Relaxation

reading

The evenings are beginning to be warm enough to enjoy our screen house now.

I curled up in the papasan chair with my Oprah magazine last night. With the sun on my back, the warm breeze, and the sounds of the birds, it was a moment of pure relaxation.

Sitting

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.
