883




Today I took time for myself.  3.5 hours of me time and whatever I felt like doing.  There was book reading, I LOVE Murakami and his latest book I only put down when the sheer weight of it overwhelms me.  I finished piecing a quilt top for another friend's babe due in only 4 weeks.  I picked about a third of our remaining basil and made it into pesto.

It felt like a glorious indulgence.

Sounds like the perfect way to spend a few hours by oneself. I did it just the other week, it was so nice but a little strange too just being able to do what you want. Thank you for your thoughtful comments on my blog today. xx

What a lovely way to spend some precious "you time". That quilt top is divine and that basil is so plentiful - a third of what's left? Lucky you. Enjoy the pesto. x

I agree, it sounds like a lovely way to spend a little time for yourself. I hope you get more of these moments. It does relieve a lot of stress, gives you time to take a deep, deep breathe.

Good for you! It looks like 3.5 hours well spent.

OH lovely lovely lovely!

I wish my basil crop did as well as yours...

I wish I was as obedient as you and let myself have these times rather than eel guilt ad do everything but...

Your basil is so healthy looking. When we lived in Melbourne everything grew so much better than here in Queensland. I wonder if it's just me?

Glad you got this downtime and feel so good about it. I have been celebrating this time of late, I realised I don't just want to have time when I'm elderly but to love it now when I'm deep in thought about so many things.

Have a great week!
