I have to admit that today was a bit of a milk dud! I went to a drive-by birthday party (the new normal way to celebrate), and took a long drive in the countryside. I needed to clear my head. Too many thoughts these days! Sometimes, you just want to have a regular Sunday, complete with coffee and slippers. I am trying to get settled into this new life of ours, but it’s when I leave the house, and see empty streets and closed stores, it becomes difficult to process. Here’s the thing, I wouldn’t mind my Sunday coffee and slippers if I had a choice on whether I wanted to be in or out for the day. I know it sounds weird, but give it some thought for a second. Choosing to be at home when you know the world is going on around you, is so much sweeter than having no other choice than being home.
However, when I think about what is going on in the hospitals at this point, I sip my coffee in silence. We are in the middle of a crisis, so I will suck it up:) Homesense being closed indefinitely is not the worst that could happen to me. So, I went for a drive with the kids and the hubby, and saw farms and stone cottages that made me all warm inside. The countryside is still beautiful even in the midst of all this mess. I only considered sharing pictures with you right before I sat at the computer this evening, I apologize. I didn’t even bake my scones (but I will definitely do that sometime this week). I have to say that it has been one of those “off” days, but I’m sure you all know what I mean. I’m picking up the pieces of today to make a better tomorrow. The kettle is calling me, as well as a good book. Happy Sunday everyone!
