The Adventures of Stinky Sweet:

Sometimes stinky. Sometimes sweet. But it's our life - and it is always good.

Giving thanks.

This no-good-not-what-I-planned weekend turned out to be exactly what I needed and pretty much perfection.

Chad was off Friday so we got to spend the entire afternoon together - running around and then finishing our plumbing project with the help of his dad. (ok, it was mostly them. I do a lot of tool handing over...) Saturday we got up early to go pick up my car, Chad got his long run in, I got a walk in with Uncle J and lunch at UPD before Chad had to go to work. I spend the afternoon helping K at her house with more painting before meeting Chad at the townhouse for dinner. Lasagna and a nice glass of wine for J and I (not for Chad, obviously, since he was just on his dinner break) and some good conversation before heading home to bed. Chad ended up staying for an extra shift so he arrived home at around 7:30 this morning. We slept through church (oops? but not entirely a mistake since he had just arrived home after working 18 hours) then had a nice lunch with family at the Yellow Deli.

I spent this afternoon helping K again with an outside painting job and the weather could not have been more perfect. It has been an insanely gorgeous weekend, full of sunshine and near 70 degree temps. I have already cleaned out my car - a project that has been needing to happen for weeks - and now with the windows open, I will clean the kitchen. I feel so much more energized and ready to go and do when the weather is like this. My to do list shrinks so much faster! I am so thankful for today and a weekend where the unexpected turned into the wonderful.
