A Great Morning!

I'm having one of those Great Mornings! A lot of times we remember the not so good ones, and we like to talk about it. But not today.

I woke up on my own this morning to a lot of wind, but still it was on my own. No alarm clock today. I actually saw daylight before it even went off. That's good for me! I sat up in bed and read some in a book that I'm really into right now. My husband and my furry child were asleep beside me.

After Ryan headed to work, I did some finishing touches to the house before my parents arrive. The house smells of burning candles and it rained hard this morning. I've been listening to records all morning. When my uncle passed in August, we were handed ALL of his albums for us to go through to keep or sell. I've been jamming out to Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, The Beatles, and Stevie Wonder...just thinking about my Uncle Dennis and picturing him bouncing and dancing around his house. Knowing he is so proud of me because I'm totally enjoying his music puts a smile on my face.

Now the sun is coming through the clouds and I've been working on knitting a scarf. I'm trying to teach myself how to knit, and with the help of Dolly Parton's Heartbreaker album, I'm well on my way- Finally!

The only thing that could make this day any better would be for Ryan to be at home instead of work!! He'll be home in a few hours, and we'll enjoy some of my favorite food (Taco Salad) with my parents, and thanks to the Presidents of the United States - Ryan and I get to spend the day together tomorrow.

I Love Great Mornings!!! And it's only Noon.

Kari - did I ever tell you that you have a bit of a poet in you - your writing reflects that. And, naturally, you're a great writer, too.

Kari!! It's been a while. I check your blog often but it's time I comment more. Tell Jodi Congrats for me. I can't believe we getting so grown up. Jody is someone's mother now! Can you give me her e-mail address? You can put in on my myspace it you want. Keep in touch.

Kari,
Just wanted you to know that I do read your blog; but don't comment as I should. You are a great writer (as is Ryan)and I enjoy reading about your adventures. I'm so glad that you're enjoying Dennis' albums. You are right -- he is so happy knowing that you're enjoying his collection. He certainly did.

Happy Easter.

Love, Martha
