Joy: Unexpected Light

I’ve tried my best to schedule good things lately. But every moment cannot be scheduled. And even within a schedule, I have very little control. All I can do is roll with the punches and do my best to keep up. So Saturday I scheduled a pedicure/manicure for 1 pm, and went with the flow the rest of the day. I was able to enjoy a doughscuit and coffee for breakfast at Mucci’s, where I saw this little star on the ground.

And I think it gave me the light I needed. To see what happens, and find something good along the way. After my pedicure I stopped by a Broken Clock Brewery. I LOVED their lavender IPA, and will definitely be visiting in the fall when their Pecan Brown Ale is released. (although that might not be the official name). Then a friend and I walked around Lake Harriet before visiting Sonny’s Ice Cream. I’ve probably passed the place 20 times in the last two years but had never stopped, and will definitely need to go again!

Doughscuit, Beer, Ice Cream. It was a good day. Sunday included brunch, visiting the Irish Fair, and yoga. Of course there was some required dish washing, and a final reflection paper I still need to complete, but overall a solid weekend.

Here’s hoping there is more unexpected light in my future!

  1. I’m glad you were able to do some fun things this weekend. Your go with the flow day on Saturday sounded awesome! I’ve been meaning to try Sonny’s Ice Cream, too, but have yet to go there. I need to remedy that as I have a friend that lives walking distance from it so I should plan a girls date there.
