The very best procrastination tool of all…the NAP! Nothing is more delicious than a nap, especially on a rainy chilly afternoon. My best naps are on the sofa, with a book open on my stomach, and a football game droning in the background. Football seems best, the voices on the golf tournament are too annoying and baseball games and soccer have too much yelling. And I don’t do  basketball. Way too loud. 

Napping also works outside on the patio, but the temperature has to  be just right and there can be no mosquitos. Nothing wakes you up like the buzz of a mosquito.

And a good starchy lunch can launch a nap quickly. Or working on my novel can inspire a nap. Which leads to the thought, if my work in process makes me want to nap, I may just have a problem.
