*Wake up at 6:30 a.m. perfectly rested and well after feeling on-the-verge-of-coming-down-with-something yesterday. (Thank you, Benadryl.)
*Welcome the fact that it's a drizzly, chilly day and that the leaves are really starting to change color: fall is truly here!
*Realize that my husband is off work, so there is no need for me to take Jacob to school. #daddyduty
*With a cup of French vanilla coffee in hand, bid them farewell, then settle down on the couch and peruse Pinterest for awhile.
*Inspired by this lettered artwork by Mary Kate McDevitt, decide to try my hand at a fancy pants chalkboard design for the kitchen. In honor of the first day of October...
|Perfect? No. Love it all the same, though.|
*Hang out at home with my husband and do a little crafting. Him: whittle a toy knife. Me: make some fall buntings of burlap, paper, and chicken wire.
*Tidy the house and vacuum so the floor is clean underfoot. (Clean house = happy momma!)
*Rock this tabata workout, along with the Monday series of these strength/cardio exercises, and feel both strong and pleasantly tired afterwards.
*Bake two loaves of pumpkin-chocolate chip bread. Mmmmm...
*Make a paper bag haunted house with Jacob after homework is finished.
*Catch up on the season premieres of Once Upon A Time and Call the Midwife.
*Feel thankful for having an unexpectedly wonderful and ordinary day at home.
