The feel-good endorphins are raging here. The weather is completely ideal. The grass is mowed. The flowers and garden have been watered. Supper is started. So after I type this up I reckon I might go sit on the deck and sip some iced tea and take a deep breath of idyllic peace. Until the MYP traipse in the door and wonder 'what's for snack?'.
However, someone just tried to make me feel not so good. It almost worked. Remember my love affair with Aldi? Remember my previous cart experiences with Chuck E Cheese coins, etc? Well another one just happened. I'm walking out with two bags and decide to pick them up and put my cart back. Up walks a man and woman. He says, 'hey can we have that cart?' 'Sure!' I say. He takes it from me. He starts to wander towards the doors. I look at the lady he's with. She shrugs her shoulders and says, 'we don't have a quarter' and also wanders toward the doors. That was that! I was left holding two very heavy bags of goods and no quarter. 'HEY! IF THERE'S NO QUARTER, WHERE'S MY THANKS???' But it is too nice of a day to feel robbed of my coin.
Here's a couple pictures from the past few days:

I've always liked cats. Here's proof. This is Smoky - my first kitty.
Daughter #2 has been working on the stage crew for her school's middle school performance of "High School Musical". She says it has been very stressful having everything staged and set by the time the curtain is pulled back again. I wouldn't know. I wasn't talented and involved as a stage crew member.
