Food Life Project Day 4: A Lazy Day

When I set the goal of writing daily for 365 days I thought I might have issues thinking of a topic each day. Nothing like a 24-hour deadline to cause writer’s block!

So I decided to seek out a few writing prompt sources in case I needed inspiration. I had to laugh to myself when I saw the first prompt – What is your favorite way to spend a lazy day?

A better question might be “what is a lazy day?”. Between being a mom, an MBA student, a full-time professional, and actually having hobbies I can’t even remember the last lazy day I had. Oh, and my lazy days probably don’t look like many other people’s.

So if I did find myself with a lazy day how would I spend the time?

Waking up to the sun streaming through the bedroom windows and the smiling face of my daughter ready to face the morning.

A leisurely breakfast of eggs and toast with a large coffee and some online news on the side.

Lacing up my running shoes for a mid-morning outdoor run. The sun kissing my skin and the tunes keeping my pace.

Cleaning up for a special lunch out on the town with my two favorite people. Possibly a slice of pizza at Cossetta’s or a burger on the deck at Jersey’s.

An afternoon spent reading a new book and sipping iced tea.

After a little lounging, I’m ready to get moving in the kitchen. Turn on a little music, pull out the cutting board and chef’s knife, and raid the produce drawer for a killer salad.

What better way to end the day than a relaxing meal with a glass of wine and some lively conversation. Unless, of course, the day actually ends with some snuggles in bed and kisses from the loves of my life.

Maybe I need to start carving out some time in my calendar for my lazy day!
