|I love it when I accidently take a pic and it turns out this cool|
I finally managed to take some time off work, 3 workdays off, today being my last day off. My job tends to be a bit stressful, as anyone in construction can tell you. I feel like people rely on me a bit too much sometimes and it can get overwhelming pretty quickly. So, major plans were made to try to relax and do whatever I wanted, all while not worrying about work. Needless to say, it was a total failure. Thursday and Friday, I spent the day answering my cell phone trying to take care of issues and help out co-workers as much as possible. I understand most of what I do comes with experience, knowing who to call and how to get what I need done, so I don't fault anyone that called me. Today though, was a different story. For the most part, I was finally able to take a day off. Only a few phone calls from the office, but nothing major or that I couldn't take care of easily. I had intended to take the day to straighten my house and get rid of/organize junk in my bedroom. Instead, I dropped off my baby boy at daycare (sorry Noah) and spent the day with my daughter.
We went to a local "walking" park looking for fairy homes, lunch and talking. I love it when Isabel wants to have adult conversations, her being 7 and all it can be pretty funny.
No fairies were found, but we had fun looking. We had a very nice lunch outside by a small pond. The weather was too nice not to eat outside. 74 degrees in November is always nice, especially after a cold week before. Then we came home, and before picking up Noah, and raked up MORE leaves. Some days I wonder why bother. By the time we were done, it looked like we needed to rake again. Here are some wonderful shots I thoght I'd share:
|No fairies here|
|Fairy must've been out for the day|
|Beautiful lunch outside|

So, the house is a mess, my bedroom is the same as before, but I am so thankful to have spent such a beautiful day with my wonderful daughter. These moments are so rare and it's always nice to get one on one time with one of my babies.
