The Husband didn’t go to work today. There was no sickness involved. There was no family emergency. He just needed to re-charge his batteries, so to speak, so he called in to work and we played hookie together. It was magnificient!
The original plan was to go to a movie and then out to Barnes and Noble where a book he ordered came in. Have I ever said “no” to my happy place? No. Unfortunately there wasn’t a movie time that allowed us to get something to eat, watch said movie, go to Barnes and Noble, and then make it home in time for us to watch So You Think You Can Dance. This was fine, though: We made it to get something to eat and go to B&N.
One of the purchases I made today was a daily drawing book for The Husband. He is an excellent artist but, because of work, he has gotten out of creative drawing. This book encourages the owner to draw in it every day. One of the things to draw is ‘a pencil’ and another one I saw said to draw ‘a ton’, which has me a little intrigued.
The reason I got him the book has been me getting back into writing by writing something every day. As I wrote every day, story ideas started coming and my desire to read grew, too. If it worked for me I figured it would work for him, too. I can’t wait to see what he does with the drawing prompts! I think I am actually more excited about the book than he is right now. Hopefully this will change.
It is amazing how wonderful this simple day has been. We have laughed and giggled like teens. Chatted and caught up like best friends. We have found peace just being with each other, and we have missed that because of having to have a job and having a life.
Here is hoping your day has been as great or good as it could possibly have been.
