TODAY IS JUST THAT KIND OF DAY...

5.20.2013

 photo wooden_zpsb5115d1d.jpg ...where you can roam around the house wearing pajama bottoms + a tank.  it is my time to do nothing, except enjoy the quiet, simple moments of the day.  ever have days like this where nothing seems to matter?  you're ok with not getting dressed, no makeup or fancy clothes needed.  just a good facial mask and my hair tousled about (of which i will fix later). but until then...

the hubby is outside cutting grass.  bless this man as he keeps our yard looking so nice.  the dog is being a dog. up to her usual and my guess is when i make my way downstairs, there will be another rope toy demolished.  colorful strings will await me while she naps on her bed. in her mind, it's an artistic expression and her creative right. and when she finally awakens, there will be a look of innocence on her face. if words became hers, she would explain a stranger entered our home while she was sleeping and managed to create such mess. that would be her story and i'm sure she would stick to it.

as for me, i'm choosing this time to write.  to put together a little post about a whole lot of nothing.  and if anything, just to connect with you. the windows are open (as i'm trying to enjoy whatever is left of spring) before the heat + humidity decide to appear.  can you tell i'm not a fan of summer?  my apologies to anyone this may offend, but i'm in love with fall and of course spring.  so even though i'm happy the sunshine is here, i do not look forward to my endless battle of trying to stay cool during the blistering heat. thank goodness for popsicles, ice cream, and days like today.  where i can just stay inside, hang out with you a bit, and let the world pass by.

today is just that kind of day...

  1. I love lazing about in my p.j.'s before I have to do anything. The quiet moments before the busy day starts is wonderful. I like warmer weather, but I don't like sweating or being too hot that I can't wear anything without melting. But, after a long winter and rain, I am thankful for the sunshine. I will just have to go to the beach ;) I hope you have a great week doll :)

  4. You put together words so beautifully your posts are always a joy to read Chandra! Spring and fall are definitely my favorite as I find winter/summer to be the extremes and I am most comfortable in beautiful transition periods (of hope!)
    Have a wonderful week xo

  5. I'm not a big fan of humidity and heat either. Not offended at all, as a matter of fact I love spring & fall, beginning and end of the two previous seasons. I love simplicity too, that's why I enjoy working from home.

  6. As I sit here on my lunch break - eating alone in my classroom because that's the way I like it, I am a little envious of the pj's & doing what you wanna do attitude....

  7. I love checking in with you, even if your post is filled with simple updates about your lovely little life. Like you, I am not a fan of humidity or heat. Sounds like you are enjoying every last bit of spring that you can. And, I always love hearing about your sweet dog.

  8. You're gonna love retirement. I stay in a t-shirt and pajama bottoms more often than not doing pretty much whatever my little heart desires. I do try to get myself together in time to get some dinner on the table for the not-yet-retired husband.

    I'm guessing you don't live in New York. We have barely gotten to nice warm days here in the north country. With such a short summer, I've never had time to develop a dislike for heat and humidity.

    Loved this post!

  9. I love to be able to just roam around the apt in pajamas not doing anything. My boyfriend will be out of town this weekend so I can really just lounge around with no disturbances.

  10. I think after the craziness of the weather and just life in general, we all need one of those days... So glad you got to have yours.

  11. You make "a whole lot of nothing" seem so beautiful. I'm also a fan of Fall, even Winter when it first arrives. But to be honest, I have been waiting impatiently to put on my bathing suit and prance around on a beach. (:
