Beautiful Things

Le massage huile sur toileImage via WikipediaYeah yeah yeah.  I am a day late again.  And I even had a reminder come up.  Just got too busy paying bills.  Now I just need to find the time to go grocery shopping.

1.  The look on my massage therapist's face when I gave her a necklace that I made for her.  I haven't been able to tip her lately but I wanted to do something special for her.

2.  A day spent at Wild Waves.  Saje wasn't able to ride any of the rides due to having surgery on his chest but it was great spending time with one of my best friends and her kids.  Oh and her mother which is cool because I like her mother.

3.  I think that summer is finally really here.  I wonder/hope that it will really linger around.  I mean seriously it took until almost the end of July for us to get a solid week where the weather was above 70 degrees.

Sleep On ComputersImage via WikipediaEver have one of those days where you just can't seem to wake up?  Not that you can't get up and function but more along the lines of the brain never becoming fully alert.  Today was one of those days for me.

I know why.  I haven't had any downtime for the last week or so and that really wears on me.  And I really hate not having a day to sleep in.  Yeah I know that I am whining and if I had kids, I would never had a day to sleep in.  Anyways, I did manage to get up and take a friend to court about 45 miles from here.  And I did go get my massage.  Those were my goals for the day with the exception of catching up on email and blogs.

Well it didn't quite work that way.  I got home around 1 to find the hubby resting his mind by playing a video game which meant that I didn't need to entertain him.  I grabbed my podcast and planned to kick back in my recliner to take an hour nap.  I don't think that I really slept very long at one time but I did manage to drowse until about 6. 

And my mind is just becoming active about 7 pm.  All in time to blog a bit and then go back to bed.

Do you ever have days where your body/mind just demands that downtime?  And what do you do if you aren't able to comply?

I have always really love dragonflies.  Must be because they symbolize change.  I really used to crave the chaos that change brings though I have noticed that as I get older I seem to require less change.  Heck when I was younger I couldn't live the same house for then 6 months.  It was great.  I got to sort thru everything twice a year.  Needless to say, I wasn't a pack rat then and once I got into beading that changed.  Now I never know what I might find.  Well anyways I was playing around looking at some dragonfly offerings  that I like and wanted to share.
