As I sit here this morning, sipping my cafe au lait sprinkled with some pumpkin spice, enjoying a house full of the aromas from the freshly baked banana loaves, one would be inclined to think it a quiet Autumn Saturday morning.
If you were to actually see beyond these few lovely factors, you would see the following:
1 - I ran out of room on my chalk board when I was writing out my list of things to do for today.
2 - I feel like I'm in a foggy fish bowl. It's that humid outside.
3 - The grass must be cut today. Joy.
4 - The entire cast of Thomas the Train is scattered across my living room floor, along with, what seems like, enough track to get me to The Island of Sodor.
5 - There is a trail of oatmeal around my dining room because my son decided it would be fun to play airplane mid-breakfast. I was busy baking and didn't notice.
6 - Not a single step is free of a bag of supplies, still waiting to be put away from Wednesday.
7 - I had to re-spin a load of whites because they wrinkled before I managed to fold them and put them away. I don't know how that happens.
8 - By the time I did actually manage to sit down to my latte, it was cold.
It's a long weekend, and none of that seems to bother me this morning. I have all day to putter around and get things back in perfect order (or as perfect as they will be), before our weekend plans begin.
Any special plans for this last weekend of summer?
