I woke up today in an extraordinary mood – the minute I woke up I reached my arm across the bed and I literally had my whole world in my embrace. My two sleepy sweethearts. H went to the kitchen to brew some morning coffee and Ladybug ran to her room to start bringing all her toys into our bed. I just snoozed and listened to the sweet sounds of the morning. The kitchen radio playing a morning show, Ladybug playing in her room talking and singing to her little toys, Pooch running around the apartment, excited about everyone being up. And that darling smell of coffee… it really has a magical scent, doesn’t it?
When H was out for a morning walk with Pooch, me and my little lady were dancing around in the kitchen and waving excitedly at H when we saw him heading back home. He told us that the view in our window and the one next to us are so incredibly different – here’s us dancing around like two insane people in the kitchen with smiles on our faces and next door, our neighbors (two old maids) are eating their breakfast in silence and glaring angrily at people passing by.
I’m excited about today because for the first time this week, we have zero plans. On Mondays and Wednesdays I have choir practice, Tuesdays are H’s so he works out (this week we went swimming together, Ladybug loves splashing around in the kids’ pool), on Thursdays it’s time for the little lady’s singing lesson in the morning and in the evening I’ve got driving school (feel free to tell me what a good girl I am for finally grabbing that bull by the horns). On Sunday we’ve got moms and kids coming over, we’re going to be doing arts and crafts with our little ones. So I’m really excited about today, because I don’t have to plan ahead for anything – I can just spend the day at home, do all the cleaning I need to do and make sure this place shines and sparkles when I’m done. There’s something I never thought I’d say, but there you have it…
I’m making one of my mom’s (or step dad’s, not sure who I stole it from) recipes for lunch today so I’ll make sure to take lots of pictures (although it’s rainy and grey outside so the lighting isn’t optimal) and post it as an idea for dinner as soon as possible.
Right, back to my coffee cup and second batch of laundry today! This apartment isn’t going to clean itself either. I’ll talk to you soon, sweethearts! 🙂
P.S. Thanks a bunch for speaking your mind in the little polls I created. It’s a huge help! 🙂
