I Took A Day Off...Believe it or not!

I did something I rarely do, I took a whole day off from both jobs and did absolutely nothing but what I wanted to do. And it was amazing.

Yes, I have been quite quiet on this blog, but I have been busy with some cooking and reading. However, have you ever just felt like damn all I do is work and frankly you are tired? Last week I decided since there are no holidays in August, I would take an annual leave day and be still. Originally, I had planned to run an errand and then be in all day. But the night before I prayed and put it in the hands of God, and he saw fit for me to relax yesterday. And I did.

I got up at 7 am and put the garbage can on the street, gotta do that since I live alone. And I came back in and Viggled and texted The Guy to have a great, peaceful and productive day. Then I got back in my bed after making sure the rain of the night before would keep my plants okay. And I slept until 11 am. In fact, I didn’t realize it was so late. My body appreciated me relaxing it for once. I mean seriously, even when I am off on the weekends, I always have something to do and I rarely sleep past 8 am. Plus, I didn’t tell anyone I was going to be off. On purpose.

I got up and put on my washing hair clothes. I had planned to wash my hair on Sunday, but was too lazy to do so, but I knew I could get it done on this one day off. Not only did I wash my hair I also retightened it as well. This took a good portion of the day, but I wasn’t rushed or stressed about doing it. I took my time and in between retightening it and putting it up later on that night, my hair actually dried. Go figure!

I ate leftovers, got myself ready for the week and even managed to bake some cookies for posting in the upcoming weeks. And I still managed to be in the bed at 11 pm. Go me!

This was one of the best days off I have had in a long time. I did what I wanted and didn’t have to include anyone into my plans. My sister couldn’t believe I took off, but I told her I needed some me time. We all need time to relax and allow all the stress of living and worrying and being sucked up in other folk’s chaos to dissipate. I am so glad I allowed God to lead me…can’t go wrong when you do that!

I will be back with recipes and hopefully some randoms by the end of the week. Enjoy the rest of your week, I plan to!
