Playing Hookie

Half the flock have stayed home to rest today. Hubby has wrenched his neck so that his head sits at a peculiar angle upon his shoulders and Darling Daughter has taken a day off to sleep. She got into her jammies at about 8pm and has only surfaced for meals. She is the only person I know who can sleep for 24 hours, must be a teen thing.

So, in honour of the two homebodies I forwent the usual weekday breakfast of yogurt with granola or bran muffins and fruit and made a more weekend-oriented meal of eggs and toasted baguette.

Fresh herbs are showing their lovely faces in the garden and the eggs are liberally strewn with oregano and chives. A sliced tomato, some grated cheese and black pepper and you have a simple and elegant breakie, even on a Wednesday.
DD's is simpler, with fresh fruit instead of tomato and herbs but equally as tasty.

It is important to know when to take a little time for yourself to rest and heal. And spoiling yourself needn't be taxing, sometimes simple is best.
