November 24 ~ Today I am thankful for Sunday afternoon naps. Big yawn … it’s one of my guilty pleasures. It started out innocently enough, when the kids were young we would lie on the couch to rest and “watch” a movie after church on Sundays. Nine times out of 10, we all would nod off half way through it.
The kids are grown now, but I still enjoy a nice nap on a Sunday afternoon. It’s the perfect time to relax and catch up on sleep I’ve missed because of a combination of early mornings / late nights during the week. I wake up feeling relaxed and refreshed. I’ve eliminated the guise of watching a movie … now it’s church, out for lunch, home for a nap, then maybe a movie 🙂
November 8 ~ Today I am thankful for my DVR. Don’t laugh, I know it sounds silly, but I really am thankful that I have one.
I love that I have it set to record all the regular shows that I like to watch. I don’t even know what day of the week or time that they come on. Since I don’t have a lot of time for watching TV, I truly do appreciate that all my favorite shows and Hallmark movies are recorded and waiting for me to watch.
Yesterday afternoon and evening, I had some free time to catch up on a couple of my shows. I love that I can watch an hour long show in about 40 minutes by fast forwarding through the commercials. I even watched a Thanksgiving movie on the Hallmark Channel. Since I was actually watching “live” TV, I wasn’t able to skip the commercials. It was ok though because I saw previews for some of their Christmas movies. I just love those sappy, happy ending type holiday love stories … so I set my DVR to record them 🙂
