Lazy Days and Sundays

Writing this at the tail end of a simply wonderful day.

Woke up, went to church, had a full-on brunch, and dove straight back into bed. Only woke up again at 6 - just in time for supper!

Really, is there any better way to spend a Sunday?

I suppose it'd be stating the obvious to say that I looooooooooooooooooooove long weekends; pity it's the last one for a while.

But there's still 2 days left! That's a really good feeling on a Sunday night. Planning on going to the Bien Donne Cheese Festival tomorrow - I'm already salivating at the thought of all those cheeses on display. Give me some cheese, a loaf of freshly baked bread and some wine and I'll be quite content for a few hours.

And how great to have someone to share it all with - the cheese tasting and the afternoon naps!


Last night I had a revelation.

TheHusband had to work on a project at home, trying to, um..., well I don't know exactly what he was trying to do! Which is the part of the point of this particular entry.

It was amazing to just watch him work - tinkering with circuitboards, various electronic components, computer simulations and measuring devices. This is a field where my knowledge is VERY limited (to matric science to be precise), and it was quite interesting to see him do "his thing" with such confidence and preciseness.

First off, I would've lost my temper quite early on, as he had to keep on modifying the circuit over and over again to get the correct results, since each time the results were not quite as expected. Quite frankly I don't have the patience for things like that. If I expect something to work and it doesn't work I get extremely frustrated. Call it a character flaw, I prefer to refer to it as "preserving my sanity".

And secondly I found myself intrigued and... dare I say it: turned on by the knowledge he had of his field. Especially in reference to my limited knowledge thereof. And I was in literally in awe of him.

I've always had a thing for intelligent men...
