normal is nice ...

i had the best of days today ...

it was a lovely fall day weather wise ... 15C or 60F ... perfect for walking to town and doing some shopping (i found some bargains so cheap, it felt like a gift!) ... paying bills ... plus cashing my first pay cheque of the season ... *smile*

i finished cleaning out my flower beds ... it was so warm by the side of the house, i think i could have suntanned!

AND i got to go for a bike ride!!! that's an extremely rare event these days since it has cooled down considerably ... the picture i posted is from my usual biking route ...

i was in and out of the house ... but even so, i did manage to do the laundry and usual housework ... plus chat with leo and play with scooter ...

i mean it was a really lovely, normal type day ... which i am so thankful for ...

written down my day sounds as exciting as watching paint dry ... *grinning* ... but there is something to be said for paint drying - it refreshes everything ...

just sharing the sweetness ...



Be moderate in order to taste the joys of life in abundance.

Well then it sure is active paint! But I agree with you - normal is really nice. Just that often the unnormal seems to be becoming a norm and the real normal isn't that anymore but pure luxury!

I'm so glad you had such a great day.
It looks very pretty outside today here. I need to get off this computer and enjoy the warmer, sun shiny day.

Oh how I love those normal days! Our weather was warm too - how it makes the soul happy to have such nice weather in November. My days are hectic trying to get our other house ready to sell, I'll be glad when I have my time back and life takes on a more routine pattern, but I give thanks in all things, God is good!

Don't you know, normal is the new abnormal and abnormal is the new normal. Given that definition, you had an abnormally normal day and you loved every second of it. As did I reading about it. In fact, it was so nicely abnormally normal that I read about it twice. :)
