Rest Time

I've come to the point where I need a bit of rest lately.  Usually during Z's nap I blog for Social Graces, respond to emails, edit pictures, clean the house, make a DIY for a shower, cut out coupons and search for deals or cut up our mass amount of veggies.  However, it's time to slow down and rest my body so I've decided to read.  Not just listen to my books, actually read a book.  My last book I listened to was amazing and I'll write about that soon but currently I'm reading The Help.  Yes, I've already seen the movie and now I'm reading the book.  I usually sit down with my favorite snack and read for about 40 mins.  I think it's a good amount of rest, then I'm up making dinner or doing whatever that needs to be done.
Snack:
Crunchy peanut butter and apple (The apples are from my CSA)
With hot friendship tea.  It's so delicious.
