I typed "rest" into the search bar on Unsplash.com and this photo was one that came up on the screen. I couldn't pass up using it. I think it's a good representation of how I felt on Tuesday when I realized how much I needed to take today off of work.
I missed posting yesterday! I thought I had something scheduled, but nope. Oh well. Life goes on. We are nearing the end of this little 30 days of blogging experiment. Is anyone even reading these? LOL
My recovery day really started last night by hitting happy hour after work and then a favorite brewery with a friend. One great thing about the job I have now is my office is close enough that my husband can drop me off in the morning if I want to go to happy hour after work, and then I take Lyft home.
This morning I drank my morning coffee while staring out the window watching the rain. I bought landscaping rock for a backyard project. I'm in the process of doing a mini overhaul on our backyard in preparation for summer. I did a major grocery shopping trip. I took a nap. I read a book. I laid on the couch and listened to the latest My Favorite Murder podcast. I went through 2 weeks of mail that had piled up. I worked on this week's training lessons with our new dog. And I ate potato salad for dinner.
In all, my day was filled with my kind of ways to give my mind a break from all the work stuff and I'm thankful I could take the day off.
