"Life really is made up of the ordinary moments. A cup of hot coffee. A satisfying dump. A syrupy kiss from your kid as they head out the door. Changing the sheets. Putting dinner in the crockpot. Adding finishing touches to a report. Lighting a pumpkin sugar Yankee candle and letting it burn all day, filling the house with sweet aroma and covering up the odor of the satisfying dump.
This is precisely why I like to do my “day in the life” posts. Not because my life is so exciting. It is not. But, because these posts represent the every day wonderfulness of a life full of the small, exquisite details. All of them imperfect and perfect at the same time, if you know what I mean."
(I hope to one day be as popular, influential, and well-versed in bathroom humor as the Other Beth is.)
In the meantime, here's my day in the life:
I don't start my "day job" until 10am, but I wake up at the same time as Hubby. Normally I use the morning hours to get in a run, lifting, yoga, or just a walk around my neighborhood.
|"Time to make the donuts!"...or something.|
If you don't understand the reference,
you're probably too young to be reading this blog.
|Freshly brewed Community Coffee with chicory --|
one of the things I love best about the south.
It takes at least one cup o' joe to get me out the door, and another one before my brain is functional enough to start work for the day. (Another clever reason for the early morning wakeup time!)
Speaking of work, I work the "day job" from my home office. Today I also was informed of my spring teaching schedule (that's the "other job"). My teaching schedule conflicts with one conference I was supposed to attend, but not with any running nights. Hooray!
|The home office...|
Looking a little messier than usual,
but it was a busy day!
|Peanut being both annoying and adorable all at the same time.|
And there's still yoga to do.
I can't go a whole day without a workout.
That's just crazy talk.
What's your "day in the life" story?
Did you have any perfectly ordinary, but also wonderful, moments today?
