Ruminations of Relaxation

Wow friends! This weekend was amazing, brilliant, and altogether lovely. . . Well, pretty much, if I don’t think about being in bed all day yesterday. . . So, it was a good Friday and Saturday.

I tried several different ways to relax. I thought maybe I could share and I wanted to hear your ideas too.  

Originally my friend was to visit my daughter for a Aromatouch massage.  Eight essential oils, with a specific order and touch massage to release tension and promote wellness. Well when she backed out, guess who quickly volunteered as tribute?! What bliss! I went from weeknight brainfog to slumber party mom. 

Then after playing mom-taxi Saturday morning, I helped my girl launch her baking business. We made menus and visited a dozen of our neighbors.  Her first couple of orders are due Tuesday!  I have the hard task…Silent partner. 

Then I worked on a small painting project for a kitchen cabinet. And I found a coloring app I don’t hate. Nice. 

Still. Today is Monday, can I hold this inner beast at bay this week? What about your methods, do you have a go-to way to relieve stress and anxiety? 



I have been a Lorain county resident for five years now. Anywhere you go you can see quintessential American life in our backyard. From scarecrows to Organized Labor Day, from urban decay to rural homesteading, and my question has been, "Where is the joy?!" People need more reasons to smile. While I am committed to educating and empowering people, I promise this blog will always share the hope and joy I have.
