Do Nothing Day
Finally the cooler temperatures have arrived and I'm in my glory. Yesterday I switched the summer comforter to the winter comforter feeling completely confident that the heat of the summer is over and done with. I hope so! I loved the rainy drizzly day and the excuse to stay home.
I had a pressing week where I felt stressed with all of the tasks that were before me. Yesterday I had a 'do nothing' day.
But you see my do nothing day is doing what I choose to do! I stayed home and strategically plotted out what I wanted to focus on. Of course I did some pesky chores like laundry and cooking dinner. I also made space for some walking around the yard and taking photos. Enjoying the drizzle and wearing a jacket.
I made space for lots of reading and knitting. When I needed to stretch which is important to do every hour if you want to be able to knit more, I focused on drawing, sketching and journaling.
Frodo and I walked about the yard once more.
Throughout my do nothing day was silence. No TV, no music, no podcasts - just me and my thoughts. I'm energized by quiet days and creativity flows freely.
I know I am lucky to have this kind of day and I treasure them. Last year with the babysitting being twice a week, I didn't have any days where I could stay home all day long. Now that I'm one day a week babysitting, I have this luxury.
In other news, I finished knitting my gradient shawl and it's soaking as I write this post.

I have yet to share any of my artwork since I'm doing a ton of experimenting with ink and watercolor my critical voice is loud and so I keep it private.
If you had a do nothing day, what would you do?
