Y'know when sometimes you finish your morning plans and then you hit your afternoon plans and by the time you get to your evening plans, you just want to crawl into your PJs and not have to smile and socialize anymore? That was yesterday. After a beautiful morning full of laughter and washing windows with my friend Amanda during our community workday and then a gorgeous afternoon of raking leaves for a gentleman preparing to sell his mother's house, I was exhausted. If you know me, passing up playing board games with my friends does not happen very often, but last night, it happened. I peeled off my layers and snuggled into sweats to spend a quiet evening with myself. After writing out my mom's favorite passion cake recipe for my friends who requested it last week, I pulled out the starburst mini to finish up the quilting. Three episodes of TV, a bowl of cereal, and the end of a Michigan football game later, I crawled into bed with a nicely trimmed mini quilt staring back at me from my desk. Mm the cozy feeling of quiet success.
Today, with my quilting mostly done for the weekend, I am working on grad school applications. As recompense for spending my Sunday on school work, I am enjoying a warm cup of chai tea next to a crackling fire. The sun is shining outside, and I put on my favorite wool socks with leggings and a soft sweater. Caribou Coffee is humming with the relaxed traditions of post-church coffee. And I am content. Right now, this is exactly where I'm supposed to be.
