~TOP OF MY FRIDGE~
The stormy weather here in Oklahoma (that included yet another EARTHQUAKE last night!) makes me feel unsettled. I love rain, even a down pour. But I don't like storms with torrential rain or the whipping wind that often comes with it. The thunder and the quaking earth were both pretty scary and seemed to shake my La Chaumière de Briarwood to her core. Our chandeliers were swaying, the windows were rattling and our Yorkie, Mollie, was crying to be held... I was so glad when I woke up this morning to fairly clear skies and eagerly welcomed another fresh, new day!
And then I remembered...
My Mr. AGPMan was leaving on a business trip and would be gone a few days...
Even after all these years of marriage I hate it when he's gone.
Oh...I get lots of things done while my hubby is away~ Lots of dusting and spit-shining and he always returns to a super-clean house with all the laundry done and floors mopped!
I still hate it.
Anyway...the sun was just coming up when we said our good-byes. I gave my guy a quick kiss, told him I loved him and said he was in my prayers and off he went. I began my day as I always do by making my bed and then jumping into the shower and planning breakfast.
~FRESH CUT STRAWBERRIES~
Since dropping 40 pounds earlier this year I've worked really hard at keeping the weight off so I pretty much eat the same boring thing every day. Fresh fruit (usually strawberries, blueberries or raspberries if they are in season), cottage cheese (1/2 cup) and a cup of hot tea. Strawberries are always my third choice which is odd because they are my favorite fruit! I'm just lazy sometimes...I hate hulling them!
~PINK ROSEBUD TEACUP~
I put the kettle on, pulled out my favorite teacup (I use it every single day). It's pink and full of tiny pink rosebuds and using it makes me happy! I then opened my refrigerator (that honestly needs to be demoted to the garage and a new one purchased!) to grab my cottage cheese and fruit...
It was then I saw this:
~ LOVE NOTE FROM MY GUY~
And this, my friends, is just one of the many reasons I am happy and blessed...
I'm off to paint more pink rose pretties. They'll be on my website late this evening!
Hope your day is wonderful...
Love to you~
