I stay up later and on my days off, sleep longer.
GG's classes don't start until the 24th of the month and we have time for home projects. Cleaning out the attic and making a BIG run to Goodwill. Decorating the newly painted bedroom and hallway.
Time to spend with friends, usually around the table eating.
Time to see movies, read more books, post more blog entries, daydream, nap and just breathe.
Last night one of our dinner guests told me I looked relaxed. NOBODY ever says this , usually they tell me I look tired.
So the days are short ( but they're getting longer daily) and the weather's cold ( remember spring will hit here in two months people) the fact that I look, and feel rested is worth it all to me.
Last night's dinner with good friends was another gift in itself, we got good company and a dozen eggs from their farm and they got salmon smoked by GG's father and the roast.
From the sounds of our meals these days and the comments you all have been leaving perhaps a little gym time this month would also be in order?
