This picture is where I wish I was sitting this morning! It’s been a pretty gloomy weekend here so far, but today is shaping up to be nicer. Not swimsuit weather, or anything, but nice for March in Philly. All I know is, the sun is out, so I’ll take it!
Yesterday was a bit of a wash… quite literally! It rained all day, and after I got my Try-On Haul up and my email out, I went back to bed. I almost never do that, but I couldn’t get motivated to do anything else, and I guess I needed it because I slept for a few hours. Savannah joined me, and she was so happy to have someone to snuggle up with during the day.
Once I woke up, I knew I needed to get out of the house, so I told Paul we were going out to an early dinner. Fortunately he had nothing else on his agenda… either that, or he knows the sound of desperate woman when he hears it!
Anyway, I got myself ready, and we went out to a nearby grill and wine bar, where we could take our time and spend a few hours catching up. I feel like we always have better conversations when we’re out to dinner than we do if we’re just hanging out at home. Plus, it’s always fun to sit at the bar with some other people and chat with the bartender.
Ours told us he’s from North Africa, and when I asked about the difference between the two French Rosés on the menu, he brought out all 3 for me to try! (I ended up having the Belleruche.)
Other than that, this past week was a bit of a whirlwind. It’s one of those where I can hardly remember what I did, but it was busy. I’ve jacked up my shoulder again, so I fit in a visit to my chiropractor, and I got a fresh mani/pedi, which was much needed. For some reason, my last one didn’t hold up very well. I went for a bright pink this time; I felt like I needed some color in my life.
Savannah went to the beauty shop, as well, and there were some other mundane appointments and time spent working in coffee shops in between. I’ve started bringing my laptop when I’m going to be out and about, and it’s nice to get a change of scenery since so much of my time is spent working alone in my office.
If my life sounds boring, it’s because it is, lol! I feel like so much of my time is spent managing everyone and everything, but when I have nothing on the agenda, I just work or watch TV. That’s why I’m excited to start traveling more.
I never really had the travel bug when the kids were younger, and it’s not like we didn’t go anywhere, but we went to a lot of the same places over and over. Now that everyone is older and more independent, I really want to expand our horizons and see more of our country and the world. I can see why people by RVs!
All that to say, I’d love to hear from you. What are some of your favorite places to visit? Both in the U.S. and around the world? Where do you recommend we go next?
And with that, I’m off to get ready for church. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
