It's one of those beautiful, sunny winter days that beg for you to come out and explore. While the eastern side is being snowed in (cuddle up with some cocoa and Scrabble away safely, dear ones!) my beloved and I are enjoying a day off.
I stumbled out of bed, hair awry, and together (its funny the things couples can do together) we made a cup of coffee. After omelets and left-over cornbread soaked in milk, we went off for our weekly grocery shopping trip/date. I say date because shopping with Dalton is a lot of fun.
At Aldis, I discovered this yellow primrose for $ .39! What a price for such a beauty! I decided to toss the dying and diseased succulents and planted our new friend in the pretty white pot I bought before we were married. I also gave the last two succulents new homes and moved the trio to the windowsill for fellowship and sunshine -- two things none of us can live without! :)
While the husband watched a documentary and took a midmorning snooze (he's so cute) I've occupied myself by filling out an "intent to graduate" form, checked on favorite blogs, and enjoyed some relaxing, classical music. Later, we may wander out to the library for Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events and explore the river landing we haven't been to yet.
It really is a beautiful day. What is keeping you occupied this fine Tuesday? Whatever it is, I pray that you, dear reader, are filled with beautiful peace and the joy of the Lord.
Love and blessings!
