I'm off to Nirvana...
I've spent 11 days reading, writing, blogging and nanna napping. Besides the boring everyday things like cooking, cleaning and washing that is.
I don't think I realised just how much I needed to just chill and have 'me' time. Trying to resist thinking of all the things I should be doing and not feeling guilty that I'm not doing them is hard.
The next 12 months on the project are expected to be extremely busy and stressful, so guilt about not doing much of anything over the break - well guilt be gone.
The best part about today - I went to a book sale, because you can never have too many books. Book sales and I are akin to me visiting nirvana ( a place or state characterised by freedom from or oblivion to pain, worry and the external world) I bought ten books - because obviously they're cheaper the more you buy.
I have way too many books in my house as it is and it's almost a standing joke in my house about me and books. Hubby and my boys tend to steer me around book sales, because I'm a bit of a sad case, I have to buy something. Some women buy shoes, some buy clothes, some buy makeup - me, I buy books. Fiction, non- fiction - it doesn't matter as long as it's interesting.
So what in your world takes you to Nirvana?
