That's what we've been doing.
Hubby and I have been off since Christmas Eve. No work, no major household projects, no obligations. And it's been very nice.
It's not often that we relax. In fact, we chuckle about how much seating we have in the house and how little we sit. Hubby works long hours and when he's not working we're usually diving into some kind of home improvement adventure. It's what we do. We've been doing it for years.
But this little home vacation was different. We sat a lot. And we dined out a few times. We visited with friends and family. I fiddled around in my sewing room, organizing fabric and tidying things up for a fresh start to the new year.
We cooked a little, and spent some time browsing in our favorite bookstore. We had breakfast yesterday morning with our son, and took a brisk walk in the park today.
We watched two movies, one in the theater and one snuggled in the comfort of our home (my favorite way to watch a movie). And I knitted.
It's a wonderful thing :: this relaxing and recharging. It's new to us but I do believe we did it quite well. I think we may be on to something.
