We are going to a holiday event at my brother-in-law's home. It will be nice that it is over with before the rest of the holiday. It seems to always be associated with too much drama. It is definitely not a "special event pipe smoking" session.
Saturday was successful in regards to my efforts. It was more of a struggle than most other days (as I had expected, since I had not been very successful on Saturdays to begin with). In thinking through the day, I think that I understand more why it was challenging. I tend to have a lot of idle time on Saturday and I had typically filled much if not all of this idle time by smoking my pipe. It was regularly one of my highest consumption days each week. Sometimes my idleness would be just relaxing around the house, sometimes it would be waiting for one or more family members to arrive/get ready to go/get going/ or prepare to do something or other that would give me the "wait time". In most every circumstance, my trusty companion, my briar pipe and pipe tobacco would come out to help me wile away the time. I must admit I do miss that. And, I know that until January 3rd, I will have that sort of idle time, frequently. So, I must keep thinking of my strategy for these times.
Today's (Sunday's) Goal = 0
Yesterday's (Saturday's) Goal = 0 bowls
Actual consumption (Saturday) = 0 bowls
