Any Excuse...

TO GO ON A WALK! Praise God the weather today was just gorgeous here. I had it set in my mind that I would spend today in my PJs catching up on cleaning and laundry. I was so excited that today marked a huge change in Zack and I's schedule. He started a new job today with "normal" hours. For those of you who are accustomed to this type of schedule, I have envied you for so long! No more! Now for us this means that instead of crazy unpredictability (and working over night, sleeping during the day~ fun trying to keep a 5 month old quiet for daddy to sleep) we can all sleep at the same time! So, today marks the beginning of a new blissful schedule. I was so looking forward to my hubby coming home to a clean home, laundry done, and dinner waiting (it has been so long since I have had my act together to accomplish this!) Instead, Zack came home for lunch and I realized, as I was saying goodbye to him at the door, what a beautiful day I was missing. And to think the very thing I have been praying about I almost missed because I have my own plans. Well, I am happy to say that after Moriah woke up from her nap we got a great breath of fresh air. We walked around our neighborhood and down the street to my friend Jamie's where we sat outside on her back porch and chatted, while enjoying the weather. I was so blessed by it. I have to admit that I have had a bit of the "seasonal depression" that comes with winter, and having a baby, and a husband whose schedule is opposite of yours...I could go on and on. But, God has heard my cry and brought me a taste of spring! Praise the Lord!! And to think I almost missed out because I was going to clean...hehe, thanks for getting me out of that for today, Lord. I hope you pay attention to the ways God is answering your prayers. I almost missed the whole beautiful day, thankfully I was able to at least enjoy the afternoon.
So, I also took this afternoon adventure as an excuse to not cook tonight. I had taken meat out of the freezer and placed it in the fridge to defrost. Well, it didn't, so we ordered pizza and watched a movie tonight. Oh, today was such a wonderful day. Thank you, Father, thank you for the much needed break and GORGEOUS weather.
Here is Moriah ready for our outdoor adventure.
