Beautiful Day

by sarahmfry, September 22, 2010
Oh yes, I think it's going to be a beautiful day. 

I've spent a few minutes making good use of the endorphins from my run to do a little vigorous facebook surfing. 

Caiden is playing VBS songs on (i kid you not) a 4-note violin pitchpipe
Corin is playing with violin rosin at the piano. 

David stayed with the boys and left late for his study day so I didn't have to get up at 5:30am to run
(love that man). 

My friend called last night and offered to keep all of our kids sometime while we go on a date!

My mom and I went on a midnight shopping excursion last night.  I got to watch the coupon queen in action....she is completely amazing!!   CVS should be afraid - very afraid - when they see her coming.

And she spoiled me and my budget completely rotten with all of her amazing purchases. 

We bought some lovely dark chocolate infused with coffee and anise for a song.....and we talked about Grandma Parsons while we ate it.

We accidently stole some Right Guard. Still laughing.

I got my carpet shampooed yesterday and some other projects that make my heart-sigh-happy, so that also feels very good today.

And the plumbing/sewer man came yesterday and cleaned the vigorous roots out of the system so there's no fear of a repeat of last year's toilet explosion for another year! 

Mom and Dad stopped by to spend the night with us on their way back from an awesome excursion to Chicago.  They took us out to eat and listened to the kids show off their current violin, cello and piano songs and we had a fun, relaxing time.  They dropped the girls off at school this morning on their way back to Cincinnati.  It's so fun to see them relaxing.

What a treat!    

Caiden stops dancing in the kitchen (in his underwear - to VBS songs) periodically to kiss his mamma. 

He wants me to touch and smell his cool dead, dried-out frog that he found outside yesterday.

Wednesday is laundry & closets day.  There isn't much left to wash and it is ready to be rebooted.

I have a new video to watch while I fold laundry today.....found it last night for 5 bucks!....a 20 CD set of old classic musicals with Legends like Sinatra, Astaire, Garland, and the Andrews Sisters.  Happiness.  Almost makes me wish I was behind on my laundry so I'd have to fold a long, long time.  Maybe I'll just slowly match socks or sort my closet. : )

Tonight is Kids Club at church.  My kids LOVE kids club!  And cookies and marshmallows and popcorn and stories and songs and games.  Thanks, Angie!

Corin is 14 months old today.  He is quite possibly the most delightful baby on the planet.  He is ready for his morning nap and I get to go hold and rock and squeeze and kiss him for a minute.

I have some new great food from my shopping yesterday that is low in WW points and a yummy breakfast  (High fiber cottage cheese with key lime pie yogurt and sliced bananas.....and maybe even a light Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino with a squirt of lowfat cream! 

What more could a girl want, really?

A beautiful Wednesday to you!
