Going. And not.


Yesterday the weather was sublime.  75 degrees and sunny.  An absolutely perfect day to fill a cooler with food and drinks and load up the car with all varied sorts of water craft.  To take the short drive to the closest lake and hop into the water. Part of me felt that tug.  To go.


But going yesterday would have meant that our family was on the go for seven days straight.  In a month full of school things, soccer things, clogging things, biking things, craft show things.  Too many things.


So instead we stayed home.  And inside.  ::gasp::  And rested.

A family day of rest.  Something we have done for the past couple of years and will continue to do evermore.

Fun! I am looking forward to the day when my kids are old enough to understand the rules of Phase 10. Such a fun game.

I've never played that game, but I do love playing cards. A great family activity. Hey...what's the food? Good for you...staying home and enjoying relaxation.

Staying at home is sometimes the best thing to do. Being on the go isn't always the best. We do the same here. It's nice to just stop and breathe isn't it?!

Sounds wonderful! My son decided he wanted to learn how to play Backgammon--now I must remember how. Turning off the technology is good sometimes.

Oh sounds wonderful, almost as good as a snow day when the whole day is about being outside in the snow playing. Oh I haven't heard of this game, did you all play together?

Happy Sewing

Oh my tease my tummy with a yummy picture......

Yes, days of just not going are wonderful. Please tell my hubby that. I think he has let'sgoitis lately.

Perfect weather has found us, and I'm enjoying it. Hints of fall and that makes me smile until I realize all that still needs to be done before the snow flies.

But until then, I'll do a quiet day, or two, and enjoy them while not fretting about what needs to be done...

And craft perhaps. ;)

Ahhh nothing days...they are the best and in these times of so much busyness we need them. We need to teach our kids how to stop and be still. How to rest and how to relax. Good job!
