Enjoy the Day!

I’ve been thinking how restorative this past weekend’s “do nothing” was for me. While I cannot do it all the time, it seems like a good idea to give myself permission to take time out once in awhile more often. Once a week would be fabulous, but I’m not sure how well that will work in my life.

Via Rachel’s One Pretty Thing blog, I found the amazing Baca Creative blog. I read every single post and, amongst a number of great ideas, came across her offering for making Enjoy the Day coupons.

This morning I’m tucking some of the coupons I’ve printed into my agenda as reminders. Today is free of any obligations to others, so I’m using one of the coupons right away.

A perfect accompaniment to the Enjoy Your Day concept is Sonic’s offer to give away free root beer floats tonight between 8 and midnight. I’m thinking a cruise through Sonic’s drive-through to pick up the root beer float and a quick drive to the nearest park to star watch is a lovely and relaxing way to celebrate summer.

ah yes June I do hope you try to take more of those days. Root beer floats! Gosh, I honestly have not had one of those since I was a teenager -- and that's a LONG time ago. :)

Yay! Glad you like the coupons and hope that you do take time to enjoy the day.

I love the coupon idea. We woman must give ourselves permission to take a day off, even though it hard for us to do. We need time for ourselves to allow the body and mind time to replenish.

Root beer float from Sonic, that is a great idea!!! I may have to have one.

Have a great day, June!

June - I keep up on your blog and have been remiss on commenting. I like how you took a day to yourself and hope you continue to do so to refresh your mind and spirit! And now I would like a root beer.

I will have to check out the Baca Creative blog -- sounds great!

A Root Beer float sounds so good! Enjoy star gazing.

I just love a root beer float - my great aunt would serve them to my sister and I at "happy hour". We've always called them "brown cows". Enjoy!

S.W.A.K.

Sounds heavenly June! I hope you enjoyed your root beer float -- next to watermelon and picnics, root beer floats scream summer to me!

Damnit! I wish I would've read this yesterday. Now I have to pay for my root beer float if I want one.

Oh that Sonic - always doing fabulous giveaways when I don't live near one anymore.

Enjoy your root beer float! That sounds perfect right now :)

And enjoy your Enjoy the Days! I'm right with you, Junie!

Nothing cures what ails like a rootbeer float! Veto would be so into that, and since we don't have a Sonic here, I'll just tell him it is a limited time offer in our kitchen, thanks to you! I should probably make him produce a coupon...
