I love to look out the window and see the landscape of our property. My living room is on the second floor of our house, so I can see the grounds from a higher level. I love to sit in my favorite chair near the window. I have a small stool beside me for my tea, or my sewing box. I am often in that chair on my "bad days." Those days when I am physically incapable of doing much. Today is one of those days.
I am weak and overwhelmed and need to have a slower pace today. I will not do much. I need to rest and enjoy a quiet, gentle day with no important activity.
I was planning to bake a cake, but I will have Amy (15) do it for me instead. I am so thankful it is raining. For some reason, it feels nicer to rest on rainy days.
I will do a little sewing, read my Bible and listen to gospel music. Then I will lay down for a long rest this afternoon and into the evening. I will have to just accept a day of being a semi-invalid so I will recover quickly. Perhaps I will be better tomorrow or in a few days? May it be so.
Hope you have a joyous, pleasant day at home!
