Oh, What a Beautiful Morning...!

Okay. Adam came in second on American Idol, but the forces of nature have joined in a collaborative effort to help me rise above the AI blues. (Aiding them in that worthy goal is the fact that I do like Kris and wish him well.) Not that I wouldn't have preferred Adam, mind you...

And yet I've got a beautiful feeling everything's going my way, though the corn isn't as high as an elephant's eye. In fact, there's no corn whatsoever. Only a lovely view of the mountains and a vineyard across the way. (I think I can make do.)

Today my vacation-deprived husband and I will turn our car...and our gathering at my parent's home in Palm Desert for a reunion with our children and grandchildren. One son will actually ride with us, while another will be driving in from Tucson later tonight. My daughter and her husband plan to join us on Saturday, and my eldest son and his family will arrive for Sunday and Monday, completing our growing group.

Nothing in this world brings me more happiness than having all of my children together under one roof, so my heart is light and my spirits high. Adding to this general feeling of well-being and anticipation is the fact that my favorite show, So You Think You Can Dance, kicks off its new season tonight. I feel a little bit like the proverbial kid in a candy store. (Too bad I'm still on my cookie diet...which, by the way, is actually working!)

And Oh, What A Beautiful Day!

Sue..just had to drop by today to see how you were handling Adam's loss. You are a better woman than I, at least you can like the "other one."
Now, I know your trick...."road trip" especially when for a family vacation. How right you are, NOTHING makes for a better day, week, month or year! Enjoy yourself and those you love!
I guess this time next week I will find some solace....I will actually get to see Natalie and her family......(I am still speaking to her even if she threw Adam under the bus!) :)

Cookie Diet? I am scrolling through your blog to learn more....Snarky would be thrilled if I added something to my H20, Diet Coke, and bacon diet!!!

Have a great trip!!!!

I've been thinking of you all day. Hoping you took the news better than my mother. Which, I can tell by your most positive attitude, you are faring much better than she is.

Have a great trip!!
