I had a very nice day today. It started off early as most days do in our home – it was probably around 6:30 when we all started stirring.

Gerry took the dogs downstairs and started the coffee and then went outside to get the big Sunday paper. There is not a Sunday that goes by that I’m not thankful for this man who brings me coffee and the Sunday paper in bed. I love the cozy mornings when we have time to drink coffee and read the paper in bed. We share things that we read with one another and I usually tear out some pieces that I want to save for later. Really, it is such a treat!

After church we took the dogs for a walk. It was a beautiful day – the sun was shining and it was near 80 degrees. Gerry was out doing open houses this afternoon and so the dogs and I spent a good deal of time sitting outside soaking up sunshine. I managed to finish the book I was reading and started another. Truth be told, I managed to sneak in a nap as well.

It was a good day. I feel recharged and ready to face the coming week. Thank you God for downtime.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.

  1. Down time is so important in our lives. I also enjoy our weekends when we have little on our calendars and can just sit back and relax–or do those things we enjoy the most.
