An Ordinary Day

"I see you, Mummy!"

Today has been something quite rare since my cancer diagnosis: an ordinary day!  Except for the fact that I was home on sick leave on what would have been a working day.  But, today was a drama free day.

I woke up at 8:00 a.m. to call daughter (she had to register for next semester's classes, this morning).  But I went back to bed and slept in until she called me back, at 11:30 a.m.!  I guess I needed the extra sleep!

I took my time waking up.  Such a luxury not to have to rush.  I had a leisurely cup of coffee and went on the computer checking emails, etc.  Later, I made myself a sandwich for brunch, washed the dishes and put away the laundry.  And watched some of my favorite cooking shows on TV.  I don't watch soap operas, but love cooking shows.

In the evening, I went for a walk around the block.  I am trying to make a daily walk a habit.  Ysterday, I went for a longer walk, but today, I just went around the block.  I might do a longer walk, tomorrow; I've invited my cousin to walk with me.

I've spent the rest of the evening on video chat with daughter.  Tomorrow night, she'll be back home and I can chat with her in person.  :)

An ordinary day can be such a welcome blessing.

Today, I am grateful for:

- Everyday blessings

How was your day?  Did you have the blessing of a drama-free, ordinary day? 



  1. What a nice day you had! Drama-free days are the best! :)

    1. Definitely! I've had too much drama recently. Just this morning, for example, I received a phone call notifying me that a dear neighbor had passed. The ordinary days give us a chance to catch our breath.

  2. So proud you had such a lovely drama free day. Those are so nice..
    I had a good day.. I have been painting my bathroom.. And finished up, put things back up. SO nice to get it done.. Feel blessed to have a big job finished.

    1. Judy, I'm sure you'll enjoy having a newly painted bathroom! My whole house could do with a new coat of paint, but it will have to wait.
