Six Word Slice of Life: Take It Easy

(For this month’s Slice of Life Challenge with Two Writing Teachers, I am aiming to do Six Word Slices most days, with some extended slices on other days.)

Context: After a week of mostly over-scheduled days — both in school and beyond school where there was little time to breathe — yesterday was a nice break in the action, a chance to just hang around the house with nothing much to do. Which, of course, is not true, but what had to be done could be done at a leisurely pace. I did some work on report cards (due this coming Friday) and watched NCAA basketball (I am still alive in my pool) and walked the dog (the sun was out for a bit) and dipped into a collaborative song project for a little stretch of time (the song is coming together) and I read (newspaper and books). So, I did stuff, but nothing felt rushed. Which is a nice thing for a Sunday.

Six Word Slice of Life Nothing

Peace (laying back),

  1. I love those kinds of days! And I know what you mean about there is always something more to do, but some days we can be better at doing less. It sounds like a well-deserved lovely day. Good luck finishing report cards- that was me a weekend ago, spending most of my time inputting grades and typing comments.

  2. I enjoy your six word slices with context so much, Kevin. I’m glad you were able to enjoy a more relaxing weekend when nothing felt rushed. A luxury, indeed!

  3. Your six word posts continue to amaze me. A great model for conservation of words.
    Quiet Sundays are what we all need!

  4. We need those days to balance out the rushed feeling we often feel with work and family obligations! Another great six-word post.

  5. Some days are meant for slowing down, Kevin. (An aside, I resurrected one of my old posts and remembered that you created a video post from one of my poems. I credit you in my slice today.)
