It's cold outside, but most of you probably don't need me to tell you that. The icy rain has arrived in western NY and I've got a fire (probably the last of the season) started in the wood stove. "Relax and enjoy."
I have one small flower dancing about the house today. She's been scratched by the cat (not good...) and is now proudly showing her battle wounds to Grandma. I can hardly wait until her daddy comes... (read sarcasm here). She's told me already that I am the queen and she and Grandma are the princesses. She has a small plastic, curly haired doll who she's named "Pahvala", and very nice little "baby" lion who has been an almost constant companion the past few days. "Relax and enjoy, relax and enjoy."
Oreo is looking out the window. I thought perhaps he was watching some birds hop about in the cold rain, but there is nothing out there but wet, dead leaves. "Relax and enjoy."
I've got my cup of coffee here in a snowman cup. It seemed a good choice for today... If I forget it's April ("Relax and enjoy") and just listen to the endless chatter of one small child, I may find myself not so stressed by the end of the day. I may even find myself smiling.
PS. Thanks, Betsy. :0)
PPS. Listening to Rocky torment Grandma... "Relax and enjoy." ;0)
