The creeping crud is creeping around here. The Kid has missed two days of school. I’m just starting to get a little stuffy. The Climbing Daddy has been coughing a bit.
This afternoon, The Kid and I needed something a little different. So we took coloring sheets and colored pencils out back on the porch, sat in the sun, and colored for half an hour.
Half an hour outside in the sun, unplugged, relaxing, together.
Good for the heart, mind, body.
I’m not in a regular habit of relaxing like that, and I know many others aren’t, either.
Take some time to recharge. You’ll feel better. You’ll be a better mom/spouse/friend/employee.
