Life is in the details


There’s a lot going on at work, that when I get home, I tend to vegetate.

Last night, I was desperately looking for an excuse to go outside. It was a beautiful day, and I felt that I would be wasting the good weather running on my treadmill. So I decided to go over to Dominion to buy some bread. I must have looked extra perky, because the Dominion cash guy, taken in my overzealous ‘I love this weather smile,’ said, now your the most beautiful girl I’ve seen in a long time.

And frankly I was beautiful, because I was ecstatically happy, living in the moment of great weather and enjoying my fresh bread.

I think took a long stroll down bayview, at 8pm, debating whether or not to envy the people with dogs on a leash and hubbys in hand. I decided against the envy, because my hand felt light and free, free to swing at my side, or grab a menu……free to have tequila induced Fridays and lazy stay in bed Sundays…

Life’s in the details, and I hope your enjoying your details right now.

I do it all the time Cranky. Enjoy the details. And sometimes I get so into it that I don't want the day to end.

Is the bread freshly baked and still hot? Man dat must be something with some butter on it. Or cheese.

CP...remember it is sex in bed on Sundays...not a lazy stay, although i guess it could be lazy stay in bed in between sex...

I remember going to Cascade in Hanover (where my mother was born) and stopping to buy hot bread at a bakery on the way.....The bread would be finished by the tiem we got there (about a 25 min drive) ...ah the simple things in life!!

Good post....
