slowing down, simple
There's something about being busy that's thrilling.
Collapsing into bed after a long day, the organisation that is demanded, and the challenge of, "How much of this can I actually pull off?!"
And the more I do, and fill my days, the more I seem to accomplish.
There's just no time for procrastinating.
The last few days though, I've pulled the reins a little.
We had our first real taste of summer yesterday, and a promise to the kids for the beach after school found me taking a breather with them by the sea.
No lists, no hurrying from one thing to the next.
Today I helped at school, walked home, baked a cake and hung washing on the line in the spring sunshine.
As much as I love the thrill of the race, and hitting the ground running each morning, I love the simple delights an ordinary day at home can bring.
I think it's important to remind ourselves to take a breather, especially at this time of year, as the silly season approaches.
I hope you had a chance to sneak in a culpa today. Happy Friday lovelies!
