This was the post I began when I woke up. I typed up a sweet little list of what we intended to get to today, as seen below. I was really looking forward to this cloudy, quiet Friday to nest inside a bit. The list I made for you this morning follows:
Today we are…
Seeing off my mom who's been here for the week.
What does Friday bring to your world?
And then… the real today happened. Yes, Sage made the butter (and the biggest mess my kitchen has seen in three months.) I made the chai. And folded some laundry. I picked out fabric for some homemade unders for my kids.
But then the toilet overflowed. In a big way. Like inches of standing water on the tile floor before anyone noticed. And when the "WATER EVERYWHERE!!!" call came down the hall, Pete and I were examining a red bullseye rash on Lupine (Lyme disease). So there were hours (literally) of toilet water clean up. And after that for the first time in ages we found ourselves at the doctor and then the pharmacy for antibiotics. Really? Antibiotics? For Lupine?
What a day.
So yes, sometimes the day (or the week) doesn't shake out quite like you expect. Sometimes everything goes haywire and you just have to ride it out.
Today is one of those days over here.
I'm always on the search for the silver lining. But even that can be hard to discern sometimes. So I keep finding myself with the Rescue Remedy in one hand and chai in the other, wondering what exactly the silver lining is.
Hmmm… on the upside the bathroom is now really, really clean, as is the basement underneath said bathroom.
I am officially calling a do-over on today. Contemplating putting on my pajamas (not the pair I had on for clean up this morning however) and pretending it's 7 AM again. I am also hoping for some serious quality time with my sewing machine and perhaps an unreasonably large bowl of homemade sorbet.
Yes. That might help.
Love to all.
