9 days, 17 hours, 30 minutes

That’s how long I’ll be off from work starting next weekend and running through Thanksgiving to the following weekend.

So what might I do with my time? I have several possibilities:

  • Bingewatch Doom Patrol, Season 3
  • Listen to Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story by Bono
  • Read Paul Newman’s autobiography, The Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Man: A Memoir
  • Watch The Last Movie Stars, documentary about Paul Newman and his wife
  • Continue reading Serge Storms series by Tim Dorsey

I’m also going to see my parents, who live about an hour/hour and a half away, this coming weekend. Update: Wednesday, Nov. 16, yesterday morning, the check engine light plus lights for cruise control and traction control on our 2011 Subaru Outback came on. I took it to the shop and they reset codes but they’re still flashing. Now we have an appointment, but not until after Thanksgiving. At least, it’s driveable for now. 🤞

So I’ll let you know how it all went or how it’s going later, but for now I’ll leave you with these:

  1. I am woefully behind in my blog reading! I am sorry to hear about your car troubles just before the holidays and a planned visit to your parents. 9 days off sounds wonderful; enjoy!


  2. Ah, yes, we’ve been playing musical cars because of various troubles. First, Kiddo’s car sputtered to a halt so we loaned him our old CR-V. Then, husband got a tire issue and had to leave me stranded so he could drive mine to work. Still need to get our old/back-up vehicle back from the kid, whose car (actually, our 20-year-old Camry — we have a “drive them till they drop” philosophy) is back to running.

    Enjoy your time off!!!


  3. That sounds like a nice long time to be off work. I’m pretty sure you will have time to do any of these things that you decide to take on plus visit your parents.

    I’m trying to organize my 2023 reading year. I want to be a little more intentional about the books I read in 2023. I tended this year to let what came in for me at the library guide my reading. I have lots of books in my TBR that I’d try. So I’m trying to schedule in the books I’d really like to read.
