Last week was tough, nothing particularly awful but just one of those patches where I couldn't get enough sleep, enough done, and lots of little things were driving me nuts. Breaking out of a rut is always the biggest challenge for me, so I was determined to start off this Monday on a fresh note.
I pushed aside every obligation and spent the day with my favorite little pal outside, enjoying the cool fall sunshine. We went to our garden plot, picked some veggies and lay in the grass. We played on the swings, buzzed like bumblebees, and collected fallen leaves. It was a perfect day. So perfect that I couldn't stop smiling and I felt completely at peace.
Today was back to chores like waiting for car repairs and battling Red Sox traffic, but luckily I'm still riding high from my Monday... this is going to be a good week!
