It is Saturday and I am much relieved. This week has been crazy for me with my altered work schedule. I feel like I have not been home at all. I love Saturday mornings, a morning I can take my time and drink two cups of tea. A morning I don't have to rush off to do anything, or drive anywhere.
The weather is coolish out. Not exactly cool but I felt a slight chill when I took Max out this morning. It will warm up all to much during the day, but at night I can have my windows open. Ah for a little bit of snow to make the season feel more festive.
When I walked outside I was shocked to see my cactuses in bloom. Yes it is December and this is when they should be blooming, still it took me by surprise. This little one was saved from my parents porch just over a year ago. It was just one small dried up sprig and was left for dead. I repotted it, and actually watered it and look what has happened. I can't tell you how thrilled I am to see how much it has grown and to see how happy it is.
Somehow I missed the berries on my holly tree. Where there many or few this year? Did the birds eat them? I have no idea, seems I have been missing big chunks of time in my life with work and Little Buddy worries.
Today I will try to take a moment to just breathe. To take a deep breath and appreciate my home and family. To try and not get worked up about the fast approaching holiday and all that still needs to be done to make it a success. All I plan to do besides clean up here and there is take one little boy to soccer early this afternoon. I plan on being thankful he will be back out on the field and will be thrilled if he even kicks the ball once. There is no game it is just Little Buddy and his helper Katie running around after him trying to keep him engaged. I bet Katie needs a nap after she goes home from volunteering with my boy.
I plan on working on this cowl for a friend. It will be part of her Christmas present, but there is still plenty of time to get it done. Tomorrow will be about some shopping and starting re-evaluations for work, but today is about rest. Resting my weary brain and frankly my weary body.
And of course listening to this little one of mine talk and play. He really is such a light in my life and I am so thankful he is doing better.
