a day in the life

Well, from work at least. Last year, this only happened a total of a handful of times. When I did have a day off, I made sure to cram in a lot! See here. This year is different. I’m beginning to realize just how important it is to check out from life, and to spend the day doing whatever you like and with whomever you like.

This day in particular was no different. I mostly spent it drinking coffee, baking, cleaning, going to the gym, and blogging a little. Yes, I said blogging. I can’t completely ignore the world, now can I? By the time the evening rolled around, everyone was warm and cozy inside our home. It was cold again that night, so having a roaring fire on our tiny electric fireplace and snoring dogs at our feet made us all feel wonderful. I wish that at least one day a week could be a designated time-out day. Who would we talk to about starting that?

hello day off.

a few weeks ago, an event occurred that only comes around a few times a year. i had the day off!!!

that’s right, friends. with currently having 4 jobs, i work everyday doing at least 1 of them. just to make my life a little busier, i also have this wonderful blog and ballet twice a week. but i would not change a thing. :-)))

very much by accident, my husband had an e.d.o. that happened to fall on a day that i was not scheduled to work. i decided to keep it that way, and to just have a fun day filled with family, love, and much randomness. here is a peek into my day of leisure:

7:00 am. wake up to this beautiful sight in our little loft. 

7:15 am. take truman capote for his morning run.

8:00 am. get ready for the day.

9:00 am. drive to my parent’s acreage to pick up my mum (she currently has a broken foot). first, though, i make a stop at tim hortons to pick us up some coffee. i am canadian, after all.

1:00 pm. i come back into town, pick up my husband, and we are off to the university to meet my step-dad. it’s time for a new computer.

2:00 pm. after picking out a bigger and better macbook, we come back home and take holly and truman for another walk. we are thoroughly enjoying this indian summer.

3:00-9:00 pm. finally in the house and settled, we relax, have supper, tidy up, watch a few episodes of our shows, and go for the last walk of the night.

9:00 pm. now my favorite part of the weekend; renting a movie. (we choose the dvd v/h/s. it is so good!)

12:00 am. after returning home and watching the film, it is now bedtime for everyone in little green. what a wonderful day. :-)

have a beautiful and relaxing weekend, y’all!
