Although my energy seemed to be completely fizzled out with the end of the workweek, it seemed to rejuvenate on the drive home. I had a whole host of to-do’s by the time I arrived to pick up YaYa.
Our first stop was to the church were we lit candles for Tom and said a few prayers of thanks for another year. I know it’s not quite time but Sundays at the candles always feels rushed. I wanted to allow plenty of time for each of us to take it in however we wished.
We lingered in the church for a bit: admiring the stained glass windows, the wooden pews, and the cross draped in purple.
Back at home, I washed and vacuumed the car, fixed (hopefully) my drip system, and mailed off a couple of bills.
After dinner a friend stopped by and we all played a game of Scrabble. True to form, I scored the lowest amount of points. For some reason, I cannot wrap my head around Scrabble enough to place those high-point words.
In spite of my weak Scrabble skills, I thoroughly enjoyed the game. I especially loved to see YaYa’s focus and determination to win this game. He is a lot like his father.
This weekend is off to a nice start. The pace, relaxed but active, is just right. I’m looking forward to a morning (step-back) run, the Equinox Celebration, time at the beach, and taking YaYa on the “Pizza My Heart” bike ride that he loved to do with his father. I’d welcome anything else happens to fall into the weekend; I’m just not planning for anything more.
Here’s hoping that we all have a great weekend!
