Here's MY Happy thought, Peter!

Do you ever just see or hear something that makes life BETTER?

Exhibit A:

Little kids have this UNENDLESS energy and confidence.  I know I had it when I was her age.  It just gets so chipped away at by the world.  Somehow we have GOT to get it back.

Exhibit B: Ola and EVERYTHING he says to me.

Exhibit C. If all else fails, Eat Nutrigrain.

Critters and Ola. Yup, Luv.

True to my title Life of a Crazy Cat Lady (Sans Cats) this weekend I tentative have adopted another critter into my life and I already adore her.  Squall's little girls, JanBrady and Mini-Squall had a chinchilla named Snowflake at their Dad, G's house.  And he decided to dump it to I have her now.  I have borrowed her a few times already to do Critters 2 Go.  But now she is mine (until my Padre flips out.  He KNOWS, but is just sorta grumbling and accepting).  I am also re-naming her Fable, except around the Squalls kiddlets.  She is hopping around the tent with her new toys and just being the adorable, semi-mind-less fluffball she is.  I lWUVSHER!

And speaking of LOVE, MyNigerian pulled me out of a very deep Depression hole this week after I have been sick and I am just so grateful for him I wanted to cry today.  Instead I prayed.  Because SAYING thank you is a lot better than crying it. hee hee!  He is such a blessing.

Let's hear it for Mamas!

This has been a great Mother's Day. All of us kids went to Mom's ward for church.  Including me! I had a headache but made it through.   It was so good to talk about moms, motherhood, and even just having a "mother heart."   It was a very good Sunday. Then they gave all the woman 18 and up (weather they were moms or not) chocolates! YUMMY!

BoyKid and I have been sitting around composing lyrics to one of his many songs on his guitar. I must admit, the kid has TALENT.  Especially his "Wedding Song" and "Shoes."  Good stuff.  Eventually, if he can pull together a band OR get enough confidence to realize he is good enough not to NEED a band he is going to have a good little run of fame.  LITTLE mind you, but MAYBE big as Colors. Maybe.  I have been wearing the little crown I bought at Renaissance Faire all day because *blush* it makes me feel special.  I offered it to Mom to wear because HELLO, MOTHER'S day but she only wore it to receive her present then wanted it off claiming it was uncomfortable, but personally *I* don't mind it at all. Hmmmm...

We gave her a plate we made her at Color Me Mine.  We had our 3 names on it.  She liked it, of course. :)

Yesterday I went with Megs and Rinny to the Renaissance Faire. I was dressed as a Peasant Fairy. I had red butterfly wings. I got a picture with a bunch of other fairies. There was jousting on horses, sword fighting, and wandering sing minstrels. Rinny dressed as a fancy lady. Megan was going to have a costume but at the last moment had to in normal clothes, but as a joke she wore a baseball cap that said "Princess" on it. We had a lot of fun! I was having so much fun, I forgot to get out my camera very much!  But I still got a few pictures that I will put up on Facebook.
Anyway, now BoyKid and I are going to watch Little Mermaid while mom goes and relaxes and reads.  She is going to read The Help, then I am.  *I* am reading the last Fablehaven. :D Yup. hee hee hee!

How Bazaar How Bazaar

Today I went with Megan and T-La to the Beehive Bazaar event at work at the show barn. Sort of like a bunch of Etsy shops live and in person. SUCH cute stuff!  Mostly, I collected  ideas of things *I* can make.  It was a lot of  "oooh! We can do that!"  But I did buy some awesome note pad journal things. So cool!

TOMORROW if going to be another fun day with Megan... RENAISSANCE FAIR!

Sucky Sunday.

I have been a little sad today. I woke up this morning from nightmares... HORRIBLE nightmares... and a screaming headache.  So no, even after meds (all ineffectual) I did NOT make it to church.  Then I watched a fireside which happened to be at BYU-Hawaii and I went from awww I miss it there to Ola would like it there to it would be just as hard to move there as here for him and I could not have my gliders to oh please let him like living here to this gloom about whether I will be enough for him if he DOESN'T like it here.

Today has been sucky.
