chill out

We break from our regular programming to chill out.

BugLite and I have been trying to make a conscientious effort to spend Sunday afternoons chilling out. We both have super stressful jobs and finding time to relax on a weekend is a rarity. We realised that this will become non-existent when kids come into the picture, so we’re trying to make the most of our kid-free lives.

During our chill out sessions, BugLite normally sits under a tree and reads and then quietly contemplates. If you know him, he’s the kind of guy who can’t keep still and always finds things to do, so having him slow down for an hour is a mega effort. I have been going back to some drawing and it’s mainly been simple pen drawings as of late.

I’m proud of these given that I haven’t really drawn anything for a good three years. And because lately I haven’t had much to be thankful for, I really look forward to chill out Sundays :)

PS. Thanks for your feedback on my little side poll. I’ll be posting more organisation hacks (hopefully) soon!

  1. Your drawings are lovely. Keep it up. It’s important to find those things that make our souls happy : )

    As the wife of a man who travels a lot for his job and the mother of four children, finding relaxation time for me can be difficult but it is so important. If you are stressed and crazy, the rest of your family will be also. Remember that taking care of yourself is the best way to take care of your husband and children (when they come along).

    Please continue to share your journaling. I have learned so much already as my journal takes on a life of its own.

    Thank you.
