I got home early today. Theatre is over for the year, which means I get home before six, and today was glorious because we made it home before 4:00. My momentum from the day was still going, and I made sure not to waste it. I swept floors and shook blankets. I tidied bathrooms and vacuumed rugs. Just some little things to make the house feel a bit more zen.
I had big plans for dinner too. My favorite plants are all plated up. I can smell all the smells from my oven as the sweet potatoes, cauliflower, and broccoli roast. There is quinoa on the stove with a bit of salt and olive oil, along with white rice steaming away in the rice cooker. I even used my rinsing water, from the rice, to give my kitchen plants for a big soak.
It feels good to be productive and not come home beyond the hope of attending to anything but a meal. I'm hoping I can get home early a few nights a week before school is out so I can enjoy some of my evening time with good food and a tidied house.
Inspiring! Such healthy habits, and undertaken with joy, not duty. You really made the most of a little extra time. And I have to say, go back and re-read the quote for this Tuesday from TWT. You nailed it!ReplyDelete
So happy you got more hours in your day and were surrounded by your favorite plants!ReplyDelete
I could use a little of your inspiration/motivation! It was a day of "planty!"ReplyDelete
Oooh, I can smell the fresh vegetables roasting and feel the delightful taste that awaits! And it seems like with summer on the way, the drifting days are getting closer and closer!ReplyDelete
