Sunday’s Smiles

The following made me smile:

  • blackberry cobbler and ice cream

  •  wallpaper removed from an entire room–the wallpaper that covered the entire room

  • my husband helping by removing wallpaper and washing the ceiling

  • lost keys to the rental car found in the refrigerator—I’ll just let you guess who dropped them in there by accident

  • a cotton blanket

  • the fact that I sleep like a baby while staying in the middle of nowhere

  • a mama robin teaching her baby to fly. Unfortunately, it hit the window but the little thing was okay. Just as our kids, some have to learn the hard way.

  • my husband calling me to ‘come look’ at something. Getting all excited thinking it was a baby bunny or some such thing, I happily complied—it was a snake. ugh. His thoughtfulness made me smile though.

  •  I actually went shopping–which is a feat in and of itself–I wore sweatpants, and a 30-year-old flannel shirt that used to be designated for camping only. I wore no make up and hadn’t had a shower. I didn’t care. I didn’t care!! Big accomplishment for me.

  • not too sure I trust the local dentist in Nowhere, Missouri. There are too many one-tooth-wonders. Either there isn’t a town dentist, or the locals simply don’t go.

  • I can now do the squats without causing any major injuries

  • my cats are happy to have me home—I am happy that they are happy

  • a duh moment. I have successfully endured two round trip flights without the aid of Xanax. This time? I knitted. One thing Dr. Chill has been prodding me to do, is to replace a negative with a positive. You know—like eating all afternoon when not hungry–instead, do something I enjoy. I know that knitting calms me and it worked!



About April

I'll come back to this when I find out who I really am. I've been through some extremely rough patches but they have made me a better person. I blog if my brain is functioning first thing in the morning.

    Ooh, the tooth thing…I’ve noticed the same thing along the Kentucky/Ohio border, where my family originally came from. It’s very sad.

    I was just having a conversation this morning with someone about knitting on an airplane. How did you pull that off? They let you take knitting needles in your carry-on? What about scissors? I’m desperate to know!

    Glad you’re home!

      First of all, knitting anything but socks is HARD. I was knitting a scarf with elbows together, but dropped a needle which rolled to the feet of the woman behind me. Next time it will be socks….or a hat. Yes, needles are allowed on planes, which surprises me. Have you ever sat on one? For scissors, I use nail clippers.

  3. I venture to guess Husband left the keys in the refrigerator. Hahahahahahahahaha! 🙂

    A hearty thumbs up to you and knitting. 🙂

    Well done you! That’s worthy of a huge smile from me. 😀

    I wish I could do squats. The knee I broke a few years ago and my lack of balance make it impossible though. I applaud you! 😀

    • April says:

      Ouch! A broken knee must have been very painful. My squats are kind of wobbly, but I am able to get back up many times without falling backward. 😀
