Tonight’s blog post is pretty simple. The past week and change has been very full and busy. All good, there’s just a lot going on in life at present. In one of our team wrap up calls this afternoon we all shared what we were most excited for this upcoming long weekend. While others shared fun activities like camping and kayaking my answer was pretty basic… chillin’.
After work was done I ran to the grocery store to pick up some hornet spray to help Dominic complete his self-set goal of eliminating the three hornets nests at our house. I helped him out, put a few things away, and then it was go time…
I grabbed this beauty that came in the mail today, plopped myself on the couch, brought the dogs up to snuggle with me, and I proceeded to chill and read.
In just a few short pages I was hooked in an awesome story focused on gratitude. I’m sure there’ll be a separate blog post about it in the future after I’ve finished reading it – just a hunch.
After a few chapters I fired up a frozen pizza. Next thing I knew I was still sitting on the couch, eating pizza right off the cardboard atop the coffee table, and still reading. Once the pizza was devoured I cleaned up, sat back on the couch, snuggled with the dogs, and started reading all over again.
Once Dominic was done fighting hornets we went out on the deck and I went right back to reading.
Kicking back on the couch, snuggling in with a great book, and tuning out the rest of the world was exactly what I needed tonight. Throw in the fact that the book is all about gratitude and it became even more perfect.
