Yesterday, I had to stop and pause for a moment.
The last few months, if not the whole of this year has been incredibly busy for the Hummingbird Household. It feels like a never-ending cycle of work, housework, errands and appointments and it's starting to wear me down. It got me thinking, when was the last time we did anything spontaneous?
I searched my mind, but drew a blank. Which honestly, rattled me. It's scary when we get so caught up in our own little world, the days swirling around us and disappearing in what seems to be a nanosecond that we're only existing, and not living. I've fallen into a rut of scheduling and planning which is completely not my style, and I'm really starting to miss that spontenaity.
So, I'm devising a plan, which I know is ironic considering the whole point of this post. It may sound ridiculous and contrary, but I'm scheduling a time each weekend for spontaneity. Simply leaving a window of time open to get out of the house and have a picnic, or out for tea, or to catch a movie or... whatever. Just spend time as a little Hummingbird family.
On Sunday, we put that plan into action. We headed out in the gorgeous sunshine and wandered around a Hot Rod Festival that was on that morning.
I don't know what we'll do next weekend. Yet. But what I do know is that it will be spontaneous... in the time I have planned for it.
