is that a rose I smell?

1. a respite or a time of respite from something
2. a scheduled period during which activity is suspended
3. a period of exemption from work
4. a period spent away from home or business in travel or recreation

Synonyms: breathing space, fiesta, furlough, gone fishing, holiday, intermission, layoff, leave, liberty, long weekend, recess, recreation, respite, rest, sabbatical, spell, time off.

Antonyms: work

Usage: Yippee! I'm on vacation!

Master Plan for the next ten days: swim, read, relax, wander, stop to smell the roses, write, relax, garden, wine, dine, did I mention relax? (And blog about it, of course.)

Not forgotten...t'was implied in "wander". (One must keep some surprises in reserve, no?)
