So the weather is bad outside and you are home for the day. There are no obligations because the weather is a mess and there is nowhere to go. What would you do with your day?
I was talking with my kids about this. What if we had a day off from school and work. An unexpected reprieve from our busy lives?
This is the day that sounded good to us:
Got to take advantage of a free day with some extra snooze time.
Lounging in pj’s all day. Honestly there’s nothing better.
Eating later because of sleeping in. Some eggs, bacon and pancakes sounds perfect for a late breakfast.
Watch a good movie
Still feeling sleepy and lazy. Why not grab a comfy blanket and snuggle up for a movie.
Catching up on the book that hadn’t been finished or the magazine that came in the mail that was put aside untouched.
Why not? It’s a lazy day and a nap sounds good.
Ah, there’s nothing like some good, hot, wonderful smelling food to simmer all day long.
Baking some cookies with the kids and having them decorate them. Nothing like a fresh cookie just out of the oven.
Pulling out the craft supplies not seen since last winter when we had a lazy weekend day.
It’s now later in the day. Dinner will be eaten and plans for the next day will be made. Time to snap out of the laziness of an unexpected day off. Tomorrow it will be back to business.
This would be our family’s perfect day off. What about you? What would make for a memorable day off for you?
