On a Whim

Wednesday, April 30, 2014


Just thoughts trickling in my head.

Roving, wondering, whispering, quiet, deep and yet tranquil.

My day was good.

I worked out. I cleaned house somewhat. (Hey, it's a big job when you fall way behind). I laughed with my kids and did a really spontaneous thing. I took them to a town 30 minutes away and had supper.

My kids were laughing and completely surprised and so happy to be doing something else besides just staying home.

My neighbours put the thought into my head. They had just taken out their motorcycles and mentioned to me that they were going to another town for a cup of coffee. So, I went into the house and told the kids what they were doing. The funny thing was, was that my DD1 said that perhaps we should go for a drive and have doughnuts. I said, okay, let's go.

DD1 burst out laughing and couldn't stop and then realized I was serious.

Let's go.

All my kids scrambled to get there shoes on and away we went. They were so excited. WE WERE OUT OF THE HOUSE!!!!! Yay!!!!!

A beautiful evening, and a wonderful drive.

A scenic drive home on country roads, for something different.

It was great.

Where was my husband during all of this? He's working 1.5 hours away and won't be home for the week. So it's just me and the kids.

Who knows what tomorrow will bring?

    That's great! Sometimes we need to go out and smell the pavement lol. Who knew that something so off schedule and unplanned, spontaneous could be so fantastic. Not only did your children appreciate it, but you got the best part of it all. You got to see the beautiful scenery and also enjoy the happiness radiating from your children. BTW thanks so much on your comments on my blog. I need to work on seeing what others see in me, I really took your words to heart, thank you! emoticon
