We’ve had the crud. The kind of crud that lingers and overstays it’s welcome. The one that stands on your chest and causes deep eye crossing can’t get a breath coughing.
I’m so over it.
So today I practiced a little Biblical taking back. A little Old Testament dominion over dirt, dust, and germs. I opened blinds and threw open windows. And I feel like I sort of took my house back.
It feels good. But I read a quote off of pinterest and thought, “Yep, that is what I need.”
“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot
and the wind blows cold:
when it is summer in the light,
and winter in the shade.”
~ Charles Dickens Great Expectations
Which means that tomorrow I am taking the children (home for a school holiday) to the beach.
I need to feel the sun heating my skin.
I want to feel the sand between my toes.
Hear the cry of a seagull over the sound of the waves.
Mine some treasures from the sea.
Feed the birds.
And maybe even watch the sun go down.
Can’t think of a better way to start the weekend, can you?
