Well, it all started this morning with an unexpected snow that canceled work and school.
See the pretty cardinal in the snowy branches of the tree in our front yard? :-)
It wasn't a fancy day by any means...I didn't even leave the house. But it was a good day nonetheless. I washed some clothes and did some general housework, but mostly it was just one of those relaxing, enjoyable *bonus* days I get from time to time.
Katie and I watched a couple episodes of MacGyver on Netflix, then she decided to clean her room, and asked me to stay with her. We looked through old cards and notebooks, and shared some laughs at some of the things she'd written in her old journals. She had a hard time going through her stuffed animals. She knew she was outgrowing them and should let them go, but she was having a hard time of it. I told her I'd read somewhere that it was good to take a picture of the item you wanted to remember. That way you can look at the picture, but you don't actually have the item taking up needed space. She said that sounded like a good idea, and proceeded to take pictures of some of her most favorite stuffed animals. Some of them, though, just couldn't go in the Goodwill bag, and I told her that was OK, and that she might change her mind later, or decide to keep them for good.
In the end, this is what she parted with today. To us, this may just look like a few bags of odds and ends destined for Goodwill, but to one 15 year old girl, these bags hold much more.
Yes, it was a good day...just a special day with my girl.♥
Hope you all have a great week, and thanks for stopping by. :-)
