Perfect Day

Considering what a foul mood I was in for most of the week, I'm surprised today turned out so well.

-Chuckles let us sleep in until 8 AM. This whole week he was up at 6:00 - every morning, without fail.

-I made Charlie oatmeal for the first time. As Charlie tries new things, and in an effort to face up to my food phobias, I try each new thing with him. So today I tried oatmeal too. Meh.

-I had time after my shower to put my strawberry body butter on my legs.

-We walked to the farmer's market and got some yummy produce. At one point, we were talking to a lady who sold us some satsumas, and I thought, "Hey, we're talking a person who had some involvement in growing this food." In a world that continues to become more depersonalized, this made me feel pretty awesome.

-On our way home, we stopped at a hall-in-the-wall Mexican food place and had lunch. I wanted to make sweet sweet love to the green salsa. I tried guacamole for the first time. Again, meh.

-I made Charlie bananacado (avocado + bananas), and it was pretty obvious that if he were old enough to have a sex drive, he would have been wanting to make sweet sweet love to it.

-Mandy came over and gave me a keychain she made for me. (Love her!) We went out for a bit, finally ending up at the new cupcake store in town. I had a red velvet cupcake that I wanted to make sweet sweet love to, but I decided not to because the green salsa's feelings were at stake.

-Roy and I took a walk up the mountain near our house. We would have made it to the top if my bladder hadn't felt like it was going to explode.

-We went to my mother-in-law's house to use her bathroom and hang out.

-Back at home, I steamed and pureed the pound of green beans that I had purchased at the farmer's market. I ate strawberries and listened to Fleet Foxes while doing so. Chuckles will have plenty of green beans to chow down on next week.

-Charlie, Roy, and I played together until it was time for Charlie's bath and bedtime.

-Charlie went to sleep easily, and Roy and I began tackling our organization project. We'd gotten really behind but were able to do two weeks worth of organizing in one night.

And now, I'm off to crawl into bed with a book...

(Thanks for your comments on my last post. I made the header a bit smaller so that visitors to the site can see right away whether there's new content. Now I feel that the header is kind of naked, so I'm going to be working on making a new header that will fill up the space a bit better. So time consuming! Especially because I'm such a rookie at this stuff. But if you have any ideas or suggestions, let me know. The date on my posts has gone MIA, even though they should be there. I've tried a million things. It's annoying. But I'm stubborn. I will figure it out, dammit.)

I loved this!

Glad you had a great day. It's good to have those now and again. (Me, I've been bogged down in deadlines and headcolds, so I'm just getting caught up with blogs. Before my breakfast. Which is oatmeal, by the way. I actually love oatmeal. But I use the hearty "old-fashioned" kind, not the quick or instant ones. It makes a difference. Not that you asked.)
