Great day

May 25, 2008

Ah, such a great day! Such a great weekend! I'm so loving holiday weekends without plans!!!

Yesterday and today I got to sleep in and then enjoy yummy coffee with the last of my chocolate mint creamer.

I'm making use of my 5 disc dvd player with excellent cd's. I always listen to music in the car (well, 98% of the time) but rarely at home. I may have to change that.

Yesterday's set was all guys:

  • James Taylor
  • Frank Sinatra
  • Damien Rice
  • Josh Groban
  • another Josh Groban
So today I went with all ladies:
  • I Hope You Dance single (I'm blanking on who sings this)
  • Bette Midler (go ahead and laugh)
  • Norah Jones
  • Joss Stone
  • A fun mix my friend Tammy made before I left for Japan with stuff like Wilson Phillips (rock on!)
I've got all my blinds up and all my windows open. The sun is out; there's a light breeze. It's gorgeous!!

I'm doing laundry, washing dishes, baking cookies, putting new sheets on the bed, getting things done. I'm normally not real good with keeping up on cleaning at home. But I LOVE to be able to see the results of my efforts.

Yesterday I put together that secretary's desk from Target ALL BY MYSELF. You probably have no clue how big of a deal this was for me. I am learning to take care of myself and figure out things on my own. Anytime I take my car in to get the oil changed I am proud of myself. It's definitely a gradual thing. I still can't taking Lulu in for a carwash. But I'm working on it.

I got in a couple great walks today. I saw family this afternoon for a bit and will again tomorrow for a cookout. I'm excited about that. I also plan on finishing my library book My Legendary Girlfriend since it's due today!

Last night I went to 5:30 church (I'm gonna be honest; it was strange) and ran into J-La - what a nice surprise! So we ended up hanging out after the service, going to Super Target and the mall, enjoying a nice dinner in the food court mixed in with great conversations. And then I got to see her new house and visit with her roomies, who I also know.

So many blessings. I love being able to appreciate simple things like walking, drinking coffee, curtains blowing in the breeze, watching neighbor kids riding bikes, being with friends and family...

So blessed am I.
