Compared to yesterday, today was such a low-key day. I ate some good food, did a little work, and spent time outdoors with M & m. Nothing too exciting happened, but it was just what I needed.

I’m really starting to appreciate having downtime in my life. Usually, I’m go-go-go all of the time, like the (insane) summer that I had and the past few weeks (e.g. buying a housemoving, marathon training, illness, traveling, finishing my book). Nowadays, I totally welcome simple living.

Breakfast

After sleeping in a little bit, Mal and I made a big Sunday morning breakfast.

We had veggie and Swiss omelets with Hickory Farm sausage and toasted bagels with Apple, Almond, and Cranberry conserves on the side. I also drank an iced coffee with eggnog.

Lunch

I spent the rest of the morning catching up with emails and getting a head start on my blog posts for NuVal next week. Eventually, my stomach started to grumble, so I reheated some leftover collard greens and walnuts for lunch.

I also had a bowl of granola with soy milk. (I later went back for a second bowl. I can never stop at just one!)

After being cooped-up inside all day, Mal and I took Murphy for a long walk in the woods. We were all in the mood for a little exercise.

We walked until the sun set and our hands were freezing cold. A leisurely walk with my boys was a really nice way to end my Sunday. I’m telling ya, simple living is where it’s at! 😉

Dinner is next on the agenda!

  1. I have the hardest time sitting still – even if I’m at home, I’m constantly doing something – cooking, baking, cleaning, laundry… I don’t know why I can’t just sit. I associate it with being lazy for some reasons – it sneeds to stop!! 🙂

  2. This doesn’t have to be unique, you have the ability, job and where with all to live this and share it with those who can’t…you’ve made it to the next level, don’t hold yourself back!

  3. I’ve learned with age that taking and making “down time” is a must in life. It’s amazing what one day or one weekend of just being leisurely can do for your body & soul alike!

    Beautiful shots! Is that right behind your new house?
