Pop a little raisin bread in the toaster oven... outta butter in the fridge... no worries there is ALWAYS a ton in the freezer... I have the BRILLIANT idea to add it to the toaster over for just a few seconds to soften it.
"Bloop Bloop".. you know...the sound FB makes when someone is messaging you... and I'm in a good mood so... I run over just to see who it is and get wrapped up in a conversation... Did you remember I had butter... in the toaster oven??
I didn't lol! Oh yeah... now we have a puddle of butter in our toaster oven... but I don't care because I'm rocking my sweats...I'm not in pain... my house is warm... I have it ALL to myself... I'm playing country music really loud and singing just as loud...and there is snow outside...yes snow... I love snow! It is fresh, new, and bright... it is a gift winter brings us. As it paints the landscape in its white beauty it reminds us to slow down and listen to the soft quiet and the stillness of it all. It reminds me to recharge my batteries. It is something I often forget as a mother and wife. My cup is empty.
Off goes the music.. On goes the coat ... breathe in... breathe out... nose red... cheeks rosy... body full of oxygen. No hurry. No hustle and bustle. Just me and the quiet only an empty house and fresh fallen snow can bring. Breathe in healing .. Breathe out thankfulness...yeah... Life is good.
