Farmers' Markets are awesome. Got to spend the weekend with my granddaughter, which was awesome. About to take my dogs for an awesome walk. Awesome thread by the way.

In case you folks missed it, I am gearing up for an awesome day....

It's a spectacular day here! I love my husband, love my job, my sons are happy and healthy...living the dream :-)

I'm seeing today as mostly pretty awesome, has to be because it can't get too much worse than yesterday. (that is a topic for another thread though)

I know that is not really the best reason to see today as great, but it is the starting block for today... I'll see how it goes after a couple hours.

We saw a great Indonesian action film (Raid: The Redemption)on Friday, I had decent sales at my art booth on Saturday morning, an enjoyable dinner party with friends on Saturday evening, got the house clean on Sunday morning, and pizza and good friends over for gaming Sunday night. I have a big package of leftover homemade dolmades with tzatziki sauce and a big pot of homemade hummus with lavash to eat my way through this week.

A group of my friends picks an ethnic cuisine around which to center a monthly dinner party. February was Cajun and Creole cuisine to celebrate Mardi Gras. In March it was Irish food to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. April was Mediterranean food to welcome spring. May will be Mexican food on Cinco de Mayo.

I woke up on this side of the dirt again, another bonus day. There are green things poking out of the ground and I've actually seen a Crocus and a few Daffodils.

I just perfected my recipe for coconut base ice cream, this time with whole blueberries, banana, and white chocolate! I'm pretty sure it tastes just like heaven.

Got some cleaning that I've needed to do done this weekend, plus I (mostly) tuned up my bike and got in a short ten mile ride. I still have to restring the rear wheel, but it is almost true and totally useable for now.

Today, it is totally beautiful (almost hot) and I rode my bike to work for the first time this year.

Later today, we are going out for wings and beer after work and I'll get to see some people that I haven't seen for a long time.

We're taking our 1 year old and 3 year old to Disney World in 3 weeks and it's going to be amazing. My sister is coming along to lend a hand, and although it's going to be a crazy 4 days I am stoked about it. Really feeling blessed that we are in a financial situation that allows us to do this without fully breaking the bank.

Also got 2 more boxes built and filled for the wife's garden over the weekend. Feeling like a useful husband is the best.

@pamfenway: As a Rays fan, I won't complain here in this thread since it would be inappropriate. However, I am happy we beat the Yankees. I'm sure you would agree to that one.

vote-for8vote-against

@wnyx585am: If it makes you feel any better, the Rays just beat the Sox 1-0. And, of course, Sox fans are always happy when any team beats the Yanks. ;)

@pamfenway: Wow, this really is a positive thread! I'll take what I can get!

Oops, I'm in the wrong place. I thought this was the anti-rent demonstration. Gee, I even made protest signs.

A friend of mine just finished the Boston Marathon. Now, there is no way in <:-| that I will ever even consider running for 40 KM straight, but now I can feel the joy vicariously. AND the sun is shining.

LIFE IS WONDERFUL. I am married to the love of my life. I adopted a doggy from the Humane Society. My mother-in-law beat cancer. I returned to college at 40 years old and graduate in two weeks. I am accepted to three colleges for Grad School.
The last few years I have achieved dreams I thought I never could achieve.

Woke up on the green side of the grass! The North Florida sun was shining, the temp was reasonable, and the humidity is still low. And now, at nearly 8pm, there's a nice little breeze outside. Spouse and I are both employed in fairly good jobs, the dogs still worship us, my son and DIL are still crazy in love, and no one is too financially stressed. Life is great!

Wow!! Love a happy place... Going to Savannah Wednesday to meet up with family on their way north. Haven't been there since '82.

Everyone have a wonderful week.
