So this weekend was kind of boring. Nothing special. At least, on the outside.
It involved a lot of errands that I would have usually done during the week, but the “monsters” kind of interfered with my energy level last week.
It involved household duties like lawn work and sprinkler fixing for David. And for me, normal laundry and bigger stuff like washing the dog crate bedding.
It did not involved lounging in a chair by the sea, or really celebrating the shortest of all seasons here in New England as I would have loved to do
but looking back on it, it was a “take action” weekend for lots of odds and ends
and that kind of gives me a sense of accomplishment.
Some sweet spots included :
stopping at the pet store for dog food, and finding this big, long, fluffy friend for Chica in the clearance aisle !
I also printed out quite a few pieces of my art work and created some cards, a few of which went into the mail this morning with surprise birthday wishes inside.
Sunday was National Waffle Day ! (oh, no, did you miss it ?!)
Waffles are a fav of the hubby so I made up a batch and we had breakfast on the back deck to celebrate.
I also spent sometime doing my Rock Fairy duties. The staff at my oral surgeon’s office is doing the Light The Night Walk for Leukemia in September and I have donated a custom bag of Rock My World Rocks to hand out to the participants.
Their team is called “Angels and Heroes” so each rock has that on one side, and some inspirational words from the Rock Fairy on the other.
I love being able to spread the love in these little ways! I will be dropping these off today when I go to my last follow-up appointment after having my wisdom teeth out in May. The tongue is still slightly tingly/numb on one side as a result of that long ago surgery but there are days when I forget about it most of the time so that is good sign that I may just heal up completely over time.
(The flowers on the back deck this morning are celebrating the rainy day !)
So while not everyday can be about the big, juicy celebrations,
taking the time to notice the simple graces in the every day is what makes life feel special and well lived, don’t you think ?
What was your sweetest of simple graces this past weekend, Beautiful One ?
I hope you took the time to notice and celebrate them a bit.
Happy Monday !
