A Beautiful day...

Good Morning Company Girls!

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day in the neighborhood,..would you be mine, would you be mine......

Okay, okay..so I used to watch Mr. Rogers with my kids many moons ago....he was always so calming.....

Anyways, it's a good day today...we've had rain on and off all week...this morning is overcast but so far..no rain....one marvellous thing with ll the rain and the warm weather we had before the rain is the beautiful green grass that is changing everywhere....I sit here looking across at my neighbor where I see beautiful bright green grass with gorgeous yellow forsythia blooming ...the yellow against the green is so...spring like.....I love spring....it is my most favourite season! I was thinking about the forsythia blooming and thought that the grass isn't usually green when it blooms..it's usually still that ugly yellowy-brown.....the forsythia blooming also reminds me that I'll need to figure out how to prune my rose bushes...some people do that in the fall but my grandfather, who grew a lot of roses always did it in the spring...when the forsythia blossomed...so that's what I do...or should I say...my mother always did...she'd faithfully come over every spring and trim my roses and my Rose of Sharon bushes. I don't think she can do that anymore so I guess I'll have to figure it out!......or....see if my sister could help me...her gardens always look fabulous, whereas mine always look like a dog's breakfast, as my mom would say.....maybe I could see if she has a spare few minutes to give me pointers...hmmmmmm.

Hubby came safely back home from California last night which I am eternally grateful for....there's nothing like a comforting, two-armed hug to make the world seem right! Today, he is taking his Friday Day Off....we have to go to the bank...I got a phone message yesterday telling me that my debit card had been compromised and I needed to come in and get a new one.....good grief, why cant these scammers just get a legal job.....then we are going to go and pick up hubby's new (previously owned) car...that we just signed over our lives for the next five years to pay for.....you may remember that he blew the engine on his other car last week.....since it would cost twice as much to fix it then the car was worth, this was the wisest option! Still haven't heard from good old Norman, the tow truck driver (previous post)....maybe hubby will try and call him today too.....then the kids have youth group tonight....I hope we can go and see my dad while they're at that...he's doing a wee bit better.....now they say that when he's gotten rid of this Norwalk that they'll transfer him to rehab to get him stronger before he can come home....a long road I think.

So, it is a beautiful day, heard my little grandson laughing on the phone last night, while his mama tickled him...ever so cute....hope yours is a beautiful day where ever you are....God is good...all the time...even when we cant see it....

Have a good one!

On my - you have really had a lot of activity. I'm so sorry your dad is struggling. I'm praying for him today...and you, too!

It's windy here, but the sun is shining, which makes my mood brighter, even if I am tired. It looks like my son is finally starting to feel a little better. A nap did us both some good.

I'll be praying for your dad as he walks the road to recovery.

Have a good weekend!

So glad to hear that things are a bit better, esp for your dad, poor guy.

And glad your hubby is back safe and sound. Have a wonderful spring weekend! We've had great weather all week, but I hear there might some rain coming this way on Sunday. I hope not. The grass is so green here, but it needs a lot of mowing now.

So glad your hubby got home safely and your daddy is doing a little better!

Enjoy your time with hubby this weekend. We just signed our life away for my husband's new (used) truck as well so I know how you feel!

Blessings!

LOVED Mr. Rogers as a kid... I tend to sing that song when I go out to get the mail somedays... sometimes I forget that I'm singing outloud and get some strange looks! :) Glad your hubbie made it home safely! :)
