a happy little walk...


i've wanted to make more of an effort to have some days that we just meander... 

spend time in the backyard...

sit in the grass...

read some books...

go for a nice walk.

so often, it seems like our days get filled.  with outings.  with work.  with appointments.  

we've finally gotten to a point where we have less to do.  it's funny that i feel like the only way to have some lazier days is to actually plan for them.  

today, we had nothing to do.  so, when we finally got around to it, we went for a nice walk.  i thought we'd just stroll, but leo wanted to go to the library, so that's where we headed.  

i put a couple pieces of chalk in a pouch and brought it along.  while we walked, leo and i started to talk about all the things that make us happy.  we'd stop along the way, and draw some pictures of the things we'd talk about...


a fire truck... with a firefighter...



trees... and a green bush...




a few of his friends...



some grapes...




which we then sat down to eat :)



it was a nice, leisurely walk.  

what's funny, is that the next couple of hours were not so nice.  i was tired... and therefore, a little less patient than usual.  and leo was grumpy... and filled with strong emotions...

during the walk back home, i was anxious to get back.  i just wanted to take a nap.  we both needed it.  badly.  

meanwhile, while my frustration was bubbling...

i'd stumble on those pictures. 

and as much as i wanted to wallow in my grumps, it was hard when every few blocks, i'd see another picture...

of the simple things that make us happy.

  5. i wrote in this book and then the journal. we walked up here along underwater highway (see sidebar) and had a whistle while sitting under one of those painted grapevines that you see everywhere in New Orleans... and then the rest of our walk was under a canopy of trees.i started my day with coffee, iced tea and berries for breakfast.....homemade blueberry muffins...mmmm! i'm still in awe that there are sips from a can. if you like to make your own simple breakfasts (without weeks-long waits) , this is one - 3 ingredients or less...
