I've been feeling a bit gloomy and under the weather so I took yesterday off and spent some time treating myself to:
*a trip to the hair salon where I had my tresses colored, trimmed and styled. Mmm...that scalp massage was so relaxing!
*a visit to the gourmet market for roses, strawberries, fancy water and a fabulous new magazine
*a bubble bath with yummy new soap I bought in New York
*a little afternoon cat nap (kitten included)
*a before dinner glass of wine and some girl talk with Rhiannon at my favorite Italian restaurant
*an evening out with Beren enjoying one of our best friends' band perform at a great little tropical bar & grille
I realize more & more that no one else is going to "take care" of me, I have to do these things for myself. A day of pampering and a bit of self-indulgence really gets this gal back on track....ahh.....I now feel refreshed and ready to return to work this morning!
