Creating & living a truly authentic life,
living in "Our Little House In The Big Woods". Raising many children,
working in the arts, writing, film making,
learning to create quilts, painting, exploring gardening, traveling, restoring a vintage
dollhouse, hunting for antique treasures
& chasing our big dream to live by
the sea, all on a thrifty, frugal budget.
June 9, 2013
After a very full week, with activities that included meetings, groups, strategic plans, financial duties, training, writing, negotiations, lots of physical gardening & family time, I am so very thankful for a day off, a day to laze around & do nothing. The house is clean, the laundry amounts to only one small load later today, the recycling is done, the fridge clean & the gardening, well, we're ahead of the game there.
Dh is filming today but with the rain that continues to fall, lightly but still there, I'm not sure how long the shoot will take today. Hopefully, he'll be in for dinner. My girls & grandson have gone out to do some shopping & all the puppies are sleeping. It's just me, the tv & my computer. I feel sooooooo lazy but know by the end of the day, I'll have my schedule worked out for the next few weeks, I'll have some writing I've been meaning to do caught up, I'll have our grocery/menu list created for the week, I'll have our banking sorted for the week, I'll have a spreadsheet of the things we want to accomplish over the summer started & I'll have our trip spreadsheet with all the things we need to do before the 28th finished. From the outside, it looks lazy, but reality is, my body gets to rest in a comfy spot, while the rain falls outside & I get the "paperwork" part of life all organized.
What do you like to do on
days off like this? Do you feel guilty & try to fill it up with activity? Or let it happen as it needs to, taking in whatever comes your way?
