Wow.. what a GREAT day I had today ! Finally, after weeks and weeks of grey, foggy, drizzly weather, it was warm, bright, and SUNNY !
So I jumped in my car and took off to see my daughter and hour or so away.. we had been wanting to go the the park on the river and fly kites, take the dog and the frisbee, and just make a day of it.. but the weather had refused to cooperate.. 'til TODAY !
So there I was, cruisin' up the road, Janis Joplin and Led Zeppelin blasting away.. all around me eyecandy... the mountains and foothills were bursting with life ! The colors were sooooo vivid, the rolling meadows filled with spring blooms and speckled with cows lazily grazing the lush new grasses.. bluebirds chasing each other only to lite on a budding branch to peck and kiss ... dogwoods dressed in pink and white and the hills emerald green against the clear, blue sky... it was just so good to take it all in ! The beauty of it all assaulted my senses, filling them to overflowing...everything inside me rejoiced in simply being ALIVE !!! Anybody else ever just been soooooo glad to just be alive?
Anyway, we flew our kites, chased the frisbees, rolled with the dog and threw sticks in the river for her to swim after... and had one fabulous afternoon.
Such simple pleasures. Life is good.
Thanx for letting me share.
