The past few weeks have passed by in a blur! I was so busy that there were days when I didn't even check my e-mail... a huge rarity for me even when I'm away from home!
With the past two weeks and this coming week full of guests, services, events, 50th anniversary parties, reunions, and traveling, the summer is winding down quickly! Despite all the frenzied activity we've been experiencing we've been finding some time to do the things that we enjoy and spend some time relaxing.
I've made the effort to give the babies some bath play time every evening before bed and I've noticed that it really helps them calm down after the long day. Our son is particularly fond of bath time - he loves splashing and practicing his new skills in the tub. Our daughter loves to have time to paint or use markers in the morning for some special Mama Time while Boy (as she refers to him) takes a nap. I've been trying to spend some time enjoying a chapter or two of a Miss Read book each day and despite all of our activities, Fr. John and I have been making a real effort to spend time together each evening. We've been hooked into Season Five of 24 the past few nights (I love borrowing dvds from the library!) and are really enjoying the show and each other.
What do you like to do to savor a little time when things are busy?
