last week we had a lot of rain. after walking the kids' to school, getting wet feet, feeling tired and not in an exercise mood (bad mama), i decided to spend the morning pampering myself.
i made a pot of chocolate chai tea (in my new tea pot that i got months ago but sat on my stove neglected), grabbed a black and white cookie, the sock i started knitting, and listened to the rain.
as much as i needed to work out at the gym, buy groceries and clean the house, i really needed that morning to nourish my soul. i always feel guilty when i slack off, but honestly, i probably need more of that. stay at home moms who spend their days caring for others need to take the time to care for themselves - if they don't, who will?
now i need to make a cozy for my tea pot. any pattern suggestions?
