As I started writing up my post for today I thought about this awesome quote from Mary Jean Irion:
"Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.”
I was thinking about this quote again as I contemplated what "normal" is around here.
Sometimes Saturdays are filled with just hanging out on the couch with the kids and movie marathons. Sometimes Saturdays are full work-days for me so that I have more time when the kids are here to be flexible with their schedules. Sometimes Saturdays are for working in the yard or going to the pool or lighting a fire or hanging out with friends. Sometimes Saturday's are for getting out of dodge with Aaron or traveling for work.
Today was a pretty normal, easy Saturday.
Here's a look at my Saturday:
Today started with pounding rain on skylights.
It rained most of the day - which is why it is so green here - which made it really easy for me to get my work done vs. wishing to be outside the whole time.
I stopped at Starbucks on the way here and picked up a latte and a breakfast sandwich. I ate it while reading the paper. I moved a couple of loads of laundry around. I fed the cats.
I spent a good portion of the day right here as I finished up content for the Story classroom. I've been trying to not have to work on weekends if possible - when the new kit release happens to fall on the weekend I usually have a few things at least to get done.

The light pink ones are ready for me to bring a few inside now. And those raindrops. So cool.
Today's lunch as the same as yesterday's lunch. Super simple: tomato soup + goldfish + garlic bread. I usually read the rest of the paper that I might have missed from breakfast.
After lunch I took a shower and set out to finish up the rest of my work by 4pm when Aaron would become available.
Yesterday was in the 80's. Today was in the 50's.
After I was done working for the day Aaron and I went out to dinner and then came back to my house to watch The Revenant.
I specifically asked him if we could take a few photos on the couch to go along with the other photos I took on the couch earlier in the week.
He was game of course.
Hope you had a nice Saturday and a restful Sunday!
