Last day of my ‘holiday at home’

Brisk Walk

On the eve of going back to work, I wanted to fit in as much as I could into today. I was up early listening to a meditation track, then had a whole hour of writing time. Just as everyone was getting up I went out on a thirty minute brisk walk.

It was fantastic outside; there was a cold bite to the air at first, which made me go back for my gloves and hat, but the glimse of the sun made up for it! There was hardly anyone about and it was so peaceful. On returning home one of my daughters said “I don’t like it when you go out for a walk as you smell of outside (whatever that means).

Anyway, I did a large jigsaw with the girls for the rest of the morning and it was lovely just chatting to them (something I will miss tomorrow!). It’s amazing that I’ve actually got time in the day to type this up, but as I was about to mop the floors they insisted that mopping was something they have been wanting to do for ages! It didn’t take much to persuade me to hand over the mop in exchange for some blogging time!

It’s been great spending time with them over the last ten days and I wish it didn’t have to end – oh well back to work tomorrow. Roll on the weekend…

Until next time…

    I have a 17 year old and this comment “On returning home one of my daughters said “I don’t like it when you go out for a walk as you smell of outside (whatever that means).” I agree, what are they thinking, there is nothing better than fresh outside air and a brisk walk. Bravo for you…something I plan to do this summer…Chicago weather was so nice that I did some outside work as well today. Go figure now I have energy. LOL
    And you do puzzles? You have the patience of a saint! I just don’t do them, is there some type of secret to doing them or getting fond of them? That I have no clue at age 45 none the less. LOL
    Yes, enjoy today and each moment, they (kids) are so precious..and grow so fast. With work and all coming tomorrow, I pray you stay healthy and well and know that all you do for the family matters! ~Jackie

    • Hi Jackie
      I’ve just realised that I never replied to your comment. I don’t do puzzles very often as if I have spare time I prefer to write; however, I went with what my daughters wanted to do that particular day and they were so happy and I actually enjoyed it. It’s quite therapeutic and with the size of the puzzles they are doing at the moment (we’re not quite onto the 1000 pieces yet!) it’s done in no time.
      Take care
