It’s been raining here a lot lately.
One cold front followed by a hurricane followed by another cold front makes it hard to get outside and do much.
I’m starting to understand why we have such a thing as “staycations”.
Staycations are vacations you take at or near home. Instead of going away, you stay close to home. I don’t count working around the house as staycationing; that’s work.
My favorite staycations happen on rainy days. These are days I stay home and sleep in, binge watch some of my favorite shows, or read a book I haven’t been able to get to in a while. These are the days I feel like putting paint on an empty canvas, starting a new journal, or blogging. These are the days I finish a crochet project or another piece of my quilt.
If any of that sounds like work to you, substitute your own peaceful hobby and you will share my staycation too.
The point of vacationing is to bring you peace, rest, and a mental break from your normal everyday toil. Staycationing can give you all that.
Consider making your next vacation a staycation.
