I have never taken a nap in my guest room. I've owned my house for three years and that was the first time I took a nap in the guest room. It was bliss! Attila (the cat) is not allowed in the guest room so I had a 30 minute nap all to myself while he slept on my bed in my room.
I also refused to cook a great deal on my staycation. When I cook I can spend a couple of hours standing over the stove, prepping food, washing dishes and running back and forth between pantry/fridge/oven. This was my staycation and I wanted it to be super simple.
Staycation simplicity was the goal.
Therefore, when I sat down to have a bite to eat for lunch I felt very European.
A glass of Pinot Gris, meats, cheeses, olives, almonds, figs and a boiled egg. Minimal dishes to clean. No cooking (the egg was boiled that morning). The figs are from my parents' house in east Texas and very lovely.
On this staycation I also ignored my phone. I could check work emails but for the most part I didn't. I did chat with my family during the day but left all other lines of communication to wait until later.
Sometimes this girl has just got to unplug, pretend she lives a simple life on a day to day basis and enjoy the little things ... like naps.
