10 Random Happy Things

1. Digging in the dirt. (Are anyone else's fingers itching now that the weather is changing?)
2. Sleeping until I wake up. Don't get to do it very often. One of life's simple pleasures.
3. Having a walking partner again. Such motivation to NOT sleep till I wake up. Thanks, AJ.
4. Emails from Mongolia. High fives for all things technical which stress me out but also bless my life abundantly. It is email Thursday, folks.
5. 3:55 p.m. when Holl-Doll gets home from school. Empty nests are highly over-rated.
6. When the dentist says "We're all done." Wahoo. Can you tell I went today?
7. 72 degrees at 7:30 a.m. vs. 92 degrees at 7:30 a.m. Did I mention I LOVE our current weather?
8. Grandkids. They really are grand.
9. Finished projects. Also one of life's (not so) simple pleasures.
10. Finding a rubber chicken in my makeup drawer.

Oh yes, how this weather is making me so SO happy! We went for a walk yesterday morning, just because we could. not, you know, for excercise or anything ridiculous like that.

And I figured one of my darling children put that rubber chicken in your makeup drawer - it wouldn't have been out of the ordinary...

Wizzle, it was actually my darling child, Ryan, who put the rubber chicken in my drawer. And then he happened to find it under his pillow....hm.....never a dull moment.

Sleeping until I wake up is a rare luxury at my house as well. And at least you're in Arizona, where the weather is becoming delightful. Here in Utah, we're looking at the first frost of the season this week. Adam and I made sure to stop at Grandma's to see the garden before everything goes by the wayside.

i would like to say, that clodhopper, if i'm allowed to call her that (she says i am but i think it's just cuz she's nice. i heard ryan address her as such, and i just started doing it, very unwarranted. but she is indeed the nicest gal ever and let's me call her clodhopper). anyway, she's the nicest lady ever. and really cool. and has amazing kids. and has a heart in mongolia. and i should go over to the dixon household more often. cuz she rules. as does rydix. and holla. and seeing her older chillun with their kids is a nice treat. i love clodhopper. she's amazing.

love

Alexander Gerbs, please come any time. The door is always open to you. And just for the record, you have my permission to call me Clodhopper. Smiles, Mama Clod
