Good feelings abounding

There's no good reason (or no bad reason either, I guess) for my good feelings. But it's a beautiful day here, about 74 degrees, bright and sunny. I went out to Hobby Lobby for new living room curtain rods and just had this overwhelming feeling of good. Who cares why? It just feels good to feel good! This kind of peaceful, contented feeling doesn't happen all that often so I'm just going to go with it. I really have no stress (or darn little) in my life but some days it just feels wonderful and I can really count my blessings. This is one of those days.

Johnnie has finished the drywall mudding in the bathroom and is now priming the walls. Excellent progress and not a moment too soon. One step closer to finishing and getting our life and home back to normal. Next he'll/we'll tackle the tiling so that's exciting. With the weather getting nice outside, it's time to stop working on inside projects and either kick back and relax or work outside.

We put railing boxes on our deck and I am getting the itch to buy the flats of impatiens for those and get them pulled together. It's a couple hours of tedious work but they look wonderful once they're planted and growing. So maybe I'll do that this afternoon, after making Erin's Mother's Day surprise.* Or at least go get the flowers so they're here when I have time for them.

The beautiful SUNNNNY

I hope all the moms among us (and dads who are fulfilling both roles) have a wonderful Mother's Day. We'll have brunch with Erin, Mike, Emily and Lucy and then play for the day. Depending on the weather, we may take a SUNNNNY ride or just plunk ourselves on the deck and vegetate. In any event, we'll enjoy every second. I hope you do too.

*Erin's surprise isn't much of a surprise: she's getting a homemade gluten-free tiramisu cheesecake. Shhhhhhhh! Don't tell her! :})

I love having those days when you feel like that, happy and carefree. I'm happy you're happy!

Have a wonderful Mother's Day playing with your grandchildren. We won't be celebrating until the 17th so I won't see mine this Sunday. I'm stopping by my daughter's after work today so I get my 'fix'. If I don't see them for awhile I go through withdrawals.
