We stretched the 4th of July into five days. This Canadian embraced the American celebration and it was glorious.
We went to a pick-your-own peaches place.
I drank beer at lunch.
I watched fireworks and ate vegan sausage with fries.
I drank four cups of tea on my front porch.
I did yoga. (Once.) After yoga we sat on the studio floor talking with other yogis for so long that we had to move on to a bunch spot to continue the fun.
I read while lying on the couch until I fell asleep. Then I woke up and read more.
I made brownies and ate far more than my share.
While I admit that I did a little Sunday evening pouting about my blissful little stay-cation being over, there is something that was very invigorating about the whole thing.
I didn’t need to go anywhere exotic. I didn’t need to do anything terribly exciting. I just needed to slow down and notice the abundance that was already around me, and enjoy it.
That, I did.
If you celebrated the 4th of July, hope it was a lovely one.
