Friday….and on the fourth day…there was SUN! (not at first but, finally, by afternoon…for real and genuine SUN!)….and it was good! Because, frankly, we have all been feeling a bit like this – Too many days couped up in the house makes a soul tired! I read part of quote one time that said, “Sunshine is delicious….” Oh, indeed. Last night when we ran out to get some dinner…we spotted this family – and they made me smile! And, night before last, my (former) airman started a new job…working security while we goes to school. He works the midnight shift – as in stays up all night long!?! Oh, to be young again. Could not do that no matter how much they paid me. But he does get to sleep during the day…which, for some reason, guys his age seem to have absolutely NO trouble doing!! And, yes, the photo is blurry and I caught him mid-movement but – it still makes me smile! On one final random note, I made some banana bread this week! Haven’t had it in way too long but it was definitely time! Yes, banana bread (and just about anything that ends in bread!) makes me smile!! A few other things that make me smile: Starbucks Pumpkin Lattes are BACK!! Only four more days before we leave for Florida…and will meet the J-man for the first time! It’s about time – he is four and a half months already! Miss Riley is three already – and in Preschool!! How did that happen?? Vacation plans! White pizza – with lots of garlic (had that for dinner last night…and I’m still smiling!) Apple picking…as in bonafide…walking the orchards, selecting the perfect ones and pluckin ‘em yourself from the tree (pretty fun for a city girl like myself!) I have plans for this at the end of this month. Thrift store bargains – I have had some really good luck lately! September birthdays…we have two at our house – and our anniversary too! ANY excuse to celebrate…and eat fancy desserts!! Have a sunny weekend, my friends!!
