Resting and productivity go hand-in-hand on a “break.” So many things get neglected during the rush of normal life including a certain backyard and a sewing hallway (aka: let’s just dump this HERE for now). Also neglected: true rest.
We contemplated taking a trip this week, but after the last couple of months, I just couldn’t do it. All I wanted to do was be home with no school work to help anyone with and no events to plan for.
Done and done.
Really hoping to do a few fun OKC things this week with the girls, but also hoping to get that sewing hallway back in shape. I made good progress on it today, but am far from finished. I want to make curtains for the kitchen and the school room. I’ve had the fabric for months now, just no time. I won’t let myself start that project until I can see my sewing table. Not quite done on that one yet.
I’ve had clean laundry piling up in my room for a few weeks too. I hate living that way, but that’s the default we’ve had to deal with lately. Finally got it all sorted and put away (or given to the appropriate person to put away) just in time to start another round, but this time I intend to get it put away as it comes out. Good intentions, all that.
We all slept until at least 9:30 this morning and it was beautiful. Thankful for church that doesn’t start until 5pm.
I cleaned out and reorganized the little pantry closet last night, so I have a pretty good idea of what we have and plan to have simple meals all week based on what we already have, with a dinner out here and there.
Normally I like to GO. I like to experience things and go places. But I also know my limits and this semester has brought me right to the edge of them. I know we need rest.
And by golly, I plan to get some.
