a perfect sunday
today has been just about as close to perfect* as possible.
i woke up at 6:50 am and it was already light outside, which always seems to put me in a good mood. i drank my morning coffee, and after that i went to work out (alan was still asleep). when he woke up, we ate breakfast and spent a little time doing chores around the house. the weather has been amazing - between 65 and 79 degrees, sunny, breezy - perfection. so we decided to go to the park, where we walked around a lake full of lily pads, surrounded by lots of trees and birds. there were a bunch of us ducks there, and we even saw two itty bitty ducklings! after that we headed to the mall to eat lunch and do some window-shopping. at williams-sonoma they had samples of these ridiculously delicious chocolate mini cupcakes (i ate two). the people-watching at the mall was fantastic as well. on our way home, we stopped at the pet store to pick up some food for mr. scoop, and the humane society was there with a bunch of adorable kitties and puppies to love on. of course, a perfectly perfect sunday would have involved me bringing home one or two of thes adorable animals, but what can you do? anyway, now we're home and looking forward to a perfect sunday night...
*i am aware that my idea of "perfect" is not overwhelmingly exciting. in fact, some might even call it "boring." i'm not worried.
