Sunday Contements – A little late, but…

It’s 10PM on Sunday evening. Normally I get this post written by 11AM, 2PM at the latest, but that just wasn’t happening today.  We had a very busy morning, with appointments that required we be up and out the door at the crack of dawn.  Then afterward, since I didn’t feel well, I laid down and went to sleep for a bit.  Four hours later…

Anyway, it’s been a muddled day, and now I have a sick child on top of everything, to boot.  But still, I have that usual peaceful easy feeling, and here are the reasons why.

The Hubster – I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. I love that man of mine.  He knew I didn’t feel well, and so he shooed me to bed for a few hours after we got back home and let me sleep until I woke up on my own.  He took care of Princess, who was sick, and Pixie, who’s been a little stinky fart for the last few days, pulling every trick in the book when she thinks she can get away with it (she can’t!).  Why Hubster is still married to me after all these years, I’ll never know.

Cooking – It’s something I don’t do often enough.  I stink at cooking on a daily basis, prefering to spend an hour or two on Sunday prepping dishes for the coming week.  This afternoon, after I woke up, I made New England baked beans, apple caramel nut bread, and pumpkin souffle.  The pumpkin souffle is something I make every year after the annual pumpkin carving party we go to.  My souffle wilted shortly after I pulled it out of the oven, but we weren’t going to eat it until tomorrow anyway, so that’s okay.  It’ll still taste good. I already know the bread is mouth-wateringly perfect, and the beans seem to be coming along just fine (they’re finishing up in the slow cooker as I type this). This week will be a week of good meals!

Challenges – I set them for myself, and I strive to conquer them.  I busted ass the last two weeks getting the new site set up, and while it’s not perfect yet, it is functional and I think it looks pretty good.  I’m giving myself a pat on the back for a job well done.

Doodling – I managed to squeeze in a bit of drawing time this week, and turned out some fun doodles.  I want to fill up a sketch book with all sorts of kookie drawings.  Wonder how far I could get toward that goal by New Year’s?

Disney movies – I know you all know I’m no fan of Disney princesses, but today a shelf-full of DVDs kept the Princess quiet and content on the couch when she needed to get some rest.  She’ll get more movies tomorrow, in between naps and being read to and comforted.  My girl feels pretty poorly, but so long as she’s got one of her favorite flicks to watch, she’s okay, and when she’s okay, I’m okay.

And that’s it for this week.  Hopefully next Sunday I’ll be back to my usual routine, but even if I’m not, it’s all okay anyway.  Night ya’ll!
