The Importance of Being Idle, #923


I didn’t leave the house yesterday until 5:45pm.  I can’t remember the last time I had a day like that, and though I know staying home all day may sound lazy to some of you, I had anything but a lazy day.

There is a beauty in staying at home that I hold sacred.  I did 5 loads of laundry in that time, organized a closet, made 2 costumes, tended to my children, read a little of my book and yes…even had time for a lazy little nap.  To me, it was all a breath of fresh air.

My kids sat around and watched TV all day long.  I know my husband kind of felt bad for them, but not me.  We have such over-scheduled lives, and sometimes, I think it really is okay to be vegetables.  In fact, I will go as far to say we all desperately need days like my yesterday.

So, my song of the day is by Oasis.  I think their song “The Importance of Being Idle” really sums up just how I’m feeling.  With that, I am off for a packed morning-to-night day today, because a lazy day like yesterday only comes around once in a blue moon.


About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
