A Slow, Soothing Day

Saturday morning I woke up about 7:30. I could hear Megan's excited little voice as she was talking with her Daddy. I laid in bed with a smile on my face as they peeked in and told me they had a surprise.

After a few minutes I started to smell bacon cooking. I walked into the kitchen and Megan told me to go back to bed because it was a surprise. I informed her that I knew what the surprise was because I could smell the bacon. Still she insisted that I leave. When I was called to breakfast this is what greeted me.

Chuck said that it was 100% Megan's idea for them to make breakfast. What a wonderful way to start the day!

Chuck headed out to finish painting the shed. You can see a before picture here.

While he did that I worked on clearing flowers and such away for the winter. I also worked on laundry and did a little cleaning.

I cleaned our bedroom from top to bottom. I cleaned out closets, drawers and even vacuumed under all of the furniture. I will be adding that to my list a little more often! The only bummer is that I ripped the bed skirt while removing it. Off to the mending pile it went. It feels so great to step into a spotless, uncluttered room.

The day was absolutely beautiful! All of the windows were open, the house was quiet and peaceful. I fluttered between puttering inside and out. I recently picked up a couple of things and did a little tweaking.

I don't think this is the permanent home for the blocks, but I couldn't resist putting them out.

Doing little things like this is not something that I always find the time for.

A home cooked meal for the ones I love.

It was the kind of day that sooths and refreshes. Ah! I hope you taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
