I am overly ambitious and try to get a lot done in one day! I used my new baked doughnut pan (love it!). I still hate laundry... and it's still not done despite my good and best intentions.
The usual conversation between Brian and Scarlet when he went to bed.... a few words, a few puppy kisses, some laughing.... love that evening routine. :)
Playing with Scarlet in the backyard before sunset. She was so happy! Also, seeing Brian when he came home... and stealing a quick kiss while I was on the phone and he was going to bed.
Brian is home at night this week. After a week away for work last week, I am so appreciating him being home tonight... even though I really didn't get any time with him. I'm also feeling lots of gratitude for my family and friends. Keeping track of today I noticed that I talked to both of my siblings by text message, my Mom by text and phone (missed Dad who was late getting home from work today), and a dozen friends via text, Facebook messenger or phone. I'm feeling grateful I have so many awesome people in my life!
