Welcome to High Five for Friday – hosted by me, BeckyTif, and Della! Come, read up on what we’ve been up to this week and get to know some amazing bloggers down below!

This week was one of those weeks that just was busy! But… I’m having a hard time even thinking about what we did that was all that significant.

Ever have one of those weeks? I know we did something interesting! I know there were funny moments. But I can’t recall any of them!

Sometimes life feels a little mundane. It feels like the same ol’ day, day in, day out. Nothing bad happening, but no adventures either. No grand tales!

But those mundane weeks often give you a chance to enjoy simple things.

I’m sitting at my kitchen table right now, pre-dawn, writing this post. I can hear what sounds like a choir of birds outside! Birds flying at me isn’t fun, but hearing them all wake up in the morning and sing their little hearts out brings such a joy!

We went to the library this week for our usual story time and book hunt. On a whim, we wandered over to the adult book section. I rarely do that… I usually find a book that looks interesting via Amazon and then reserve it online at the library. So I don’t often get to hunt for myself. But I did! And I found the latest book from my favorite book series. I’ve enjoyed a lot of cups of tea, curled up on the sofa, savoring that book.

I randomly decided to purge my kitchen of doodads. My children were happily playing together so I hopped on a stool and opened every cabinet. It took me 30 minutes, but I was so pleased when it was done! Even more pleased when I dropped it off at the donation center.

We had rain all weekend and into Tuesday. Around lunchtime on Tuesday, the rain let up! So we got out the stroller and went for a neighborhood walk. Elizabeth insisted on wearing her rain boots. I grumbled, but agreed. Thanks to her spontaneity, we found a cul-de-sac full of great splashing puddles! She rain with such joy, jumping in every single puddle. She was soaked from the waist down! And her smile was HUGE!

So yes… the most average of weeks. I caught myself several times thinking “what a boring week!”. But, looking back, it was the most GLORIOUS of mundane weeks. I got a chance to stop, savor, and enjoy.

    You are so right. Sometimes “mundane” is the best. It’s nice to just enjoy the little moments. Good for you letting Elizabeth jump in puddles! Memories in the making? Have a great weekend!

    It seems like your “boring” week wasn’t actually boring at all! I can imagine how happy Elizabeth was jumping in puddles! I love purging and am so happy when it gets to the goodwill and out of the house! Have a great weekend!
