Yesterday was my day off and I had much yard work to do. Before I went outside I was reading an article about spending a day just doing whatever you want to do. Do you ever do that, spend a day just doing whatever you feel like doing at the moment?
I do not usually do that. I feel like I have too many obligations and responsibilities to deal with. However if it is a beautiful day then I want to be outside. Yesterday I spent the day outside sweeping the decks, raking pine needles and sweeping the driveway.
I stopped to have lunch and asked my son if he would like to go down to the tide pools. We spent an hour looking at the tide pools and walking along the shore. Then my son wanted ice cream so we went into town and had a delicious scoop of Doc Burnstein ice cream.
When we got back I continued with the yard work. It was after 5pm when I finished and I felt very productive while at the same time it was nice to have a little break in the middle of the day to spend with my son. So on my day off I may not have done exactly what I wanted to do but I did work that needed to be done and at the same time I was able to spend some quality time with my son.
Maybe next time when I have the day off I could just lie in the sun and have a handsome man bring with a drink with an umbrella in it.:) I can dream can’t I?
