Today we finally had hope of getting back into routine. It's too easy for disciplines to slide when we have too many days of irregular "things". When I went in to tell Daniel he needed to wear his heavy coat I saw that he'd made his bed, unprompted, the first time in two weeks.
Daniel went back to school after two weeks away (sickness and snow). I'd stayed up late last night to meal plan and make my grocery list. Gracie slept in (she was up five times last night).
We didn't leave the house to shop until after noon. Nearly $200 later we got home and I unloaded the groceries while the girls played.
For dinner I made Black Bean Soup, this one. It's one of the only soups I like. I'm not a soup girl. And I made my favorite homemade bread, Parmesan Herb Bread. Can you tell I wanted to warm up on the inside?
I have a deep affection for the normal, the familiar.
