A Perfect Day

When I was single, I would long for company and someone to spend my time with. I would have weekends where I wouldn't speak to another person and sometimes not even leave the house. Don't get me wrong, I love Cowboy and living with him and all that that entails. It just seems like, I don't have time to do just what I want to do but today, I did and the best part is that he was a part of the day.

We slept in until about 9am and then it was up for the day. While I gathered up the laundry, he made breakfast of toast and cocoa. I started cleaning the house and spent most of the morning dusting off ceiling fans and everything else that I hadn't had time to do for awhile. Those little things that were driving me crazy.

We then went to meet a guy looking for a Craig's List buy. Not exactly what we wanted and then it was off to Costco. I walked out of there for $60, my lowest total there ever, I think. We even ate hot dogs for $3 total for lunch.

We got my new treadmill moved up to the workout room. I'm so excited, it's like the Cadillac's of treadmills. It is very quiet. I can't wait to try it out.

I got the flower beds cleaned out and leaves raked. I love doing yard work and it felt so nice to be outside working.

Cowboy bought two tennis rackets at a garage sale for $6 and we found a tennis court and played for about an hour. I haven't played for about 30 years. It was fun and I did a little better than I thought I would.

I came home and put a meatloaf that I made earlier this week in the oven and took a bath in the jacuzzi tub. I made some apple crisp and now, I'm kicked back for the evening.

The perfect day. I feel like I accomplished a ton, I'm tired and ready to relax.

I love days like that, when I find time to do those things that get put off time and time again. I've been doing a lot of that myself, but not as much in one day as you did! Can I blame it on the difference in our ages? Yeah, OK, that's it!
