Sometimes the best thing you can do is nothing. That’s pretty much how our Sunday went. We had a mellow and oh, so rejuvenating slow Sunday.
From the middle of Saturday night into Sunday morning, light raindrops fell to the parched San Diego area. It was what they call “EL Nino”. We give our weather a name, while the rest of the world calls it rain. The storm of the decade, the one we keep hearing about on the news was finally hitting us! How did it go, you ask? An unimpressive 0.12 inches was recorded in San Diego on Sunday. Isn’t that about as much precipitation as you get on a foggy day?
After church I did some cooking (which you will probably see in a later blog post), the girls enjoyed some time at home playing with their toys, Logan hung out with the neighbor, and Daddy did some homework before work at night. I made stacking cup towers with the baby, which were of course instantly knocked down. The girls and baby didn’t nap at the same time, but I’m ok with that because I got some baby cuddles in while the twins were sleeping.
The girls are growing up so quickly. Their quirky little language mistakes are fading away as they start to learn the proper way to say things. They’ve learned that it’s not “byufadoh” but “beautiful”, and they are not “gors”, they’re “girls”. My babies are getting to be such big byufadoh gors! <3
I’ve been feeling like I commit too much time to the instantaneous media demands of Facebook and emails, so I put my phone away today and only checked it a few times. Even then I just checked to see if I had any important texts or phone calls and I stayed off of Facebook for the whole day!!! *gasp!*
Yesterday was crazy. Logan had a baseball game, John took the girls to the zoo, I taught Sunday School at the Saturday night service… It was a nice change of pace to not have to go anywhere on Sunday. I listened to my own advice for once and spent a day relaxing and finding plenty of time to be still.
I hope your were able to enjoy a slow Sunday as well. 🙂
