14-Day Blogging Challenge: Day 10
“What Do You Do?”
Let’s say I’m taking the day off, and I have nothing scheduled, no responsibilities, and no one else to take care of. What do I do?
I would begin my day, stretching and say:
Good morning world 🙂 Thoughts fluttering about, thinking about the day, nothing scheduled, no responsibilities, everyone I care for is being looked after, and well cared for today. What do I do?
I would do some yoga, then meditate.
I would have my drink of hot water with freshly squeezed lemon, maybe a little maple syrup if I wanted it sweetened.
On a nice cool day, I would walk barefoot into my garden. Relax on my patio with our dog, Sadie, by my side, sitting in the shade of the grape vines growing over the pergola and under the more than 80 year pine trees enjoying the coolness they bring.
Filling the birdbaths, and basins with water. Watching the birds, squirrels, rabbits, and chipmunks.
Keeping a glass of water for me, to drink, by my side.
I would relax and read the paper or a magazine. Having my camera nearby, I would go for it to catch some photos of the beautiful day, the flowers, shrubs, and the animals I see in the garden today.
Returning inside, I would whip up a smoothey.
Or, maybe, cooked steel rolled oats with almonds, raisins, and a bit of honey. A cup of tea or freshly brewed coffee.
I would gather the greens and crunchies, for preparing a lunch salad.
Making some calls, or going on-line, I would visit with family and friends.
An afternoon out, to see an early movie.
A late afternoon, stretched out, getting a massage.
A dinner of fish, baked potatoe, and vegetable, asparagus sounds wonderful to me. And a nice cup of herbal tea.
An evening of knitting, crochet, or quilting would be a delight for me.
Reflecting on the day with appreciation, heading off to sleep.
So let’s say you’re taking the day off, and you have nothing scheduled, no responsibilities, and no one else to take care of. What do you do?
