Sauntering on Saturday

Today is Saturday. Sleep in day!

We haven't entered the early soccer game season yet so Saturday mornings are still free form busyness. Today was especially laid back as the kids were both at sleepovers. I actually had a rare date night with my husband! It was perfect. We went out for sushi, took a walk along Salmon Creek where we saw deer and a bobcat. Yes, what we think was a bobcat ran across our path about 20 feet in front of us. It was exciting but a little scary as it was getting dark and we weren't sure where it went. The next exciting part of our date is that we almost go locked into the baseball enclosure. We were on the way back to the car and taking one of Jim's famous Shortcuts, but the gate was locked and the employees were leaving out the other side. Jim was confident we could scale the 20 foot fence to escape, but I wasn't so sure.

We did make it back to the car and home for popcorn and a movie. With no kids, it was a nice uninterrupted time and assured me that we will have plenty to do and talk about when the kids are grown (which seems to be approaching fast and faster as they are nearing the teenage era).

We slept in Saturday morning and then made a trip to Barnes and Nobles for a browse through the shelves and a Frappacino. Then Jim went off to do some errands and I took advantage of the opportunity to leisurely browse the bookshelves of local thrift store for literary treasures.

It was a wonderful day of sauntering. I am happy and blessed! If you haven't taken the time to enjoy the company of your spouse lately, I urge you to fit it in. It is essential to a healthy relationship and this weekend reminded me of how busy a mom's life can be and how important taking time to nurture my marriage is.
