Well hello my sweet ones, how are you on this lovely Monday morning? Actually, it’s not really all that lovely around here – it’s dark and wet but with it I like the coziness of my home with my morning tea next to me….
I hope everything’s good with you my friend and you’ve had an enjoyable and restful weekend.
Are you feeling Happy? I’m sure there’s something you could be happy about.
Here’s why I’m cheery in a jump up and down kind of way….
- if I squint and really concentrate, I can see the new kitchen all done
(that said, it’s not really done but things are in place and it’s down to the annoying little details – with that I must say I’ve turned into a jumping monkey every time I walk into the kitchen. A jumping monkey, you ask? Well, yes, I express my joy by literally jumping and screaming with excitement – except I think it ends up being this very annoying sound instead – and this happens several times a day! I can’t help it, I’m happy and I show it!)
- if I look really close and observe the man I live with, I cannot believe he’s the same man I married.
(someone please pinch me because he’s unreal! He has put so much work into this reno in the last 2 months that I cannot believe this is really happening. I mean, I’ve known the man for 15 years – you think you’d really know someone after so long – but then one day he transforms into this sexy handyman, fixer-upper, builder, installer, plumber, electrician – simply put a superman, and did I say sexy? It’s weird but I find a man with power tools very hot - this is very new and I like it. I hope he’ll just never stop! I could use a new laundry room after this ;) lol
- if I blink I’m worried I’ll miss precious moments of my daughter’s childhood
(do all parents go crazy about their children? I suppose so. And I certainly hope so. But let me tell you, my little girl is just so brilliant! The conversations we have, the curiosity she expresses, the artistic abilities she has, her laughter, her voice, her wanting to hold my hand, her wanting to cuddle. I could just submerge my whole self and enjoy this forever. )
- if I sew myself a cape maybe I’ll turn into a Superwoman by noon, because let me tell you – I realized I lost my powers! And that’s ok ~ that actually makes me happy.
(I chose a long walk with my daughter and a visit to a friend’s house over cleaning, and I chose crafting and cutting up flower petals for my girl than cooking a Sunday dinner.) I did some housework but I decided the cape can wait – why waste a beautiful day on housework anyway! I’m no Superwoman and that makes me happy!
What makes you happy today?
ps. I have this great video to show you for this Monday morning ;) Have a great week ahead!
