I have a real post for you, a post full of insight and humor, frugal ideas and lovely craftiness. Or at least, as soon as I think of it, I'm sure it will have all that. But I can't think of it, because Handsome just got home from a 9-mile bike ride (because he's a beast!) and said some magical words to me:
"Do you want to set the tent up in the backyard?"
Was he kidding? No! Does he have to get up for work tomorrow? Yes! But still, because I had asked a few weeks ago, and because the weather is right, and because I'm married to a man who love love loves me, he asked me if I wanted to camp out in the backyard.
|Someday, I'll make these and think back fondly on tonight's adventure!|
I've wanted to camp for about... all of our married life (nigh on 4 years now). He got a tent for Christmas of 2007, and we've never used it. Here's hoping the moths haven't gotten to it. Handsome's schedule doesn't allow for a whole heck of a lot of weekend adventures, mostly due to him having no real weekends to speak of. And with paramedic school looming (the black cloud in all of our sunny days), our fun time together is going to get shorter and shorter.
And so, although I love my bed and was a little taken back by his offer (it's not at all practical, you see?) I jumped at the chance. Life is an adventure, and it is our opportunity each day to seize what we can. So tonight, I'll be siezing some s'mores by the campfire, snuggling up in a tent, and (hopefully) drifting off to the sounds of the night.
Are you turning any ordinary moments into adventures? I highly recommend it!
