good day

this weekend we didn't have a lot going on, which was actually a pretty nice change of pace. we had plenty of time to be at home and be together and just hang out.  there was a touch of chill in the air - not enough to warrant turning on the heat - but just enough to open the windows and doors and let the awesome breeze blow through and circulate all the dust and cat hair it could find.  

sunday just felt like a really good day. alex had a friend sleep over on saturday night, and i loved sipping my coffee on sunday morning to the sounds of their ornery giggles in the next room.  i really cherish those moments when we can just be in our home.  it was relatively clean, dinner was mostly planned and we had nowhere in the world to go.  i didn't think it could get any better, but then, out of nowhere, my friend emily dropped by with two insane floral arrangements for us to enjoy.  and you know how i feel about flowers;  i completely freaked out and proceeded to do a leg kick that hasn't seen the light of day in a good 12-13 years.  but for the rest of the day i was annoyingly giddy anytime i walked into that room.

at one point in the day, alex was working with evan on a project and she started typing with her fingers on home row.  we were kind of flabbergasted by this and it made me realize all the things that kids learn and do in those minutes and hours when we are away from them. even when there are a million other things going on, these little amazing things are happening whether i have the time to notice them or not.  it wasn't a huge thing, but it was this skill that she has now and it really struck a chord with me.  sometimes all you need is a little break in the madness to stop moving and take in everything that is going on around you. 

in the words of ice cube, i gotta say, today was a good day.  
i may or may not have pulled a hamstring, but that's neither here nor there. 

how was your weekend?  i hope it was as relaxing and refreshing as ours.
