Sleep, Sun, and Success

My legs are so pale that if they sparkled, you'd think I'd stepped right out of "Twilight."

It’s Saturday again, the time at which I would normally look back at three beautiful things from the past week. Today was so straight-up lovely, however, that it’s getting the whole post to itself, with apologies to the rest of the week.

1. I slept ridiculously late today – until almost 10:30 in the morning – and it was ah-mazing. Guess I wasn’t joking last night when I said I was tired. Ten hours of sleep will go a long way to getting me back to feeling rested, though.

2. I woke to a gorgeous morning and took my coffee and Kindle out to the back porch, where I stayed for the better part of three hours. I re-engaged with a book that’s been in the partially-read pile for far too long (Ken Dryden’s The Game) while simultaneously getting a bit of sun on my grotesquely white skin.

3. I spent the afternoon glued to the television watching the Caps play in Boston. Though I know it’s not possible that I didn’t breathe for the entire game, it sure felt that way, as each goal for the good guys was matched by one for the Bruins. In the end, the Caps prevailed, and come back to DC up 3-2 in their best-of-seven series. Yippee!

What’s been beautiful in your world today – or this week?

    1. I was smarter than the pediatrician! I brought him in requesting a strep test, was assured it was allergies. He was put on steroids b/c he sinuses were packed so he felt great this morning. He went to tournament today, and returned to the phone message he has strep. Focusing on the silver lining (knowing my son had something more than allergies – he is TOUGH!) and not the next round of strep tests that are in our near future.
    2. Introduced to XMA. Google Spencer Hill.
    3. Thought our planned summer vacation couldn’t happen. It was cancelled. That stress was horrible! Someone was looking out for us, and we will in fact get to go. The joy and relief is awesome!

    1) seeing my son’s team come from behind to win!
    2) seeing my daughter brushing her teeth after lunch, properly caring for her new braces – without me telling her to!
    3) getting to read wordpress while lounging I my comfy room

    1. Finishing at the design center with the interior selections for our new house
    2. New dirt laid in preparation for pouring a new foundation.
    3. Home owners association signing off on the new house plans.

    We are only a couple of weeks from starting the final phase – building our new house. If that ain’t beautiful, I dunno what is.

    Oh, in bonus beautiful, “held by Holtby” has a fantastic ring to it. Let’s go Caps!!!!
