Yesterday was a hard day. Not that anything horrible happened, it was just one of those days that was hard. It felt like even doing the simplest things was too difficult. I am sure everyone has had one of those days.
When Rick got home, we found out that a meeting we thought we were going to attend had been postponed, so he worked in the yard while I cooked dinner. It was just the two of us and the girls at home. Foreshadowing of what soon will be. After we cleaned up dinner, the girls picked a DVD they wanted to watch, so we all hung out in the family room until bedtime. It was so nice to enjoy some down time as a family.
After the girls went to bed, Rick suggested we take a swim in the moonlight. The pool was as warm as a bathtub. Really too warm to swim, but just perfect to float and stare at the stars. It is amazing how easy it is to talk about the cares of the day and how insignificant they can seem when you are so relaxed. The night was perfect with the half moon and wispy clouds. The Milky Way stretched across the sky streaked by shooting stars. Far in the distance you could see the lights of airplanes and nearer to home the lights of the cars coming down the road through Toquerville. I wondered where they were going that they would be travelling so late at night. What adventures awaited the passengers and would they be glad to finally reach their beds.
Finally at midnight, we called it a night and headed in to sleep; a perfect end to a hard day.
