good food, rest, and a quiet walk


Thank you so much for all the "get better" wishes, all your comments brightened my day.
Yesterday was all about taking care of ourselves and taking it easy. It was about healthy comfort food, like poached eggs on a bed of spinach and toast for breakfast and chicken salad open faced sandwiches with sunny squash soup for dinner. It was about sleeping in (thank you sweetie- thank you, thank you, thank you) and it was about taking an easy walk on a trail behind our house. Fresh air, the beauty of nature and time spent as a family...all nourishing and good for the soul.
We are still a bit sick here but I've been making a conscious effort to take things more slowly and to take care of myself and my family.
yesterday I cleared my day of all the commitments that I had made and I slowed down, only doing as much as I felt that I could do. Oh and I took a bath. A lovely hot bath that eased my aching muscles.
I hope that you will remember to take care of yourselves too dear friends. Be kind to yourselves. And visit this post if you haven't seen it already. Very uplifting and beautiful.
