At the end this particular Saturday, there was a hint of disappointment as I reflected on my day. I hadnt done anything super awesome. Well nothing that immediately stood out at least...
The boyfriend had to work super early (830 is super early to start work on Saturdays, in my mind) so I woke up with him. We drank coffee together and got to chatted for a bit, it was lovely. After he left my roommie Kait woke up and we had a couple hours to hang and talk before she left town for the night. Then at 11 I was alone. Alone for what would turn out to be the next 10 hours in my apartment, with the exception of The Shrimp. It was wonderful and.....AWESOME.
My apartment was freezing (not really, it was just chilly and I am just insanely cold all the time) but I still didnt want to turn on the heat, not yet. I was bundled in my usual baggy sweats and hoodie but still, I was shivering. Then, I spotted it! A gloriously golden rectangle of sunlight, I swear, just the size of my body! It was half on and half off my rommies bed but I didnt care. I laid down, half way hanging off her bed and let the heat streaming through the window pane defrost my chilled skin. It was so splendid I drifted off into a deep sleep that lasted 2 whole wonderful hours.
When I woke up, I was in an odd mood I guess you could say. One of those sad-for-no-reason kind of moods. I wasnt super down or anything, just had a minor sadness gnawing at my insides that I just couldnt shake. Im such a girl sometimes! So I turned on some sad music and just embraced it. It was great, it lifted me out of my funk a bit and I was able to clean my enitre apartment! Spotless! Awesome!
I was on such a roll, even though it was dark out by now, that I finally began on my inspiration board that has been sitting empty on my desk since I moved in. Not a huge feat but I filled it with things I love and that make me smile like, beautiful photos, cute notes from the boyfriend, inspirational quotes, and one of my favorite pics of me and my brother when we were little. Its not done, but its already making me happy! I also put a few photos on one of my blank walls that has been taunting me with its nudity for a few months now. Some amazing snowboarding photography and a little of my own too! And I even vamped up my new jewelery section. Sometimes its awesome to finally get to all of the little things you so often neglect. It was very gratifying. And very awesome.
My boards. (sorry the sunlight was a real bitch)
To top of the low key awesomeness that was day two...the boyfriend came over at nine and we walked to the great pizza place 2 blocks away. We ordered a pizza togo and drank a beers while it was cooked. We walked it home and devoured it while simply talking together. No movies, no tv, not even any music tonight. Just us and our words. We carried the tradition into my bedroom where we fell asleep in conversation, ending my day with quiet and awesome "I Love Yous."
Apparently, junk like this also happens
while in your apt for 10 hours alone :)
I think the awesome of today was all of my beautiful mini awesomes strung so perfectly together.
