Snowy weather with a forecast of freezing rain: It’s the perfect excuse to sit by the fireplace in my pjs with a good book.
It is the perfect excuse to have a lazy day.
Sitting down can be a welcome relief.
As I often do in the evening, I grabbed my book, a few cushions, and a throw and tucked into the couch for an hour of quiet. This is all the more satisfying knowing I have had a productive day: The final coat on the doors is done, more deck has been stained, and the house is slowly returning to a state of order (having two little tornadoes living in the house wreaks havoc on order!).
In the morning, more things will need to be done. But for now, I enjoy the simple joy of sitting.
