SHOULD HAVE. COULD HAVE. BUT INSTEAD

Today I had planned to do all of the house work. Should have. I have a stack of sewing for myself and others that needs doing. Could have. But the warmth of the winter sun called me. Instead of doing what my OCD mind was telling me. I gave my flu riddled body a break. Time out, and instead I lay on the grass.

Too lazy to even get a rug, I lay with my body touching the earth, and watched Jarvis happily play in the sun.  All I had was my camera and my box of tissues.


I watched how happy Jarvis was with his ever present rake, just pottering about in the sun collecting leaves, and I reminded myself yet again, sometimes it is okay, not to doing anything, but enjoy the moment.




When Jarvis come over for cuddles and lays down on me, he always has this habit of pushing up my shirt and laying his face on my belly. Skin to skin.

 Then he likes to blow raspberries on my tummy

  1. nawww...what a perfect way to spend an hour. Time passes so quickly that it's good to stop and do little at least once a day. Bless Jarvis's love of your tummy too :D Hope you feel well again very soon.

  6. How precious! Life just goes on and some things are put off, but as long as there are important things going on in life that makes up for it :) All the little this and that's will be done no worries!

    1. He is. Jarvis is the sweetest cuddliest thing, but he is also a rough boy.

  8. Him blowing raspberries on your tummy made me say "AWWW" out loud. I agree with you, sometimes it's good just to be present with your child and observe. <3 (I hope you feel better however)
