Me Time Tuesday: Not So Easy

It's not so easy to find or make time for yourself is it? Did anyone try? Well, I did. I thought about it every day. I felt that Scarlett O' Hara syndrome, coming to the surface. I found myself saying, "tomorrow, I'm too busy today, or " Wow the days over already"
Hey, I'm new at this, there are bound to be bumps along the way. No biggie.

But I did manage to find some time for me this week.

On Sunday morning, before I posted my Thankful Sunday, before anyone was awake, before church, before everything, I bundled up (it was cool here) and took my coffee out to the deck for some quiet me time. Sitting on silence ,watching the sun rise, listening for Jesus. That's not happening to often in my house. It was lovely.

And yesterday we went down to Little Compton, RI. My favorite place in RI by far! We went there last year on Labor day too and I think this may become a tradition. Who said me time had to be spent alone? Make your own rules!
I had a blast. Here are some pics of our day.

one happy girl!
sweet feet
The place where we always stop for ice cream has some entertainment as you can see.

Last week three people participated in the Me Time Tuesday post. Thank you!!! I was really surprised because I came up with this idea until Monday, that's pretty short notice. Now that you have had a week to try it out, who up for it? Come on share your ideas, it's fun!

Oh sounds like wonderful me time and the day at the beach ooo the best!

My me time was an evening out to dinner with my sister this week. Not sure I will get a post done about it today but I am doing it thanks to you!
Hope you have lots more me time this week.

Love your little mermaid. Everybody looked like they had a good time!!

This is the last day of Hubs vacation. He's out cutting grass before it warms up. . . . . . .The Organizer woke up happy -- I'm so glad.

I'm behind on everything I'd really LIKE to do, but I'll link up later if I can get a post together. Intend to get a cup of coffee and sit down with the cookbooks for a spell -- if I don't fall asleep five minutes after I get still!! ~Liz

I didn't do a post because today I'm cranky about my me time. With Jax losing all his nursing, I'm not going to get much me time! Can you tell Im a bit miffed?

Michelle said...
