I had someone tell me recently that I need to take a lazy day. What?! A lazy day? Hmmm…I think I remember those.
Anyway, at the time, I remember thinking that a good day off — lazing around, reading, napping in a cuddle puddle with the dogs, taking my camera out for a walk to see what I can see — sounded exactly like what I longed for but had no time to even pencil it in. Well, somewhat against my wishes, I am having a lazy day.
The rain has returned today. Ok. It was here on Friday, too, but I still did tons of “have to” stuff so it was not a lazy day. Today…well, today is passing as quickly as it came and I have not gotten a single “have to” thing done.
The timing is good, though. I have been feeling a bipolar crash coming and this lazy day is one way to help keep that from happening. Now, if I could just get my head to join in on this lazing about, the day would be great!
Do you ever have those days? It would be a glorious lazy day if you could just get your head (I like to call it the Committee) to just stop pestering you with all of those other things that could be done? Laying down for that cuddle puddle nap, getting right to the edge of sleep, only to have the Committee start listing off the numerous things that could be done?
One of the things the Committee has been pestering me about is this blog. “Write a post, write a post, its been a few days or so since you’ve written a post.” Ugh!!! Fine!
So, here I am. There are so many things I could be writing about, but a lazy day seemed to be the most pressing. Or perhaps I really needed one less thing for the Committee to be chattering about in hopes of actually getting to take that nap before its bedtime.
What does a lazy day look like to you? Is it a day of lazily accomplishing all of those home-tasks that haven’t gotten done because of being to busy with work? Is it napping and reading? I’d love to hear how other people spend their lazy days. Maybe it will help me learn how to enjoy them more. 😉
