This morning was the first frost of the season. It looked like crystals covering were covering the tips of grass and ferns. My lovely little ones have given me a cold and at 28 degrees Fahrenheit outside this morning I opted to stay inside with a cozy cup of tea instead of a long walk with my dog Cosmo. Don't worry Cosmo instead got to run around outside and chase the wild bunnies who live under our deck. While I warmed up inside with a cup of tea I pondered what self-care acts would bolster me today when I'm feeling a tad under the weather. Especially when we are sick, making time for rest and ways to rejuvenate ourselves are so important.
Once the day warmed up and I felt rested from a quiet morning I tackled some work, but made sure to take breaks often and fit in self-care. Some self-care acts that bolster me when I'm feeling slower than usual are:
Time outside - I enjoyed hanging with Macaroni (our newest pet, a Giant Angora Rabbit).
Baking - I baked an orange polenta cake with my kids when the got home from school.
Restorative - Today my yoga was sprawling out on the floor in savasana, with steady inhales and exhales.
Even though I'd love to finish seaming the sweater I am working on, I am off to an early bedtime.
May you all rest, knit, and find joy today.
