies. One day off is bliss. A whole week off is often frightening to me. I have the need to be productive. I believe that it is a particularly American sin, this need to be productive. So on Monday, I will enjoy every aspect of the day even if my only work is to read other murder mystery writers works. I think that there must be one of the American Presidents who might have agreed with me: maybe; possibly; I’m not sure. Oh alright, they probably worked every day even on one day holidays!!!! What about you? Is your one day off blissful?
