Bubbles and Other Shenanigans on a Spring Evening

I’m so happy it’s spring because we’re getting back to the days of doing fun things like this at 7 pm when it’s still light out.  The weather is just the right temperature for shorts but not hot enough to boil you.  If only it could always be like this!  How I wish I could bottle these moments up forever…  This is why I blog.


Wordless Wednesday

Special Delivery

I had a lovely surprise waiting for me on my doorstep on Friday afternoon.  It could not have come at a better time.  If you recall, Friday was Cutie Pie’s Spring Fling.  I was hot, tired and a little stressed after I when I arrived home after cleaning up the event then meeting my mom for lunch.  The unexpected brown box on my doorstep was a welcome sight.  Aren’t brown boxes almost always a welcome sight?  Happy things usually arrive in brown boxes.

Inside I found the perfect gift from a sweet Internet friend.  Bethany had been reading some posts about my family drama and thoughtfully sent me this little pick-me-up.  She wrote the words from one of my blog entries around a dottery circle on the side.  It says, “Life is pretty sweet out here on the fringe”.  Like I said- perfect!

This is my new favorite coffee mug.  I had been using the blue dottery coffee mug that I commissioned from her years ago.  It had become a little faded and chipped from daily use and washing.  Every time I use my new mug I think how great the Internet can be that I can make friends with someone who knew just what to do to make my day.

Thank you so very much, Bethany!  Your thoughtfulness means the world to me.
