Deliciously Lazy

This month I will participate in the Slice of Life Challenge!
My goal is to Write. Share. Give. each & every day of March.

Today has been deliciously lazy. Utterly, fabulously, deliciously lazy.  I slept late and I took a nap. No shame in my game, friends---I needed this.

One of the things I'm trying to be better at is recognizing what my body is trying to tell me, actually listening to it, and then making it happen.  I grew up in a family that was from the never-stop-striving end of the spectrum, which has its merits, but I have found that I must have intentional down time in order to perform at my best.

Today I have made beautiful simple meals for my family.  I have played dolls with daughter-the-youngest, I have laughed heartily with both girls, and I have rested.  WE have rested.  We are not rushing around packing. We are not rushing to get anywhere. We are resting & playing and I am more at peace than I have been in quite a while.

The only plans I've made for tomorrow involve having dinner with a dear friend; some much needed soul-nourishing girlfriend time. 

I have books and journals with empty pages for when the mood strikes.  I have some new honey-lavender tea and a recipe for scones I'd like to try at some point.  My hubby got some movies from the Redbox and we have popcorn at the ready.  

Life is sooooo good.

  5. You've got all the ingredients for a restful, relaxing spring break. Sometimes a staycation is exactly what the whole family needs!
