happy day...

A post from Sunday...It was sort of forgotten with all of the excitement of the new design:)

I'm happy today. I'm really not sure why, but I'll take it! Maybe it is because my health is slowly returning and I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel! I was telling my mom today how I think that I feel better physically than I have in about 10 months or so. It feels so good to not be exhausted by an outing to church or by just getting ready for the day. Or maybe it is because Parker is having a good day...and when he has a good day we always have so much fun. When he's having a bad day, well...it isn't so much fun!

Since I'm seeing light today, it is easier to enjoy the little things in life. Funny how that happens:) Here are a few of those things:

real coffee...

Now, I don't just mean caffeinated (which it is), but I mean coffee that tastes like the real thing. I woke up this morning to an empty canister of coffee. I dug through our stock and found that we had some Folgers Low Acid coffee. I really thought that I could handle it...nope. It tasted like...hmmm...you know, not coffee. So I loaded up the boys at 8:30 in the morning and headed to the nearest Starbucks drive-thru and picked up my favorite drink (a tall, non-fat, extra hot, Cinnamon Dulce Latter with whip--thank you very much) and a pound of the real stuff for home. Aaaaahhhhh....heaven. We're total coffee snobs and sorta proud of it!

cool tunes...

EastMountainSouth. Great music that our good friend Dan gave us. You might recognize one of the songs from Elizabethtown, one of my favorite movies. I really can't figure out if these two people are still making music together, but this album is certainly worth checking out. It just puts me in a good mood...thanks Dan!

a smellygood house...

I love the way our house smells when I use this scented oil from Bath and Body Works. I am not sure if anybody else cares if our house smells like a peony, but I sure do. It makes me feel as if spring is really coming. It is.... isn't it?

daffodils on my coffee table...

They are on their last leg but still bringing me smiles. Just another reminder that, indeed, spring is going to come here someday. Can you tell that I need some sun?

a good read...

This is a book I just recently started reading. My sister-in-law, Vicky, sent it to me around the time Griffin was born and I'm just now getting to it! I am thoroughly enjoying my special time curled up on the couch with my real coffee and this good read. I'm a Christian and the author isn't, so I don't agree with her on everything, but it totally doesn't matter in order for me to enjoy reading this one. Right now, I'm reading about the author's experiences in Italy...one of my all time favorite places. Unfortunately, I'm starting to get the travel bug now, which is totally bad timing!

a perfect bagel...

Thirteen of them, to be exact. We stopped at our favorite bagel shop on the way home from church to pick up a few of our favorite cranberry-orange bagels. Parker has come to expect his fresh bakery item after church now. He is quite particular about what kind of bagels he likes so I decided to pick up a baker's dozen and freeze them. Oooohhhh, they are so good! Come visit and I'll take you out to some real coffee and a real bagel ;)

Oh, I love list posts like this! :) I love East Mountain South- I had never heard of them, but I listened to them a bunch this morning. I wonder if I can get their cd at the library...And you'll have to tell me more about "Eat Pray Love"- it has actually been on my list of books to read for awhile, so I'd love to hear your thoughts on it!

I love and miss you!
