Midday Movies and Other Magical Mundane Moments

Harry is on spring break. I, therefore, am also on spring break. Our original plan for the week was to head to the beach and then come back home just in time for Easter. But, as I have learned oh too well, things don’t always go as planned. At the last minute, we decided to skip the beach and stay home.

We have been having some uneventful, relaxing, and just-what-we-needed days. Here is a sampling of what has been happening in the Martin household this week:

~ Sleeping in (Yes, 6:30 AM counts as sleeping in!)
~ Warm home-cooked breakfasts
~ Morning walks around the neighborhood
~ Afternoon bike rides
~ Quality family time on the deck
~ Fun at the playground
~ Lots of spring cleaning
~ Healthy home-cooked dinners
~ Trips to the Red Box
~ Chocolate snowballs
~ Chasing Bianca around the house while she giggles
~ Watching Orioles’ games
~ Lots of reading and singing
~ Extra hugs and kisses

Quite simply, it has been heavenly, and I am truly grateful for this nourishing time with my family.


  1. Sounds like the perfect vacation!

  2. Nice. On my days off, I love to have a nice, leisurely breakfast, too. Lots of fun stuff! Happy vay cay!
