A Gift of a Tuesday

I am so busy at work. Most of my days are a whirlwind and I leave each day reminding myself of what I did not accomplish. Secretly I had been longing for a "personal" day off to clean, read, make lists, but felt that it would just put me further behind at work. My day off came today though in the form of a fever in my Bird. The rain is falling and it is so cold and damp, but we get to stay in and snuggle in the bed and read books and make lists and do laundry in between doses of ibuprofen. Don't get me wrong! I'm not glad my Bird is sick, but I am looking for the good and appreciating the space to breathe and care for her. I'm linking my little jump off the fast pace of life today to Tuesday's Unwrapped over at Chatting at the Sky.

I hope she's feeling better real soon! And that you get the time to get in some snuggles in between the getting laundry done and such. I love these rainy days.

I can just feel the cozy blanket down time...
but I do hope you could get more of it.

Those are the best days - of stolen moments, hugs and kisses with kids when you should be at work. I heart those days bigtime! So glad you got to share one!
