This is why I call it the Tree House. The tree grows right up through the deck...or rather they built the deck around the tree but it's more fun to say the tree grew up through my deck. And my world is about fun now. It's my choice.
It's a holiday weekend here in the US. The official start of summer even though it's still spring. Pull out your white shoes. I just cracked myself up....again. Do I even OWN a pair of white shoes??? OH.... yes, I do. My hiking sneakers. Well, in that case I better go put them on. I'm meeting Superman for a walk and dinner.
The lake here at the tree house will be jammin'. I'll have my tunes on. I'll be watching the boats go by. Kayaking, grilling, chilling, and most of all, being grateful to be able to soak it all in. This time last year I was hurtin' for certain. Neck brace, both of my knees to my toes were swollen like watermelons,... I could barely lift my arms to tip a cup to my lips or open a door. I chopped my hair off because I couldn't lift my arms to comb it.
This year I'm painting pictures of poppies, and clouds, and my son, and taking pictures every chance I get. I'm writing that "book" I always said I would "one day"...... I am a new grandma, and lived to see the sweetest baby in the entire world, my precious Emery. I got engaged to Superman. I have 3 new daughters. One is my son's new wife and the other 2 are Superman's daughters. Add one more son, a Marine to the list. How cool is that?? I gained a grandson named Devon, a budding artist. Another grandson on the way--due in July. Two new son-in-laws, and a huge family-in-law.Oh, yes, and a sweet lab-mix named Canaan. I am so very blessed.
How sweet it is to look back, and see how far I've come. I know I have some friends out here in Blog Land who understand exactly how I feel. I salute each and everyone of you for persevering. I borrowed this song that's playing and the next one, Simple Life, from my friend, Nolly Posh.
Enjoy my playlist.
Enjoy your weekend and be safe, everyone.
