Our mission this week is to show how we how we pamper ourselves and take the time (without guilt) to recharge. I'll be honest, with all our children either on their own or driving age, plus the luxury of a part time job, I've got it made. Still, with my jewelry business, housekeeping, bills, school activities, and the huge amount of volunteer work I do in our church and the community, I find there are just note enough hours in the day to get everything done.
So how do I like to relax and recharge? With books! Books on gardening, books on making jewelry, books on cooking, books on healthy living, and magazines--lots of magazines. These are just a few of the books I have on making jewelry.
To really recharge my batteries I like to go on Sunday drives in the country with our kids, their cousins, and their grandpa.
But the best way to recharge for me is to take a summer vacation. Our family has taken a summer vacation nearly every year, and when we arrive home I'm already longing for the next one.
