Restful Sunday

A nice rainy Sunday, it has been the day we needed, one of rest.  The last few weeks have been busy and at times stressful.  This week there will be more of that, it is just how the cards have played out.
Doctor's appointments for us both, and an overbooked social calendar.  I told Rick last week that there would be no more whines and complaints, because we both must like it or we would stop over committing.     I thought that by now we would be grown up enough to decide to spend our time with people we enjoy, doing things we enjoyed, but some where down the road we lost the memo.

I took a very long nap this afternoon, Taz and I spent a good hour on the sofa snoring.  It was delightful.  If you have not developed the fine art of napping, you are wasting time.  Even science is proving a 20 minute nap makes for more and better productivity and creativity.  Of course our one hour was excessive, but after all it's Sunday.

The rain is monsoonal this evening.  Weather guys are saying an easy 2-3 inches by morning.  The weather had been so beautiful the past few days, it's hard to complain.

This is the last week of April.   Already almost 4 months of 2018 have flown away, graduations and weddings are upon us and Jordan's swim schedule is on our calendar.  May will bring Mother's Day, birthdays and our 44th anniversary...and I thought this year has flown...where did the last 43 go?

Tomorrow seek out someone to be kind to, smile at someone who needs it, and if a hug is appropriate share one of those as well.  Hot tea awaits, enjoy the rest of your Sunday.


  1. I take a nap every day now and I think it's because I'm getting old. I really need that nap to replenish my energy for the rest of the day.

    It's been a delightful sunny warm spring day and I worked outside cleaning part of the driveway of sand and fixing a few patches on the lawn that the snow plow tore off this winter. The crocus are in full bloom.
    Good night.
    Hugs, Julia

  2. I do agree, naps are wonderful. When I worked it was impossible to get one, but now I'm retired I do love them. I always try to make Sunday to rest and relax. We all need one day to recharge our batteries so we're ready for the new week ahead. Hope your Monday is a wonderful one !
