The beauty of an ordinary day

He was recovering from a week of being sick and slept a good 2 hours longer than on a normal Saturday.

When he finally roused, we cuddled on the couch and watched old Godzilla cartoons from the '90's that I didn't even know existed.

It is still winter, but the sun was shining and it was exceptionally warm for a February in Minnesota so we took a walk, splashing in the puddles and crunching the crusty, frozen snow.

We ate peanut butter sandwiches and yogurt for lunch washing it all down with pink lemonade.

We searched Pinterest for a project that we actually had the supplies for. The upside of never emptying the bathroom garbage is an abundance of toilet paper rolls. We settled on a toilet-paper tube snake!

We talked and laughed and even did a little housework.

We ended the day with dinner at mom's (all the way across the street) a blessing for sure.

We ended the day where we started, cuddling on the couch watching more episodes of Godzilla.

It was an ordinary day that was anything but.

I wish that all Saturdays could be this "ordinary".


I'm linking up with LisaJo today for 5 Minute Fridays!

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..


  1. Ordinary Saturdays are the best. But, hey, if they are so ordinary, shouldn't they happen more often?! :) Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Oh I agree- there is nothing quite like a little ordinary!

  3. Vicki,
    Thanks for stopping by He Cares for Us. I love your unordinary day. What a blessing to have the time to do that craft. If you are looking for more crafts - check my PInterest. Also I have a children's book with activities as well.

  4. I somehow missed this last week, but was so thrilled to see it here today! Oh those kind of Saturdays...they are *Extra*ordinary. gifts to be savored. (and we've made those snakes, too! fun!)

    Love and hugs to you, friend!
