Today was a good day.

Today was a good day. 

I woke up to the sun shining into the room.

The rays slinked through the glass in the window and poured through the cracks in the closet doors.

I readied myself, ate a large bowl of cantaloupe, and drank a tall burgundy glass of pomegranate/blueberry juice.

Driving down the streets of Salina was as normal as it could be, staring through the dusty and next-day-rained-on windshield.

I arrived at my mom’s alteration shop.

I sewed. 

I worked on jean hems and pant hems today.

I made a deposit for the shop.

I even got a little extra time to work on a project of my own: A tube top!

Mom and I had bought some cheap stretchy fabric at Joanns a few days ago and I finally had a free minute today to work on some tube tops that will accommodate my ever growing belly. 

Towards the end of the day I worked on one of the three anticipated tube tops: The Kermit green one. 


It was the end of the day, otherwise I’d have worn it the rest of the day! I’ll wear it tomorrow.

Mom, Laura, the kids, and I went to Hobby Lobby and then Sams to get some groceries. I realized something about parenting while out with my nieces and nephew.

I am uptight.

I am gonna have to learn to relax. 

After the stores, mom and I went to the prescription shop to find me a maternity support belt for running.

In the parking lot of the pharmacy was this cute little wheeler.



That’s how a man taking a picture of it and I described it to each other. Cute. 


Either way, we finished and mom and I ate at Guiterrez Mexican Restaurant for dinner. 

I came home and sat at the table with my computer. I opened it up and realized how much I hate to just sit on the computer.

I shut the laptop lid and I grabbed my worn black flip flops.

I decided to venture into the real world! *GASP*

I went to the backyard to play with the pups. All 4 of them! 

I went through the gate and was greeted by wagging tails and tongues sticking out.

After petting the pups and realizing my parent’s dogs hadn’t been brushed in a while, I grabbed the dog brush and went to work! Oh they loved it. They leaned into the brush and came back for more brushing. 

When I finished brushing half the dogs out, revealing a small fluffy inanimate rabbit, I decided to spray the dogs down.

I grabbed the hose and sprayed Pax down. She jumped and tried to bite the water. I love it!

After getting all muddy there, I watered all the plants in the yard. 

As I was watering, I paused to listen to the sounds around me.

I heard locusts hissing and whirring.

I love hearing the locusts sing.

I watched the water hit the dirt and spray drops of mud all over the concrete. I realized how much I love being out there in the evening watering plants and listening to nature. This is why I would love a back porch and a small garden of my own. 

Today was a good day. 

I look forward to trying out my support belt while running tonight . 

I have so many things I am thankful for! Little one moved a lot today. I accomplished a lot at work. I came home to a loving and happy husband. 

Life is good.
