I love the afternoon sun!
Specifically I love the "winter" afternoon sun,
the way it slides subtly into my kitchen and rests on the platter that holds all the coffee additives....
By the time this happens, I am usually pooped, tired, distressed, or cranky.
The sunshine reminds me that I have choices today.
I can continue to race around getting things done, or I can leave it until tomorrow,
and enjoy a good ol' cup o' joe....
Well, you can probably guess that the coffee wins out most of the time.
Life is just too short to push yourself.....
No one notices if you do anyway....
So....I have given myself permission to do as the civilized Englishmen (and ladies) do,
I take an afternoon break, right about 4pm.
I am then my more likely to last the evening without meltdown.
If you haven't tried this, do it!!
Especially young mothers, just put them into their beds,
and let them cry for awhile.
They will get tired, and fall asleep, promise.
