wlotus: (Deep Thoughts)
This weekend (all three days of it, as T had Friday off) was about the beauty of ordinariness. We didn't do anything exciting or out of the ordinary, and I did not allow my brain to roam much further than what I was doing right at that moment.

Ordinariness: buying our groceries for the week. While T did our laundry, I took the car and went grocery shopping for the first time in two weeks. Rather than rushing to try to get it over with, I slowed down and savored taking my time. The sunshine was wonderful as I drove to Key Food, then BJ's. I allowed myself to bask in being able to pick up everything we needed, plus a few extras. I returned home to T amidst stacks of clean laundry, plus a sense of accomplishment from getting it all done early. By 3 p.m. our laundry was put away, our kitchen was restocked, and we were both relaxing.

Ordinariness: watching the Superbowl and fixing dinner with T. We had a yummy dinner of spaghetti with meat sauce, laughed over the cute commercials, groaned over the (many) stupid ones, and cheered the Saints on to victory. And since we got our chores done early in the afternoon, we did not have to moan and groan about what we hadn't accomplished in preparation for the week. That made it even better!

Ordinariness: going to my office administration internship tomorrow morning. It isn't glamorous work in any way, but it is useful, honest work, and I am pleased by that.

While I'm on the subject of work... )
