Today was a very special day…the birthday of the one I love!
If only she was feeling better…sigh, such is life.
I think we had a pretty good, low-key day though.
Bagels for breakfast — always yumm 🙂
I shoveled afterwards — got about another inch overnight so about three inches total…as I was shoveling the sun was out and it was melting it all upon itself making it VERY heavy to shovel…not as bad as the last one, but still, heavy. I was a sweaty mess when it was all done.
A nice hot shower to follow.
Then…PRESENTS!!! Kimm liked everything she got — a pair of sneakers (really cool blue and pink), two books (The Storyteller and Orphan Train) and a DVD (The Intern) — all things that had been on her list. But then I also got her a really cute bird coffee mug that she really loved! It is so nice to be able to surprise someone with something 🙂
Lunch was simple — saltines and Ginger Ale for her, cheese sandwich, bugles and a Reese’s miniature for me.
Napping and reading afterwards.
Then another trip to Stop and Shop to try and get some better cold medicine for her. HOPEFULLY some of the stuff I got will help.
Dinner was simple but good — veggie burger and tator tots. Followed by a slice of Carvel ice cream cake…gotta love them chocolate pieces in the middle!
And now relaxing before watching a Blacklist. Then work for me…two on.
I can’t wait until we can celebrate her birthday when she is actually feeling better and can BREATHE!
Meditations from the Mat (Day 32)…
~~asteya (non-stealing) puts our faith into action
~~are we willing to give up all for the pearl that is our spiritual growth??
~~each theft we are saying, “my God is not”
~~we must say in each moment, with each thought, word and deed, “my God is”
Things making me happy today: my sweetie’s birthday — watching her open her gifts and blow out her candles, beautiful blue sky with white puffy clouds, cuddling under a blanket
