Describe your ideal day. How would you spend your time? Who would you spend it with? Have you had this day? If not, how could you make it happen?
I was going to use today as one of my 2 "Get Out of Post Free" days, but I changed my mind. What intimidated me about writing this post, was narrowing down ideas to one single day. There are so many things I would love to do, and plan to do in the future, deciding on just one is a challenge. In fact, I have two very different "ideal" days.
The first would entail a day with the family: me, my hubby, and the kids. We would wake up to warm, sunny weather, followed by a lovely breakfast which I'd cook. We'd then head outside for a long relaxing ride around the Stanley Park seawall, through English Bay and Yaletown, and over to Kitsilano for a picnic and some tennis. On the way back we'd ride back along an alternate route - via downtown Vancouver, through Coal Harbour and back to the Stanley Park seawall for the east half. Once back home, we'd enjoy a barbeque, eat dinner on the deck, and watch a nice family movie together. Great food, exercise, sunshine, and quality family time together - I can't think of any way I'd rather spend a summer day. Oh, and Dylan would have perfect blood sugar numbers all day :)
The second would a day with just me and my hubby. We rarely get any time alone together, and when we do there are always so many other things to do - errands, cleaning, work, etc - that the time is never really ours. An ideal day would have to involve time some serious time alone, in the form of a tropical vacation. I get up very early on vacation (never want to waste a single minute) and run every morning, on the beach if possible. So after a long run, we would enjoy a luxurious breakfast together and a quiet morning at the beach reading, swimming, and soaking up some sun. The afternoon would take us on an excursion, perhaps a nice hike, and we would end the day with a romantic dinner on the beach, followed by a moonlight beach walk.
My first "ideal day" above, I have actually never had, even though it is all within a close radius of our home, and straightforward to arrange. We simply need to make it happen! This summer for sure! The second day we have done (with a few minor changes) on a few occasions, just not for a while. Life seems to keep getting in the way. I am determined to change that and have this day soon too.
