I know most weekends, I’m ready for more outdoor adventure especially if it involves the beach but this weekend, it’s a more “stay inside and chill” time.
This past Monday, I actually took the day off. I mean COMPLETELY off. No work (except a small blog post) and watched TV all day. I didn’t crochet, check email, wash dishes, make phone calls – I mean NOTHING – and it was so nice. As I stated earlier in a previous blog post, I really can’t remember doing this in years unless I was very sick and had no choice.
So I decided to make this weekend a partial “do nothing” weekend. I say partial because I’m still writing (trying to finish my newest novel), need some clean clothes so the laundry is going and I have a few other to-do’s that require my attention. But unless I need to go anywhere, it’s pajamas, cozy blankets and finding new movies to watch. Then, of course, there is the Super Bowl on Sunday, which I only watch for the commercials and to pull for the underdog since I’m not a dedicated fan of a certain football team.
I hope you enjoy your weekend as much as I plan to enjoy mine. Maybe you can take the weekend off too. If not the whole weekend, you might be able to carve out a few hours or so. Making that time for self care is so important and I’m learning more about that each day.
PS – Just another reminder of the Live Facebook/Instagram Chat on February 7th at 7pm ET. Can’t wait to share more about my author journey and answer your questions! See you then!
