Today felt lazy. It was so needed.
Self care days take on many forms. Sometimes I’m out and about in town, maybe out in nature, or home cleaning. Today I had nothing planned, absolutely nowhere I needed to be. I love these days, they can turn into anything. Sure there are things I need to get done, they will get done, just not today. No one is waiting on me to get these done, today was my day. A day to have fun and be creative.
This morning I went about my routine for non-work days, but then I received a message. Someone was interested in buying a backpack I had listed weeks ago. It has been sitting around for years, unused and stored; it will now be back in its elements. That turned into a trip to the pet store, resulting in a fun afternoon for LP.
Then the rain. The beautiful display pulls me out to the balcony where the rain overpowers the sound of passing traffic. I feel at peace. There is a maple tree in front of my apartment. I love this little maple tree. I have watched it grow and attract so much life through the seasons. Today I appreciated its beauty on this rainy and sunshiny spring day. I love chances like this to experiment with my camera. I took hundreds of photos during the hour of indecisive weather. Trying to determine the best settings and hoping my only battery doesn’t die on me. Don’t worry, it didn’t, and I will just show you 13. I feel good about today. I may have put other things to the side, but today was about living.
