It's only 3:00p right now, but I already feel like today has been very successful.
It all started when I visited with three other girls in my neighborhood. We all got together and chatted while drinking hot chocolate while the kids played. We discussed everything from politics to movies, and I had such a good time. I don't know these girls very well, but I got the impression today that they could become good friends of mine.
My daughter, who is usually glued to my side, did a good job of playing with the other kids. She still wanted me within her reach, but it was so nice to watch her socialize and be around other kids. I've noticed that she gets along better with boys than girls, which I find interesting.
On our way home, we saw another neighbor of ours, an older woman, getting into her car. I said hello to her, and my daughter made sure to introduce herself to her. It was pretty cute.
When we got home, we ran a few errands and then continued enjoying the spring-ish weather by playing at the playground by our house. We live in an HOA community, so the playground is literally steps from our front door. As my daughter played, I read my book and loved the feeling of the warm sun on my arms and face.
For some reason, today was just a day that I needed. A day a little bit out of the norm. A day that was spent being social. A day that was spent in the sunshine.
How did you spend your day today?
