Yesterday was a good day.
A very good day.
A day that brought an unexpected period of time all by myself.
I keep a mental list of all of the things I want to do if I the stars align perfectly and I get a few hours to myself. Things like...start seeds for the Fall garden, sew new throw pillow for the living room, straighten the pictures in the guest room. You know...those important little things that just never get done because you are too busy being busy.
Last Saturday morning, S announced that he and the boys were going to Busch Gardens for the day and I was not coming with them. He knows what a homebody I am and how I really don't like places with too many people, food that costs way too much especially on a 109 degree day.
So how did I spend my day?
- breakfast, zucchini bread with chocolate chips, while I contemplated peeling the rest of the peaches and catching up on a little blog reading.
-I got a few jars of peach butter jarred up and added to the pantry, here is the recipe I used. Easy is an understatement people!
- I watched the tomatoes ripen in the window, did a little more reading, and apparently spent way too much time looking at vintage inspired boys rooms
- because, then I got a wild hair to repaint the boys' bedrooms
both of them
- I am loving the results. It isn't a huge color change, but there's nothing like clean, freshly spackled and painted walls. I'll show you the full update when I finish getting the new shelves up and Im excited about a little swimming inspired art piece Im working on for above Ian's bed.
What would you do if you had a day to yourself?
