#write31days | October 1

Well, here we are again, October 1st.

So here we go!

Since we’re starting on a Sunday…one of my favorite ways to find rest?  Sunday nap.

For all of my life, Sunday naps have been a part of them.  I can remember being a kid and Sunday naps were a part of our after church routine. There came a time I didn’t have to take a nap, but I had to rest in my room, and Mom and Dad were taking a nap. I probably napped more often than not, truth be told.

Still today, after church, errands and lunch, I love to lay down on my couch for a bit. I sometimes don’t nap, but usually I do.  I turn on a football game in the fall, Hallmark channel, golf/tennis/baseball depending on the season and it promptly puts me to sleep. I’ve woken up in time to see lots of winning moments, but slept through most of the game!  🙂 Another favorite, Friday nap after the work week is over!

I’ve also successfully taught Auggie the practice of Sunday nap since he’s been around!

Puppies and babies always make naps look so enticing!

See you tomorrow, and find a way for some rest!

    Hi! I like the format of your Write 31 Days ideas. I’m pretty random as well so I was thinking of doing something similar. If there’s anything that day that I feel especially passionate about, I will write about that, but I’m planning some ongoing topics that I can come back to if I get stuck. I’m a teacher too. I teach middle school music/chorus
