It’s a Terrific Tuesday


We had to drive 100 mile+ round trip this morning to deliver the car to the auto body shop in Bozeman. Had to have it there by 8: AM.

So what makes this day terrific? We survived the trip. It was knuckle-biting because we were driving right into the rising sun. Blinded!

But, now we’re back safely and feeling extremely grateful.

On the drive home (in Bob’s pickup), I could relax and enjoy the scenery. This Haiku danced in my mind:

Marshmallow mountains

Frame a beautiful skyline

Where’re the Graham Crackers?

.

Chocolate’s in the road

Where yesterday’s cattle drove

Our state’s traffic jam.

.

See the cattle drive?

No, it wasn’t elephants –

Not in Montana!

Hah! The mind’s a funny thing, ain’t it? Have a Terrific Tuesday!

S = Sunshine


Day #19 in the A-Z series of “What Makes Me Happy?”

SUNSHINE

You expected that would be my S word, didn’t you?

I mean, just look at my header up there!

Yes, sunshine makes me happy!

But look out there this morning…

Sunshine’s late today

Get up? But it’s still dark out!

Daylight saving’s time

.

I’m not a fan of dark, rainy mornings.

Sunshine, Light, and Love make me happy.

But on dark and rainy days like this one,

The other S word that makes me happy

Is SOUP!

Ah yes, I think I’ll go

Get a crockpot started now.

What’s your happy S word?

And what’s your favorite soup?

Here’s the recipe for the one I’ll have simmering

while I’m in church on this otherwise gloomy Sunday.

I won’t do the on-the-stove method suggested here:

This is the cookbook in which I found that nice, simple recipe. It’s a great book:

I had some leeks from a neighbors garden that needed to be used.

Great way to do so, don’t you think?

Ah yes, homemade soup makes me happy!

Cheer me up with a recipe and an S word of your own!

You Are My Sunshine


You Are My Sunshine.

When http://www.thoughtsfromanamericanwoman.wordpress.com posted this song, I reposted it on my FB page. Several of my friends commented – so I know it spread a few smiles and rays of sunshine to a few people I care about. Time to sprinkle sunshine around a bit more… it’s one of those happy mornings when you, my blogging “Sunshine Friends,” deserve an Anne Murray greeting. Smilers never LOSE, so let your happy self loose – and join me. Spread the smiles today!
