Slow Days

Slow days ... they add such joy to my life. You know the days I'm talking about. When you can spend extra time doing the things you love. When you can simply sit in your favorite chair just listening to the sounds of the day, stroll outside and enjoy a crisp and sunny day, and mostly, just breathe.

Today is one of those days. It is 73 degrees and beautifully sunny. Peace seems to reign in the house. With 4th grade finished, 5th grade not beginning until September, the house relatively clean, our puppy sleeping, the boy entertaining himself, and a relatively short to-do list, it is a slow day. Exactly what I needed after a couple of challenging weeks. Recovery. Healing. 

I will get a little laundry done today, prepare food, do some work on the laptop, run a quick errand. But overall, it is a wonderfully slow day.

Can you remember the last time you took time to slow down? What do you like to spend your slow days doing?
