…hit today in the DFW area.

It was so nice to wake this morning knowing that I didn’t have to get up early on this work day. Made me feel so naughty. So I laid in bed all comfy and toasty ~ alone as DH had fallen asleep in his Lazy Boy while watching a movie last night ~ and listened to the sleet hit the windows. There is something so good about that.

I finally forced myself up around 6:00 and headed downstairs to find much needed coffee. Folgers French Vanilla Instant Coffee. Not as good as my tall, nonfat, 7 pump sugar-free vanilla latte from Starbucks, but works good enough to get me up and running.

Note: Folgers is the only brand that tastes good.

I stole DH’s lazy boy and while wrapped in a blanket, I sat by the fireplace thinking.

I realized that I enjoyed that moment as much as I enjoyed Tuesday’s wonderful spring-like weather. The sun dazzled, the sky a blue to die for and the breeze was just cool and dry enough to make you believe this is what the weather is like in heaven. I had to go outside quite a few times and it was all I could do not to twirl around and around like a kid. Not a good idea. I could just fathom one of my big bosses looking out the window and seeing me do this, :rotfl:

I have no clue why I have been feeling like this. Since Thanksgiving. Like the world is just right ~ just as it should be. Everything is good and all is well.

Now, while sitting here listening to my favorite music, I watch the wind outside rush around with its bone numbing cold and snowflakes whirling about, its all I can do not to run out there and twirl like an idiot.

And I can’t stop grinning.

I must be nuts.

I wish I had time to enjoy our weather. It was nice last week and now it’s freezing but with school and work I have no time to laze about in my bed. I’m a little jealous. :eyes:

Sandy Says:

Sarah: Don’t be jealous, LOL! So many times I can’t laze around. But it was kinda nice today. I have learned to take the good things when I can. And to find something to enjoy about the day. Otherwise, what fun is life? Sometimes that is the hardest thing to do, when life (or Me) is not at it’s/my best, but I usually can find something and run with it.

Sandy S Says:

Glad you had a nice day off. I know it was well deserved. I think what you’re blogging about is called Balance. Very hard to come by these days and glad you’ve got it.

I applaud your happiness.

Devon: Thanks! It may not last, but I will take it while I can.
