Resting

Yesterday we had a first: Emily and I sat on the lawn and read for a couple hours. The kids played in a blow up pool.

No computers. No phones. Just relaxing.

We haven’t sat side-by-side on the lawn like that once since we moved to Waterville.

I’m liking this resting thing.

    Good for you guys! This resting thing can become habit forming. I am enjoying it for now while I can still rest.

    Miss you guys.

    lack of it can be damaging for sure…enjoy!

    however, I am concerned: there’s precious little mention of any Guinness…

    Perhaps an amended version could be read as follows:

    “Yesterday we had a first: Emily and I sat on the lawn and read for a couple hours. The kids played in a blow up pool.

    No computers. No phones. Just relaxing, coupled with a lovely ice cold Guinness.

    Good point!

    It was actually a Shipyard Export Ale.

    The Guiness Extra Stout was a bit later. 🙂
