Work and Play

Re-reading Little Women (Penguin's utterly charming and very affordable clothbound classics edition).  Today I read this quote from Marmee (who seemed to know everything about everything) and it seemed appropriate as holidays come to a close and work begins again in earnest tomorrow:

Have regular hours for work and play; make each day both useful and pleasant and prove that you understand the worth of time by employing it well. Then youth will be delightful, old age will bring few regrets, and life become a beautiful success.

We certainly looked after the play today... we'll see what work brings tomorrow.
