REMINDING MYSELF THAT ATTITUDE IS ALL IN WHAT YOU FOCUS ON

Things I am loving right now:

♥ A thought-provoking and challenging book by a favorite author

♥ Being able to find things when I want them

♥ The sound of crickets in the evening

♥ The way the air cools down at night and breezes gently through the house

♥ Nearing the climax, chapter by chapter, in a gripping story that I'm reading aloud to the kids at bedtime

♥ The way they both groan and say "Keep reading, mommy!" when I reach the end of the chapter and put the book down

♥ Open-faced mini pavés with ham & mayo, sliced green peppers and "black monk" cheese melted on top

♥ Counting down the days to vacation

♥ Crossing the last few things off my to-do list at work that need to be done beforehand

♥ The dearth of commitments on our calendar for the foreseeable future'

♥ Re-discovering Sara Hickman

♥ My childrens' big brown eyes in their rosy, sun-tanned faces

♥ Leftover birthday cake

♥ The stupid human tricks my kids can do (Martin: vibrating eyes; Karin: flower tongue!)

♥ The amused look my husband gives me when one of the kids does or says something funny

Hyper Happy Hullabalooing Birthday Wishes to geeklibrarian!
