Self Care Sunday ~ The day after Christmas

Image Credit: Sesame Street

Here it is already the day after Christmas. We did the best we could to stretch the holiday out as long as possible yesterday in order to enjoy the moments as long as we could. 

Rather than opening our presents at the same time, we watch as the other person opens their gift and if we're lucky we get to hear a story about the gift such as where we found it or how hard it was to find. 

Two of the gifts Bailey gave to me were ones she found thrifting and at a yard sale. She was sure I had seen one of them this summer when she picked it up, but it was before my eye surgery and I didn't see a thing. She had wondered all year if I had seen it or not. LOL

In opening our gifts this way we get to enjoy the holiday even more by making it last as long as possible. 

Fleeting moments happen so often that we want to stop and cherish moments like these. We don't know what the future holds and don't know if this may be the last time we're able to celebrate and we want to cherish moments like these. 

I hope all of you who celebrate had a  wonderful holiday filled with peace and love.

Today is Self Care Sunday again. One of the presents I received was an electric toothbrush, which can be had for as little as $5.00 these days. I absolutely love it. It's like brushing my teeth elevated to a new level. It's the perfect way to utilize  self care regarding oral hygiene.  

I'm also spending part of the day doing my own laundry, folding and putting it away, which is another way of taking care of myself. It ensures I have the clean clothes ready for when I need them.

We will be spending today at home, enjoying the food of which we have plenty, and watching Christmas movies and playing some new games we received for Christmas. 

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday. :)

  1. You sound very content and full of peace. I hope you have a wonderful day after Christmas.

  2. So glad you enjoyed Christmas Day! Self care is critical for all of us.
    I am practicing a different type of self care. Christmas Eve I was busy cooking until 3 am then woke at 6 to begin the day. For me today is a day of extreme rest. As much as I ,love to read, I am not even going to tax my brain today (blogs excluded of course) Taking a shower and putting on "soft" clothes is about as much energy as I am expending today!

    1. Thank you, Anne. Your day sounds so nice and relaxing! That’s a great way to spend a self care Sunday.

    1. Thank you, Sluggy. Merry Christmas to you too!

  4. So glad you had a great holiday. Come tomorrow, I will be slowing down and pampering me a little. Little things can make a big difference.

    1. Thank you, Cheryl. Little things can and do make a big difference.

  5. I'm pretty sure our 4 year old grandson had his entire pile of presents unwrapped in about 3 minutes! He did run to Dad, our son, and ask what everything was between gifts but it was a whirl wind!

    1. That is so funny, Lana. I wouldn’t expect a 4 year old to open presents our way. It’s way too much fun to rip them open at that age. LOL

      I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

  6. I usually hand out the gifts one per person and then each one opens theirs one at a time. I take a picture usually, though this year things got a bit hectic for some odd reason.

    God bless.

    1. That sounds nice, Jackie. I only took one picture this year for some reason. I don’t know what I was thinking.
