Relax

I’ve come to realize my definition of relaxing may be a bit different than others. If you’ve followed my blog very much, you’ve probably figured out that I’m a pretty high energy person.
Saturday, I hit my limit. The energy tank was empty. And in an extremely rare occasion, we had absolutely nothing planned. No games, practices, festivals, meetings, nothing. I even forgot to order Bountiful Baskets. I hated that part, but it was nice having no plans. We walked into town. Taking the shortcut, it’s only two miles. We stopped by a furniture store, the farmer’s market, ate lunch, and visited the pet store (only looking; two black cats are plenty). We even made a stop for a chai latte.
Our trip was 4 miles roundtrip and we still made it back in the early afternoon. My husband and I had an at home date and watched The Book Thief, which is an excellent adaptation of the book. I settled down to write but it was still early, so the four of us played Settlers of Catan. I ended up putting a few words to keyboard before bed.
To some, I’m sure this sounds like a packed day, but truly I have to say it was very relaxing!
