Yesterday basically felt like one big sigh of relaxation and goodness. The afternoon started with beautiful spring weather and time in our giant yard/garden. That was good. Nothing like a riding lawn mower and freshly watered plants to make you feel slightly accomplished yet not too worn out.
It’s true that our back yard looks like a drunk person was operating the mower, but I was entirely sober. It’s just that I kept seeing spots that needed a second pass. Or a third or fourth. The nice “stripes” in the grass are kind of like a bee’s flight pattern, with no clear goal. At least the grass is all the same (shorter than before) height!
Then the evening took me to a spot in the woods not too far from our town. With our entire church and possibly a few extra people. And some music. Oh, and really good food.
It looked like this:
The musicians were somewhere behind and to the left of this picture. And yes, I definitely stole the picture from a friend because it was better than mine. You should check out her very awesome blog sometime.
You’ve had those moments that you just want to soak up for a while, right? Well, bluegrass, friends, and barbeque with a view like the one above is enough to get me well past the line of “Can this keep going, please?!” I really can’t think of many better combinations.
So today I’m reliving Sunday a bit in my head. Monday feels surprisingly good through a haze of memories. Sunshine and a grassy hillside. All of the great homemade dessert you can get your hands on. (Sigh.) Nice Monday thoughts, right?
I hope your Monday finds you with excellent Sunday memories, too.
