vegan vacation


Today Foodie Vegan is taking a day off, and I think you should take time to think about taking sometime for yourself too. Let your hair down, relieve yourself of a few duties, and be "at leisure." We all need it every once in a while...
 
vacation (taken from etymonline.com)
late 14c., "freedom or release" (from some activity or occupation), from O.Fr. vacation, from L. vacationem (nom. vacatio) "leisure, a being free from duty," from vacare "be empty, free, or at leisure." Meaning "formal suspension of activity" (in ref. to schools, courts, etc.) is recorded from c.1456. As the U.S. equivalent of what in Britain is called a "holiday," it is attested from 1878.
 
 Have a great weekend!!
