Peach State says: Downtime Day

Boy did I need a day like this…well at least a morning like this. I opened the door this morning to let “Precious Princess”, aka…my dog and shadow, out for her morning duties. The air was heavy and, as my eyes began to focus, I could see a blanket of moisture on the various surfaces.
I looked toward the streetlight to see gentle drops of rain falling as a slight breeze swept through the falling leaves. Just what the doctor ordered…a Downtime Day!

Well at least part of the day! I will busy myself with cleaning and planning the menus for today and tomorrow due to extra activities on the schedule.

Today I will attend the funeral of a sweet spirit and musician at 4 PM
Tomorrow I have an all day Beth Moore Simulcast event!

I will take care of my daily challenges and chores with routine diligence and refill my coffee as needed. “I am still playing catch-up on the lattes!” I will take it slow…due to doctors orders and the view outside my window with definitely help with this. Today would be a great fuzzy-sock-curl-up-with-a-book kinda day but…the duvet cover needs to be changed out and I need to organize a few things…like the pantry, office, dinning room. “The boys have been generously helping in the house-hold maintenance and I can barely get into the pantry much less the folded laundry that belongs to the boys on the dinning room table.” I guess there are things to still be learned about how to put things away.

Today is just what I needed…Downtime Day …we all need time to catch-up. Don’t you agree?

Have another cup and think about it…and…Have a great day!

About justbetweencousins

We are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.
