taking time for ourselves, huh?
something that many people, i suspect, don't really do. for me, 15 or 20 minutes without interruption is spent well with a book, curled up on my bed. i have my favorite authors, who doesn't? and so i wanted some time to find those authors again. and experience the special magic they bring.
mzb is one of my fave authors of all times. her amazing book, The Mists of Avalon, was my first experience with her, and I've since spent many hours enchanted by her words. i refresh myself with her tales quite often.
another way to bring myself back and take time for me is by playing with this Big Dog of mine. seriously, this boy has captured a part of my heart and is returning it in a Big Way. What can better than the unconditional love of a four footed, furry piece of goofiness and sweetness?
yes, we had a snow day this week. wednesday, actually. So not only did i play with Big Dog in the snow, but I also took time out to play in the snow with my babies. who really aren't babies anymore!
seriously, building a snowkitty (cuz erin is obsessed with all things kitty) with my kiddos brought me back to my own childhood and playing in the snow with my sibs and friends....
and speaking of sibs, tonight I'll be spending time with my sister at our local honky tonk. i can't wait!
