Just one of those days…

Everytime I get asked the question by mom about what I did with my day I pause and then say nothing. Which is totally untrue but at the same time I feel there is not enough excitement going on to dwell. Just life…and yet moments fly by and I want to remember them.

An early start to the day at the gym. Meeting with my friend for coffee. Carrying the bag my husband got me for our 10th anniversary. Listening to NPR. Eating lunch. Stopping for groceries and treating myself to a couple of magazines. Planning. Getting a little break with my latest knitting project. Making cupcakes. Watching a soccer game with the Mr. Seeing the boys faces when they found their new comic books shipped all the way from France. Planning my next outing. Seeing the light. Seeing life.

The little things that make my life.

 

How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing.
