What would your perfect day be like? Describe it.

A day with no schedule or demands and no list to accomplish. A day where I plan the menus, but someone else cooks all 3 meals and no one tells me (or hints at) what I should or should not eat that day. 😂 A day that starts with worship and ends with fellowship with the people I love. No drama and no tension in any area! And maybe a pedicure somewhere in there. :) That sounds to me like the perfect day.
