And on the seventh day, we rest.

I woke up this morning not feeling quite well. I think that training stress + allergy season is catching up with me.

So instead of running today, I rested.

It was a beautiful day today — 84 degrees?! — and so I hung the laundry. Mmm, freshly hung laundry.

Later, inspired by this video on The Simple Dollar, I started going through a laundry basket of needed-to-be-dealt-with files in our attic.

After that, I started to go through my yarn stash.

That tote of yarn? I re-rolled all of that. Then I finished those socks there. Then I started working on the sweater I swore I’d have done when we moved into our house … a year ago …

It’s like I found running and gave up knitting. It was fun to dig into it again today.

Then Tony and I broke into a special bottle.

What a lovely afternoon.


Georgia enjoyed it too.

Later we played games with friends.

Here’s to a new, productive week.
