The Blessing of Being Lazy

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe have had a lazy weekend at home and it’s been great!  It is exactly what we have needed so it is our true blessing of being lazy.

For the past few weeks, we have all been fighting coughs, headaches and sinus drainage.  Not at all fun.  It seems to be taking forever to get over this crud.  Lazy time is great and just the ticket.

Friday night we vegged out after getting Ian from school, Saturday we watched some Christmas movies, did a little bit of work around the house, read our library books, Ian played a lot, and we ate dinner from the crock pot.  The pork chops cooked for about 6 hours, and we also had green beans and mashed potatoes. Delicious.

Today was church and then lunch at home, and another lazy afternoon of more Christmas movies, preparing lists, and deciding on info for the Christmas card, and more reading.  And, some time for exercise and a nap on the couch.

I have to say that this will be the only weekend this month devoted to laziness and being at home.  The rest of the time we will be busy with activities and spending time with family and friends.  I have loved each minute of our laziness.

Tomorrow is back to school and work and our normal routine.  And we have a cub scout outing tomorrow night.  We are ready and rested and for that I am truly thankful and blessed!

Today I am thankful for:

  • Hugs and lots of cuddles
  • Praying before a meal with my guys
  • Spending Saturday in our pajamas
  • Making lists and checking them twice
  • Cooking breakfast and watching our favorite shows on a lazy Saturday morning
  • Working on our Christmas card
  • Christmas movies
  • Popcorn and hot chocolate
  • Christmas music at church
  • Lighting another candle on the advent wreath
  • Christmas tree lights
  • Peppermint sticks
  • Naps on the couch
  • Warm blankets
  • Plenty of drinks

I wonder if I will have time to rest as this busy month continues?  I hope we can but doubt there will be much time as there has been this weekend.
