lazy day

I woke up earlier than I’d hoped, and spent the first few hours of the day attempting to fall back asleep.

Then I made french toast with fried apples. Yum.

The rest of the day has been spent holed up in the house, watching movies – and discovering that documentaries stress me out!

At the end of a day like this, I often feel disappointed in myself. Shouldn’t I have accomplished more? What if I’d worked out at 7:30 instead of attempting to go back to sleep? Could I have cleaned more, made more, learned more, had more energy to socialize? Yeah, maybe. Those things might be true, and I don’t want to squander my days, but I also want to give myself permission to rest. And if that means sitting on the couch watching movies for one day, I’m going to choose to let myself enjoy it.
