For everyone who is celebrating today, Happy Easter! or Happy Sunday for people who do not celebrate. I wish you a peaceful day. I hope you get to spend the day with family and friends or outdoors enjoying the world’s natural beauty.
Everyone has a different way to kick off the holiday season. For me? I love to attend the Silver Bells in the City event. All the lights and sounds of Christmas just puts me in the spirit of the season.
Today, January 3, 2017, is known as Festival of Sleep Day. Dedicating an entire day to sleep sounds incredibly relaxing. In fact, I think my cats have been practicing for this unofficial holiday for some time. Mid-Michigan is dreary today. I woke up to dense fog, followed by rain and cold. My cats (and dogs) did not want any part of being outdoors for a long period of time. Instead, they all are curled up around the warm fire enjoying a lazy afternoon.
As for me, my sleep patterns vary. I love to stay up late in the early morning hours. I find the night time silence inspiring. What can I say, 3 a.m. and I are old friends. At least on this Festival of Sleep Day, I can sneak in afternoon nap without a twinge of guilt. I will simply blame the quick snooze on research for my blog, right?
