Day of Decadence

Today, Thursday, I did something I never do.  I did nothing.

I had to meet the shed people early this morning to get started.  It was very cool - around 63F - which here in southern Texas never happens in September.  The RV was inviting and situated as such that I could see how the shed and the stone work was going through a window.

This window happened to be where I could lay in bed and watch.  So I did.  But it was cold in the RV, and I had no pillow, so I grabbed some blankets (from my business stock that were stored on the RV) and made a makeshift pillow, then used my most favorite sunflower blanket to wrap up in.

I drifted off to sleep watching the wind move through the trees and hearing the generator hum.

When I woke, I was hungry, so I went for a burger and came back.  I dozed in and out the entire afternoon in that RV.  At times I was awake and let my mind drift and honestly, I cannot even tell you what I thought about - I was so in and out of sleep and drowsy feeling.

It was pure BLISS!

This was exactly the kind of day I needed.  I only had my cell phone and did not look up anything or spend time on Facebook.  I texted with my sister a bit.  Sent pictures of the build to my husband.

I stayed away from Harvey posts and political crap.  I did not think about money, work, homeschool or the build other than what was happening right then.

It was the best kind of day.  With all the sleep, you would think I could not sleep tonight, but I am tired and really for rest.  It was like my brain and body just repaired themselves today, tonight's rest is the true rest.

That is something I have not had in a very, very, long time.

Grateful:  I am grateful for today, in its delicious decadence of nothing and allowing my brain to reach full stop.  No one could ask for more than that!


  1. Sounds like a very needed day! So happy you got a chance to recharge. :-)

  2. Nice! glad you got a break to recharge

  3. After a stressful period, I am prone to spend a day like that. Yes, sleep is still needed. You probably got your body all set for sleep. It sounds like a wonderful day away from all the ordinary things we find to do. I like the sound of the sunflower blanket.

    1. My best friend gave me that blanket when we were around 21 years old. Just does not remember, but it is my go to blanket anytime I am cold.

      I talked to my husband about it and we are still going to our weekends away when we get settled. It gets us all away from the internet and out of the grind. We all need it. The RV lets us get away for about $60.
