Yesterday I must have won some karmic lotto, because it was simply the greatest day. First of all, it was Friday, which honestly used to mean more to me when I was working full time, pre-pregnancy but it was still Friday; secondly, I felt physically great, and walked a great walk early in the morning; thirdly, met a great friend for coffee mid-morning…a friend who really knows how to get me going spiritually and emotionally; I found some amazing finds at the Jerusalem Grocery Store, an Arabic/International grocery store which ALSO sells GERMAN products!! Kinder Bueno, Jacobs coffee, Maggi spice mix, anyone?? I also got a variety of Arabic teas, soaps, soft drinks and pickled veggies there, too.
I made lunch and took it to Christian at his place of work, and we enjoyed a wonderful picnic meal outside in the gorgeous sunny-but-cool autumn El Paso weather; we spent a lovely and lazy afternoon cuddling and laughing when he returned from work; I had a great nap…
But I really, really wasn’t expecting to wake up to a gift from Christian waiting for me… my favorite orchids sitting for me at my computer table (by the way, the photo shows our high chair for Hannah, NOT my computer table, lol), with a note that simply said thanks for all the little things I do… they’re not taken for granted… AND the smell of schweinebraten, sauerkraut and semmelknodeln cooking in the little kitchen. Man, was I still asleep????
The best tasting dinner to end the best-ever day.
It isn’t often I have a day I can look back on and say, “Yeah, that was a perfect day in every way.” This was one of them.
Do you remember your last “perfect day?” Tell me about it! What made it so special for you?
