Been busy doing… May22-#100happydays-day 43

Well, I realize I’ve been missing a few days here and there, and lately not having a lot to write about. 

But today makes up for lost time! Many things made me happy today, including the amazing sunshine! 

 

I spent the afternoon digging and weeding the garden, but it still looks messy. Oh well, some more manure, a bit of water, and I’ll get the seeds in soon.  

 

We had a Dr. appointment for my little guy this afternoon, found out we need an ortho consult. Since he started walking, he seems to drag his right foot sideways a little. Hoping and praying it’s nothing serious. 

We then had some playtime with both boys over at grandma and grandpas, and had fun swimming in the backyard.  

 A beautiful evening has been spent outside. Beginning with grilling some Tuna to a perfect medium rare, along with peppers and zucchini. Some wine, and eating on the patio. Ahh, summer, I think you’re here! 

   Now, kids in bed, husband working on our basement renos, and I’m sipping another glass of red on the patio.   

  Also enjoying a few moments with my faithful beagle. We prepare to say goodbye to him soon, as I think his illness is getting worse. But seeing him roll around definitely makes me happy.  

   

May 16-#100happydays-day 37- out at the lake. 

So happy to take this guy for a walk!

I love the smell of these little blossoms on my plum tree. We have an apple tree and a plum tree in our backyard. They each produce fruit every other year. This year is plums! We also have the most amazing raspberry bush. I can’t wait to get some veggies in the garden, although I never have the best luck. Each year I try, and I’m just happy with whatever comes up!  

 

Getting ID’d!! May 14-#100happydays-day 35

stopped quickly after work to grab some goodies at the local LB ( liquor board store). The kind gentleman working politely asked for ID. I got my wallet and said “sorry, did you actually ask for this or am I imagining things?” 

Well, feel pretty good to be possibly taken for under 25!!

Finding a new series of books! Being a huge mystery fan, I’m not sure why I have not read these earlier!?? Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Milhone alphabet mysteries are Amazing. Everything I want in a book. Great protagonist, fast paced reading. Taking place in 1980’s California adds to the charm. I wonder how long it will take me to make it through the alphabet.

Out at the Silver Spoon dinner. Alan Thicke was our guest speaker. 

Always a fun night out!  

   

May 10-#100happydays-day 31

Happy Mother’s Day! I’m blessed with 2 amazing boys. I also have a wonderful mother, and mother in law in my life. 

Being a mom is a lot of hard work, but it brings me indescribable joy. 

May 9- #100happydays-day 30 – new haircut

As much as I live long hair, it feels nice to have something new. 

May 7 #100happydays-day 28 searching. 

Little hard to find happiness after the sadness of the last few days. 

But there were little things. I hugged an old friend today, and our tears were shared, but it felt peaceful. It was a cool day, but the sun came out for awhile. And these two really are my pride and joy.  

   

Shock me again. 

Another blow has come this week. Another flood of memories and a heart wrenching realization that time goes way to fast.  Hit so hard with the awareness that I must see the beauty of life at EVERY.GIVEN.MOMENT. 

I sit mourning the loss of an old friend. We knew each other very well in nursing school. We had been such good friends 15 years ago. But life changes. Time passes. We lost touch. Always meant to “get together for a beer”.  Dammit, she only lived a few blocks away, why didn’t I make an effort!?

I don’t even know where life took her. We hadn’t seen in each other in about 6 years. I don’t know why she killed herself, and I’ll never know the struggles she faced. In all honesty, I didn’t know her anymore, but I ever thought she had any depression, or problems with mental health. She was a carefree bubbly girl. She loved nature, coffee and cherries. I still remember her apartment vividly. I’ll miss you Mel, and think of you often.
