Although it was a balmy 45 degrees yesterday, I took refuge in the bedroom-the warmest room in the house. As a buffer between home and work, I lounged on the bed with a good book. Once my husband came home, we ate. Then we both returned to the "warm room" each with a book. While we read, the cats and dogs joined us. We had a full bed. Being cozy and warm, my eyes kept closing. In an attempt to continue reading-the book rested opened on my chest. I read in spurts, but finally gave into the coziness. Snuggling into my husband, my head rested in the crook of his arm. About an hour later, I wiped the drool from my face and adjusted my glasses that pressed into my face while I snored. Plans to go to studio to finish a ring were curtailed. Instead of going out into the cold, dark night I put my pajamas on and continued to read and rest, read and rest. This was an act of self-care.
