Lazy. That’s what you call the time between Day 3 and today. Lazy. No writing. No check in’s.
In real life I wasn’t lazy. I mowed the yard Friday night. It’s been so rainy lately that are yard was starting to resemble a jungle. I’m pretty sure there were some monkey sounds coming from the backyard! The humidity has already kicked in full gear and the heat is already nearing the high 90’s. I would think it’s safe to say, summer is here.
Saturday was normal. Early morning run, light house cleaning, grocery shopping, some tootling around the house after lunch and then grilling out later in the evening. I love my house and I can be a homebody. There’s nothing magical in my weekend just another awesome weekend.
I can say I’m grateful to have food in my belly, a roof over my head and clothes on my back. Everything else is cherry on the sundae. I know for some people every weekend seems magical (hence it’s really not but the internet makes it look that way) but for me I’m happy with the occasional adventure. If you have adventures ALL the time then they sort of lose the wow fact. It’s kind of like eating out., if you eat out all the time, eating out loses it’s wow factor.
My new thing is trying very hard to not do carry out or eating out. I’m trying to learn to leave that for really special occasions so that it becomes just that, special! Thursday at work is special because it’s vegetable plate day at the local eatery. It’s this little small place that normally does gift baskets, special eatery items and on Thursday, Vegetable day! That I get excited for!
Sunday was the same as the rest. I really wanted to get a bike ride in but allergies from Friday evenings lawn mower session had me with an ugly sinus pressure headache. So church then home for a light lunch. I actually laid down for a nap and slept like a champ! It’s not often I do that in the middle of the day. I’m just not a napper. But that was good stuff! I should had sat myself down for some writing and thinking. You know, thoughts. Instead, I didn’t. That’s okay, I forgive myself. The rest of Sunday was spent just doing mudane stuff getting ready for the week. I don’t like starting Monday with a pile of dirt clothes, dirty floors or a dirty sink. I like for dishes to be put away, clothes put away and the house tidy. It just gives me that sense of “ahhhh.” It makes my soul feel more peaceful.
That’s it. That’s the weekend. Nothing exciting. Just life. Till next time.
