I peeled off my winter coat, threw it on the floor, and jumped onto the couch. I sighed as I snuggled up next to him. The 25 pound cat nestled his way between us and I felt the wet nose of a pup brush against my foot.
We needed it. Just a day of doing “nothing really”.
A day to be thankful to the One who provides.
I seem to thrive against deadlines, to-dos and daring the clock to race me to the finish line. Sure, I space out quite frequently as I take creative brain lapses and imagine myself becoming an in demand destination wedding photographer jetting off to Barbados with a Johnny Deppsecond shooter sidekick, but that probably isn’t the same thing. Oh, by the way, did you know that half a million people visit Barbados each year? Sign me right up!
So, we did it. Yoons and I rested on Saturday. We ate out three times, we walked the family dogs, and we celebrated with a friend who inadvertantly set her hair on fire with a birthday cake candle. (cat-like reflexes saved her, so don’t you worry).
It was a peaceful, and mostly uneventful end to the week:
Last week Jen had the fantastic idea of going to Ken’s Bakery to review her images. Oh my good …grief. I have consumed 3.5 salted caramel coffee macaroons since, and I took Yoons there Saturday morning for Stumptown coffee and yet another macaroon. If you have a sweet tooth lurking between every molar and canine like I do, you might want to avoid this spot. Just a disclaimer.
Must love dogs. If I were creating a dating ad for myself, that would probably be one of the first things you would read.
My weekly inspiration:
-The War of Art: I finished the book the same day I bought it. If you are a creative type, read it. Seriously. Read it.
-Love this quote:
It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.Ralph Waldo Emerson
This quote goes along with a personal goal I have this week. Will share more about it soon.
Here’s to a happy Sunday and a week filled with opportunity!
