I’m looking forward to this week as 1. we have no wild plans and 2. (because of reason number one) we can just go with the wind! I LOVE hosting and having set events, but there’s something so exciting when you can look at a week and there is promise of impromptu friend visits, surprise play times, and slower days because you have no where to be. In the midst of our “no plan” week, I still have some things that would be nice to get to. Like …
. Planting our garlic bulbs: Matt did an incredible job of building some raised garden beds (for my *hopefully* beautiful companion gardens next year!) and I’d like to dedicate one of them for just garlic. We eat a TON of it, and who knows how well it will take, but what harm is done when you just plant some, eh?
. Planning Hunter’s lil birthday brunch: Mr. Hunter turns THREE in a week and a half … I shake my head in disbelief, how? how? how? He is all about Batman these days and has requested black and yellow balloons. I love how simple things can mean the most.
. Library visit: Since we’ve moved, our ritual library visits have had a sabbatical. Hoping to get down to town to sign up for a library card sometime this week.
. Ladies night: It’s been a while and it so happens that I have a massage booked right before we’re supposed to congregate. The night couldn’t have worked itself out more perfectly.
. Self care: Since our busy bout lately, not only have I gotten out of sleeping patterns (like staying up much too late), but also my work-out routine, and some self-care items. One being, painting my nails. I don’t always have it done but it feels nice and I feel more “feminine” when I do it. Note to self, do before ladies night and after garlic is planted.
. Farm visit: A nearby farm has a “Sunshine Adventure Park” that closes down for the season this week, so I’m thinking one last visit for the year is in order. The boys have a BLAST there and I think we’re really going to miss it being open. If you’re ever in the Calgary/Okotoks area, it’s a must to check out.
. Paint my front door: I have a color picked out and purchased for the interior of my front door. I just may attempt painting it this week … I’m tempted to stay up late tonight to do it (there go my sleeping plans!).
Whatever you may have on your agenda/plate to get done this week … enJOY every experience, deLIGHT in the unique way that life happens are you, aRISE to the challenge in distinguishing the beauty each waking moment brings.
