Day off? Yep, I’m doing it!

I love the Angelou quote. It is perfect for the post. Taking good care of ourselves and loving ourselves is always important all of the time, but especially at this time of the year. Hugs, Barbara

“Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.” ~  Maya Angelou

It’s my busiest time of year, and somehow I seem to have gone from quietly recovering from surgery to rocketing ahead again.

Which is wonderful.

But today I need to stop.

I need to hold my husband’s hand and spend time with him.

I want to think about Christmas, do a little cooking and a little cleaning, wrap a few gifts.

I’m going to nap. Maybe even twice.

This afternoon I’ll go play in the vegetable garden for a while.

Have a simple home-cooked dinner and watch a DVD.

Enjoy an early night.

I hope you get some quiet time today too.

Much love, Nicole ❤ xx
