What Is Wrong With Being Idle?

Hello friends, how are you and how has your weekend been?  I have had a really good one.  It has been both relaxing and busy.  You know what I mean?  I had to work yesterday and that is a bit different.  I usually am off on the weekends but I may have mentioned before that one of my mangers has been having some health issues and has been in the hospital and that leaves us a bit short handed.

Anyway, I worked yesterday, Saturday, I was off for a half day on Friday so I did my grocery shopping and errand running then in anticipation of having my Sunday free to do whatever I wanted.

I talked to my sister a couple nights ago and she said the same thing.  ” On Sunday I am not going to do anything work related, I am going to do some things for me, YAY!!!!!  I haven’t talked to her so I am not sure how that went for her.

For some reason I always feel a little guilty when I don’t do anything.  Are you like that?  I feel like I have to be doing “something” productive all the time.  WHAT???   who can do that???

I wonder why we feel like we are only productive when we are busy?  Taking time for us is just as important and productive.   Working on things that may have no end or is just something we love to do is good!!!  Right??

So today I didn’t get up until 7:00 AM which is really unusual for me.  I watched some TV and snuggled with my Scruffy. (See the photo below)  I knitted, I did laundry and I mopped the kitchen.  I also made sure I had some more extra time for me.  That is what a day of rest should be.  Doing something that you like to do. Sometimes being idle is my best way of recharging and getting ready for the week ahead.

Poor Scruffy needs a haircut and he is getting one tomorrow.  Can’t wait!!!  He loves being snuggled in mommy’s arms.  He looks at me so adoringly!!!  I just love him.

I made homemade biscuits and put some fresh strawberries on them.  What a wonderful treat.

I think I had a wonderfully productive, restful day and I enjoyed it thoroughly!!!!!

Always remember

Love your day your way!!!
