Intended path (and my best video so far)

Oh, thank goodness. I have, for the first time in quite a long time, got a free weekend. I don't have to travel anywhere. I don't have to do anything.

Of course, there are lots of things I should be doing. I've got a ton of catching up to do on a multitude of things. Thankfully not so much as I could have: when Thursday night came around, I knew that giving up Greek for the year was the right decision. I just couldn't have faced the extra input of more Stuff To Do.

So, here's the plan: tomorrow, I'm going to do... nothing. Well, if I feel like it I may tidy up the flat in a desultory fashion, but apart from dragging myself up to Clifton Village or along to the Watershed for lunch, that's the most energy I'm going to spend. I'll get out of bed when I feel like it, and busk it from there.

I'm committing to that in advance to avoid the "I should be doing stuff" guilt that can sometimes arrive when you have some free time.

Sunday, I will catch up on my mail, go through other incoming electronic stuff, and the file of paper cruft, and get myself back to zero. I won't necessarily do anything, just make sure everything I need to do is captured in the right place. Then I might catch a film somewhere, or go see what the new Oppo Comedy Night (no longer at Oppo, confusingly, since they've closed) is like.

Then, next week, I might actually have some energy in the evenings for Getting Stuff Done.

So, there we are.

In other news, on Tuesday night I took some video on the way home, and on Wednesday night produced the best little video I've made with my new Zi6 so far, I think. Here 'tis. Only 34 seconds long, by the way.

That is EXTREMELY cool.

As was I when I'd finished filming it. It was done on the spur of the moment, without a tripod, so I had to hold the camera on the front of the boat for about fifteen minutes. Brrr!

*hugs* I think I know what you mean. I spent last weekend watching an entire series of something I'd been meaning to watch - didn't get me anywhere in practical terms, but made me feel like batteries had been recharged. There's only so much time you can spend in To-Do List mode, I think...

Yes indeedy. And you need to be able to give yourself permission to slack off in order to truly enjoy the slacking off :)
