Lazy Sunday Morning!

Don't you just love a lazy Sunday morning? This whole weekend has been rather lazy! I love it! We've spent the past many, many weekends going to christenings, showers, birthday parties etc... AAAAHHHH finally a weekend to do nothing. Yesterday as you know I worked on changing the layout of this blog while all the men in the house went to the homecoming game at the High School (we lost :() and then we all went for chinese food for dinner. This morning I woke up around 8:15. Chatted with husband for a bit. He got up and went to the living room to watch the Formula 1 race with older son Michael. I pulled the covers over my head for another half hour. I peeked my head out of the covers and grabbed the laptop to have a look around the blog world for a little while. I got up for about 10 minutes to make coffee and grab a bowl of cereal and then headed back to bed. Sitting up in bed with my cereal and coffee, I turned on the television and flipped around there for a while. Then I called my mom to talk to her for about an hour. Then my husband came back to bed for another chat, followed by daughter Marissa and then middle son Mark. Before you know it all 5 of us were hanging out in our room (kids to big to hop into bed) having a nice chat. I'm getting up now! At 12:15! I sent my husband out for the paper, so I could get the coupons to go grocery shopping. While he's out, I'll jump in the shower. I do need to go grocery shopping. I will at least do that today. But sometimes we all need to just relax and do nothing.
Here is today's affirmation: "Life is simple and easy. All that I need to know at any given moment is revealed to me. I trust myself and I trust life. All is well."

I think the affirmation speaks for itself. Sometimes we just need to relax and reset our clocks.
When was the last time you spent some time to yourself and relax?

I did try this on the weekend but I ended up quite busy. I did get a sleep in though so I enjoyed that. And I got to read some more of a great book I am reading, 'The Answer' by John Assaraf. I am quite lucky in that my life is relatively quiet but there are times when it gets a bit beyond a joke and a nice siesta is just what the doctor ordered. I did have a great relaxing day the other day curled up watching girly movies for the day. Sometimes it is necessary to recharge.

Mmmmmm ... to sleep in or take a nap on a Sunday afternoon ... pure pleasure.

Last year I started a "Positive Thoughts" journal. I try to write in it at least once a day. One of my first entries was slow Sundays ... waking up slow, slowly enjoying a cup of coffee while I watch the birds on my patio ... generally just easing into the day ... until I'm wide awake ... at which point it's usually time for a nap. :)

Take Care!
