Happy Thursday! As usual, I climbed out of bed with two out of the three kids hollering for their morning ‘coffee’, which consists of warm milk and a teaspoon of creamer :). They are quite addicted to it these days. Then I got everyone ready, Anika went to school, took Emma to preschool, then Noah and I loaded up all of our recycle to turn it in, and a few other errands. Today was nothing special and out of the ordinary…until quiet time came….
The weather has been unusually gorgeous for this time of year around here, and amazingly both Noah and Emma fell asleep. So I threw on some old shorts and a tank top, grabbed a cool drink and a girlie book and snuck out onto the back deck to catch up on my Vitamin D. The normal part of me had to resist using this time for cleaning or catching up on things that needed to be done. I managed to stay out in that glorious sun for a whole hour before Anika came home and the Little’s woke up. I am so glad that I seized the opportunity when it was available. Too often we just keep going and going and don’t slow down to enjoy the little things in life, and relaxing in the sun is definitely one of them! Make sure you steal a little time to yourself every week when possible!
