On Wednesday, I was able to finish my workday by noon. Belle was at school, Shawn
was working, and our babysitter texted me to say that Brees had just gone down for her
nap after a cranky morning. I decided to blow off a few hours before picking the girls
up, skipping my afternoon workout and instead grabbing a chai tea latte and a new
book. After sitting outside and enjoying a few chapters, I headed to my favorite nursery
and walked around, admiring the beautiful plants, talking to the sweet little old lady who
runs the register, comparing notes with the other costumers about our gardens so far. I
took my sweet time, picking up an aloe vera plant and some extra mulch. After
browsing through each and every aisle, I sat on the swing outside the nursery and caught
up on a few phone calls, chatting with my girlfriends, catching up on life. It was such a
nice afternoon, so lazy and slow, so simple. I drove home with my windows down,
Of Monsters and Men blaring on the stereo. I was so refreshed and excited to get home
to my family. And so thankful for a quiet, peaceful afternoon to myself.
