My #FavouriteThing today was surprising myself by choosing to take the day off. I have been working really hard at BSchool and all things webby all week long. And really, I had planned to work hard all day today too. I had no kids this weekend, after all. But as the day dawned (at the crack of noon) and I got up to do hair and makeup for Kid #3’s dance competition, I started thinking differently. It’s worth taking one day off each week, making it sacred in whatever way makes sense to you…replenishing. And so I did. I treated myself to a booster juice. I took myself for a run, all by myself with my audiobook. I thought about calling a friend to see if she wanted to run together…but what I really wanted was the solitude and joy of moving my body, out in nature, with only my book for company. So that’s what I did. And then I puttered: I did groceries, ran a couple of errands, tidied and decluttered one or two areas in my house that have been bugging me, made a really yummy pasta with prawns in a butter sauce with garlic and basil and grainy mustard, watched a movie…and never turned my computer on. Just relaxed and regenerated, and totally gave myself permission to do so. And I’m putting myself to bed early – tomorrow is going to be a very long day.
