Beautiful Day

Today I woke up feeling better than I have felt the past few days. It was a beautiful day filled with sunshine and a cool breeze, the kind of day where you want to open the windows. I stayed home doing laundry and cooking all day. Mark taught the boys math in the morning after our breakfast of homemade pancakes and bacon. In the afternoon he ran errands and worked with the boys in the garage doing various fun things. For lunch, we enjoyed soup and salad with homemade strawberry applesauce and a butter cookie for dessert. After lunch Eric went in the garage and did some work on our bicycles, after doing so he convinced all of us to go on a family bike ride. When I came out to get my bike, Eric had decorated the basket on my bike with roses and paperwhites from my garden. We all had a great time riding together. I felt a bit out of shape, I think because I am not completely well yet. It felt good to get out in the fresh air and sunshine, especially with those flowers on my basket. After the ride I took the flowers inside and put them in a vase. The paperwhites smell so good and will remind me of my special bike ride (and my son's love).
