The picture above was taken by my husband right outside of our apartment. The cherry blossoms have come to the DC area, and they are so beautiful!
It has been quite a busy weekend (for both work and fun reasons), so I’m really enjoying slowing down and sitting here at Barnes and Noble doing some reading and trip planning. Spending Sunday afternoons in either a bookstore or a coffee shop has become a weekly tradition for us. Actually, before my work hours got longer, we usually did this twice a week. It gives us a chance to get away from the TV screen to talk, read, write, or even get some work done in our favorite environment.
Friday night we took it easy: we walked over to a favorite cafe of ours for dinner and rented a movie from Redbox. Saturday I worked and did taxes while Daniel updated our car registration and inspection. Later, after running more errands, we went out to celebrate a friend’s birthday, and then Daniel convinced me to see the new Captain America, so we did. I’m not sure why I wasn’t that interested in this one – I just felt like I wouldn’t really enjoy it, and I was right. I thought it was kind of boring, but Daniel loved it.
Reading The Cuckoo’s Calling. Slowly but surely!
Writing in my planner. I have not done a lot of planner updating lately, but that’s probably because I have not had a lot to plan. That will all change after 4/15!! :D
Listening to the many background conversations of the people sitting around me. Lots of people come here on Sunday afternoons, and it’s usually a race to get a table.
Thinking that I need to remember what I wrote in this post and stop wallowing in self-pity about stupid things when I am so blessed
Smelling coffee and books. The best smell!
Wishing I didn’t have a huge tax bill to deal with
Hoping to read quite a bit of my book (see Reading above) today because I can’t seem to make much time during the weekdays for reading anymore
Wearing jeans and a t-shirt
Loving seeing so many people sitting and enjoying their books and magazines and conversations this Sunday afternoon
Wanting coffee! Believe it or not, I haven’t had any yet this morning, and the coffee I ordered here is still too hot to drink
Needing to book our plane tickets to Texas in June for our good friend’s wedding!
Enjoy your day!
