Hubs and I just finished devouring some homemade smoked pizza with all sorts of veggies fresh from the garden. And the pig who sacrificed his life for the sausage and pepperoni sprinkles? Well, he was from the ‘hood grocery store up the street and we weren’t on speaking terms anyway.
My sweet son has been divvying up typically hoarded hugs all week and my daughter just told us she’s going to nursing school after she graduates from college in a couple of years. They are happy, independent and the most beautiful people I’ve ever laid eyes on.
It’s Friday, work days this week were spent in the same zip code as my driveway and I just watched Billy Butler, the Chunky Monkey, hit a two-run homer to go ahead of the Giants in the 1st inning.
Life is good.
This post isn’t about boasting or toasting or flaunting my happy life. It’s all about gratitude, putting some happy vibes into the airwaves and hoping that you and yours are getting ready for a great weekend. It’s the end of the summer when days tend to be languorous and we don’t feel too bad about taking a little longer to do whatever it is we do. Extra time at the lake, on the beach or even in the tub. It’s all good. You know as well as I do that school will be starting (for us, next week), days will be getting shorter and deadlines looming. Life is short and, at least for tonight, my hummingbird butt is on the couch.
Some days the words hide and I worry that I don’t have anything valuable to say. It’s in those moments that I take a step back and remember it’s all about keeping it simple and sending to you what you graciously send to me.
Love, happy thoughts and summer soothing vibes. xo
