This weekend I stayed home.
I was so tired after the first two weeks of the school term
that I just couldn't think or be creative because my brain
was so tired and my body was too!
I spent quality time lying on the sofa drinking cups of tea and
eating Griffins Gingernuts (there are no other kinds)
I vacuumed the house, cleaned the bathrooms
and sorted the kitchen drawers.
I lay on the sofa and admired the light coming in the windows.
I hung more things on the walls.
I opened all the windows and doors and let the fresh air in.
I baked a cake.
And then ate a piece warm from the oven with ice cream.
And then I lay on the sofa some more.
It was just what I needed.
This morning when we got up,
the lunches were made, the dishes were done
and we got out the door with the minimum of fuss.
Here's to a quiet weekend, it makes a great start to the week!
