Two Days Down!

Day one of break was pretty exciting as we had a visit from our son and his new girlfriend. It was just what we needed; a reason to clean the house, make a nice meal and keep our minds occupied.

Today was Day 2. Not so exciting. No visits, but I did roast a whole chicken so that I can make soup tomorrow. My daughter and I found ourselves wandering about aimlessly – no purpose. So we made a “break list” in place of a “bucket list” and I’m pretty sure I’m going to need and indefinite amount of time off to accomplish everything on the list! We decided on several card games we want to learn to play, exercise every day with a reasonable weight loss goal, books to read, multiple projects around the house, and hopefully the snow will be gone in time to do some yard work. So I now feel like I have goals to reach and a purpose to this time that has sobeen spontaneously gifted to us. Today I crossed off two things on my list – clean up the garage and transplant a house plant that has been sitting in its new pot for far too long.

P.S. Our son’s girlfriend is very sweet and connected (she manages a candy store – oh there goes my weight loss goal)! πŸ˜‰

I am a third grade teacher in northwestern Wisconsin. I enjoy being outdoors with my family fishing on Lake Superior, snowshoeing, and riding motorcycles. I enjoy my own quiet time in the garden, digging in the dirt, and growing delicious vegetables!

  1. It’s a great idea to make a list of goals of things to do with this extra time – it’s so easy to while away time if you don’t. How great that you can share your goals/”break list” with your daughter.
