The day has finally arrived…everything is packed…car is cleaned out…I am on my way…

“Well in about 25 minutes!”

Rain, Rain, Stay Away…I am going to enjoy myself today!

“I better make sure my rain gear is still in the car.”

These photos are from Arrington Vineyard’s site…guess who will be taking pictures.

Sorry for the short-undetailed post…but I must put my face on! I wouldn’t want to scare anyone.

Peach State says: The Music In The Air!

No! I did not forget…I have had quite the day!

It started by getting my hubby up and out the door…then back to working on that growing pile of clothes. I put on my “Pandora Radio” and sang along with talented favorites as I boogied-down-with-the-soulful-sounds. “Yep I was dancing around!” I was almost done when one of my favorites came on..”Over The Rainbow”….and it just fit the day!

Music In The Air!

Later in the morning I was invited, rather my youngest son was invited, to an afternoon of wet-wild-water-gun-fun.

The gentle winds blew through the greening branches…( the yellow dusty pollen covered surfaces )
The temperature was a pleasant 70+…( no jackets needed while sitting in the sun )
Neighborhood kids running around the corner lot with guns…( water guns and water balloons!…REALLY! )
The perfect time to sit back a relax with friends…postponing the baking a birthday cake (now sitting on the counter cooling!)

We were sitting on the back porch watching the drenched-kids chase each other around the house.
Across the yards..through the trees…carried on the breeze…songs for the singing…including the favorite of the day…”Over the Rainbow”! Music In The Air!

I am looking forward to spending some time with my “now 20 year old son” as we celebrate with a cookout and cake later. Who knows…maybe the song of the day will be playing again so we can enjoy some Music In The Air!

I hope those of you, able to enjoy a little time off, lots of good weather and time with good friends. Listen closely…and you may just hear a little Music In The Air
What song would you like to hear? What song fits your day?
Please let me know…I am compiling a new list of favorites…

Have a great day!

Peach State says: Pick Me Mentality!

First of the month…first day of the week…
“Me…I’m not busy!…”

APRIL FOOLS!

I am sitting here at my kitchen table looking out over my backyard. The rain soaked ground looks a little greener and the yellow haze is gone…for the moment. The bare leave-less branches are beginning to show signs of new life as the fresh green splashes resemble a paint brush dipped into paint. Puffed blossoms of white and pink fill the flowering trees as the signs of Spring complete this picturesque scene. Me…well I will enjoy what I can because my lists are yelling at me. Can you hear them or are you busy tuning your own list out?

Pick Me Mentality!

Each list craving to be completed…begging to be number one. It is so bad that I have started a Master List in my head this morning. “Scary…I know!” ADHD ALERT!
I had placed a piece of paper and a pen next to my latte’ containing cup before deciding to write my blog. I need to go grocery shopping, pick up medicine, drop of medicine for my son at school, drop off dry cleaning and pick up dry cleaning, PT, Chiropractor…( Wait! The last two are not today but Tuesday and Thursday.) I need to re-schedule the one Thursday to accommodate my previously made plans.

(squealing air-brakes from the racing garbage trucks break through interrupting my train of thought)

These far-from-unusual items/duties are nothing compared to the list I am working around. I have penciled in time with a dear friend for lunch this week…time in the music library at church (boy is that needed!)…shopping for some pants to fit a 12 year old who has once again grown out of his jeans and shorts just bought at Christmas. My entire schedule pivots on one certain phone call…

“This the _______ from the surgeon’s office. We have scheduled your surgery for _______.”

We should know something today or tomorrow. The surgeon, my son was sent to, is off this week…soooo…my son asked if one of the other surgeons in the same practice would be able to proceed in a rapid/timely manner. If not we will have to wait till next week to find out a date. “Great…that is Spring Break!” The good news is the fact that we would not have to worry about my youngest’s schedule at school.

Can you hear them? The lists have begun jumping around in true “Donkey” fashion. “Pick me…Pick me!” I have got to work on my menu for the month and from that list make a grocery list…taking into consideration an easy meal for the day of surgery.

Crock-pot meal!

Just thought of another list…things I need to buy not available at the grocery store. Why could I not have a list containing:
Spa day.
Shopping trip with friends.
Trip to the beach.
Maids coming.
Hire a decorator?

I should count myself lucky…I did get my nails done last week and I will be having a maids day ( everyday…I am the maid) and I will be spending quality time with friends even though it won’t be a spoil-me-rotten day of shopping. Time to zap my coffee…Ah! Now that’s better! The constant calling from the jumping-bean lists has been slowed by the flowing warmth from my oversized cup.
Precious Princess is snoring at my feet, content lay curled up in a furry ball.

Call the groomer!

The sun is trying to peek through the overcast morning sky. The dancing shimmers from the wet leaves brighten up the yard. Wow! My ADHD is working overtime this morning. My mind must look like a corporate mail room. Each list is zooming back and forth in to vacuum tubes. As I sit here clicking away each list is growing. Phone calls have been answered adding to the tasks on hand. Fortunately this last call was something my hubby will have to take care of…I had to call and leave a message Friday about changing our landscaping and the possibility of needing approval. The sad thing is we are just making the existing flower beds smaller and leveling out and putting in more grass. You would think we were considering taking down the trees and cementing the front yard. “HeHe!”

This has been fun…just relaxing with you as I tried to organize my thoughts. But I know it is time to face the music and attack the composing of the lists. Have a great day!

Oh…
