I woke this morning to an email the sender intended to be insulting, but was instead, freeing. It gave my family a good laugh as I breathed a sigh of relief. So, there we were, all three of us, at 8:00 this morning, snuggling on the bed with an entire, empty, delicious day in front of us. Jeffrey suggested we drive in to town for chicken biscuits at Chick-fil-A. (This might not seem very out of the ordinary to you, but we live about 40 minutes from those delicious biscuits, and make a general, frugal habit of going to town only when we really need to.) We all grinned at each other, slipped on some shoes and went. No hair styling, no make up, no outfits. Just us - headed out together for an out-of-the ordinary breakfast.
We had our breakfast then went to the music store to get Sloane equipped for her first day of band. She's playing the clarinet. I love the clarinet! We've been home ever since. I spent most of the day, except for a delicious two hour nap, sitting on the sofa reading A Fine Romance by Susan Branch. It's a delightful book; perfect like a long nap on a deep couch in a pretty room.
Just now Jeffrey and Sloane are waiting outside for me. We're headed to a conservation area to hike and watch the bats come out.
A perfect day. sigh. Just what my tired spirit needed.
Happy weekend, friends. I hope today brings you just what you need, too.
