Notice....no smartphone, no computer, no alarm set. And notice another old fashioned term? A bed jacket. It's not cold enough to turn on the furnace, but it's dreary and chilled enough that sitting up in bed without something around my shoulders wasn't cutting it. My mother and grandmother always had "bed jackets" and recently they seem to be making a comeback. Mr. Tutu has given me several over the past couple years, and they're just perfect for our chilly weather. Mine are fleece, cape-shaped but with sleeves and pockets. Perfect.
True, I didn't grab a "real" book to read. Early in the morning my arthritic hands just won't hold a book. Wrapping them around a nice mug of coffee gets them going, and the light weight of the e-reader means I can gallop on through a book pain free. Who says you can't mix new technology with old-fashioned comfort? I chose not to worry about projects, book reviews, or planning for an upcoming trip. It was wonderful just to have a day to myself.
Every once in a while, we all need a jammy day. I hope you get one too.
