There are three things I have learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics and The Great Pumpkin.
R and R SUNDAY!
I agree with Linus, there are just some things I never discuss. One thing I am, however, always willing to discuss is how important a little Rest and Relaxation is for us all. So far this Fall has been a busy time for me, but I'm trying to keep things in balance and to remember to take some time out for a good rest now because soon the demanding holiday season will be upon us. If we don't want our batteries to burn out before then, we need to nurture ourselves a little. Winter blues come partly from a loss of our inner energy and when we don't get the proper rest we find ourselves run down and getting sick too. Winter won't be here officially until December, but it sure is feeling cold here in northern Ohio and it's easy to feel blue on dark and dreary cold days.
It's time to take our pillow and our blankets seriously.
Sleep is not a luxury, nor should it be an afterthought, something you try to work into your schedule if you can. During the nighttime, we actually regain all of the powers and energy we used during the daytime. It's like rebooting a computer. And you need a particular amount of sleep. In general most of us need seven and half hours of sleep. There are a rare few that can get by on less, but they are very few and far between.
I'm home this Sunday and resting from my moving out of the camper day yesterday. It is a big job for me to bring home all the things I either don't want to share with the mice over the winter or that I don't want to freeze up. I have to pack it all up and when it's home I have to tote it all inside and find a place for it all till next year's camping season begins. At the end of the day I was very tired indeed.
I slept like a baby, very soundly and got every bit of my required 7 and a half hours of sleep and more. Today is a restful one for me. Nothing much to do but rest and relax. I'm off to church here shortly where I always get a little extra need renewal and refreshment then back home where it is cozy and warm.
Hope your Sunday is a restful one that helps prepare for the week ahead. Enjoy your day and your life. Rest and relax -- it is soooo good for you!
Now how about that Great Pumpkin....
