~~~~~LIFE IS JUST PLAIN GOOD~~~~~

 Today I got up really early and couldn't help but think
"OH WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MORNING!"
(Life is good!)
 Admittedly I spent most of the wee morning hours in my jammies doing NOTHIN'!
One of the PERKS of being self-employed...
(Saturday or NOT!)
At 9:00am sharp I picked up the first of three of my very best friends and off we went for a bite to eat at our favorite Oklahoma Breakfast Dive Restaurant...
(Gotta Love Love LOVE Jimmy's Egg!)
After an itty bit a whole lot of girly-girl chatter the four of us went Tag Sale Shopping.  We couldn't resist a stopover at our local TJ Maxx and ROSS Stores...
(Eeek...so much fun!)
Feeling a bit vexed by the heat and the lack of unlimited ca$h in my pocketbook, I bid good-bye said "see you soon!" to my sweet long-time friends and headed home with my trunk filled with only a few tantalizing goodies...
(OK~So they are business-related!
I still can't wait to show you!)
I pulled into my driveway only to find my beloved, 
aka: "Mr. He-Can-Do-Anything-Man"
working on the brick of our La Chaumière de Briarwood...
(Just for ONE HOUR he said!!!!!)
After loving on that hubster-'o-mine just a teensy-weensy little bit...
(Smooch SMOOCH SMOOOOOOCH...)
And thanking him for all he does for me despite his continual need to study...
(Gotstah get all "A's", you know?) 
 I couldn't help but dance with joy as I thought about all I've been given!!!  I'm an incredibly blessed woman...
(Yes!  Life is good!)
"Thank you, God, for happy days.  Thank you for good friends I can share laughter and fun with...  Thank you for the family I cherish...  Thank you for a little business I love and a hubby I adore...

Thank you for allowing me the privilege of experiencing your grace...

Mostly I want to thank you for reminding me once again that life is precious and that all good things come from you..."

Hope you are having an awesome Saturday!

Love to you...

I am having a quiet Saturday morning. My hubby will be home from work soon. We will probably watch some TV together...my hubs favorite pastime. I have left overs getting warm on the stove. So nothing exciting going on, and that is ok. Tomorrow after church meeting with Candy for lunch...she is in town. It will be Monday before you know it!! Enjoy your time with hubby...

I'm with you!! Peeking out my window right now at Paul working in the backyard. The garden was never his passion until a little of my influence soaked in.

I made it to TJ yesterday for the first time in ages. It was so much fun! I just bought random wonderful stuff. :)

Rebecca, your illustrations match your cute story so well, what with girl friends shoppin' and you smooching on your guy, etc. I often stop and count my blessings and there are a lot of them, like you. Thank you Jesus for all these blessings.

Gosh Rebecca I was feeling the same way today. I became overwhelmed with happiness and gratitude and said out loud in Lowe's parking lot that Life is Good! Yes it was Lowe's. Now I love Lowe's but i didn't know that I loved it that much! LOL!

All kidding aside it was just an exceptionally beautiful day!

Hugs, Sue

I just love a day of hanging out at home with my hubby and having coffee on the patio in the morning and then working on projects around the house. I like a lazy day but also a feeling of doing something productive along the way. Sounds like your day was perfect!~Hugs, Patti
