A Day of Rest...Kind of

I have declared today to be a day of rest. We have been going nonstop for the past few weeks, and last night I crashed. Literally. I fell into bed at 9:30 p.m. If you know me at all, you know that an early bedtime is incredibly unusual for me. I tend to stay up very late. I always have. But last night, my body told me that it needed to get horizontal. So I listened. Thankfully, my sweet child slept all the way through the night and only woke up when I went to get her at 9 this morning. We ate breakfast together and played for a bit, but when naptime rolled around, I got her settled and crawled back into bed myself.

For two more hours.

I feel much better now.

Now it's naptime {again}, and I've managed to clean the bathroom and take out the trash. It may sound kind of crazy, but it was a relaxing activity. I've been so busy with Senojal Designs lately that I've let housework slide. Finally tackling the ring around the bathtub gave me a sense of accomplishment. Thank goodness that I finally eradicated it. Now I can actually soak in the tub without worrying that I'll catch some kind of communicable disease.

I don't have much more on the agenda today. When Micah wakes up, we'll play for a while, and I'll cook supper, and we'll have some family time before it's time for bed again.

It hasn't been a very exciting day, but it's been a good day. Everyone needs a day of rest sometimes. How do you relax??

Until next time, grace and peace.
