The Calm

...before the storm. Just for one afternoon.

Our School's 30th anniversary went well. The place was full of people all day long and everyone seemed to be having a great time. We stayed for dinner and didn't get home til 7pm so there's some very tired people with little tolerance to spare for one another around here. I suspect I'll need to visit the supermarket for dinner ingredients before the end of the day but right now I just don't want to go anywhere. Despite being weary, it's a good kind of satisfied weary that makes the intolerance in the house a little easier to bear.

Now that church is over for the day I am indeed making this my day of rest...a good book, something to nibble on and a warm doona on the couch sounds about perfect. It'll be quite some time before I get the opportunity so I'll take it while I can.

Wow, 30 years! A pity my sister wasn't here to go there. She would have enjoyed being back at her old stomping grounds I'm sure.
Sleep well tonight!

I hope you got a chance to chill and read and nibble! Isn't it nice to have a quiet Sunday afternoon? I get fewer of those than I'd like.

What's a doona, by the way?

Actually, I slept. On the couch, under the doona. Miss Mischief had the other couch and the knee quilt!

Doona...I'm not sure what your equivalent word is. It's a feather-filled blanket kind of thing that you slip inside a pretty cover. You can get wool-filled doonas now too. We usually only have the one doona on our bed, but at the moment I have a thin quilt on top to keep the warmth in.
