Yesterday was supposed to be one of the busiest days of the month, with jury duty smack dab in the middle of the day. I left work at noon, rushed back to my side of town, and was the last person to sign in. I had Hands Free Mama in my purse to catch a few extra minutes of reading time before my name was called, but it also occurred to me that just maybe I'd see someone I know.
Ha! It was like a big old party in the courtroom! So many friends were there, doing their civic duty, and we even made some new friends. The afternoon was spent catching up and chatting about books and the FitBit, and I got paid for it! I need to finish my book, borrowed from the library, so another mom can check it out next. I LOVE where I live!!
Today also happens to be the fifth anniversary of the day I closed on the purchase of my last house--the one I bought all by myself. You can see the goodbye tour here. That house was in a small town only 20 minutes away, but I never connected with people there like I have here.
The Hands Free Mama has been inspiring me in other ways, too. Like the images from yesterday's refresh.
Which didn't hide the recycling...
Or the errand bags. Or papers all over the table.
Because I only had a few minutes to take photos and I was going to make the most of the time and the gorgeous light streaming in our windows.
If I waited for perfect, it might never have gotten done.
