making the trek

Trekking through life: Faith, family, friends and a whole lot of coffee!

Let the 3 day weekend begin May 27, 2013

And so begins the long weekend.  Can I get an “AMEN”?!?!?—posted a little behing, I’m catching up here.

This morning the Hubs and I are doing a SUP (Stand up Paddleboard) demo.  8 a.m.   in the river.  It is lovely outside right now.  Lovely, I say.  I’m thinking the river is going to be cold and therefore I resolve to STAND UP and not fall in.  Ok?  Ok. Let you know how that goes.  **it didn’t, just too windy today, and I actually wanted to stand UP, not swim in the river..

Reading books.  Riding bikes.  Relaxing in the day.  That’s how the rest of our Saturday went down and it was awesome!!  It’s a challenge to really relax, isn’t it??  There’s always so much TO DO on our days off.  Grocery shopping, house cleaning, lawns, maintenance around the casa, kids to and fro.   It’s the season of our life right now and that’s ok, the interesting thing is that when we can and do relax it’s as if our bodies and minds can’t break free from the principles of inertia:

in·er·tia  (-nûrsh)

n.

1. Physics The tendency of a body to resist acceleration; the tendency of a body at rest to remain at rest or of a body in straight line motion to stay in motion in a straight line unless acted on by an outside force.
2. Resistance or disinclination to motion, action, or change: the inertia of an entrenched bureaucracy.

and like most parents I know, we seem to be constantly on that straight line of motion…..always moving forward!

And so, somehow we managed to find a compromise in productivity and relaxation that we could live with.  I hope the same is true for you!!!
