If You're Happy and You Know It

It's 9:36 AM

The house is clean. As in spotless. Toys picked up, floor vacuumed, dishes done and put away.

One lonely hot pink sweater is tumbling in the dryer. It's the last stitch of laundry to be washed, folded and put to rest quietly in it's drawer. (Look for my obit in the paper, tomorrow...I always say if I ever actually get the laundry all done, I'll drop dead.)

Dinner is slowly cooking away in the crock pot and the smell of sweet roasted garlic is starting to permeate the house.

We're making play dough in shades of pink and hot blue. Similar colored nail polish is filling Molly's pockets..she's patiently waiting her turn.

Later we're headed outside to plant sunflower and sweet pea seeds.

It's a great day - and is going to stay that way - no matter what bumps lie ahead!
