everything is alright

after a busy few days....or weeks, maybe decades, i was sitting with mia on the deck yesterday.  a stolen moment in between in spring storms and games and whatever else.....we were enjoying some zac brown band and she subtly suggested a beer to celebrate happy hour.  but then a big yawn and a hop over to my side, she was in doggie dreamland....."life is good today"......thanks zac....

that lasted for about 10 minutes.....but it was a damn good 10 minutes...  quality.

good times before more rain

yesterday was a wonderful weather so much, but we went ventured out and went about our sunday.  softball, hoping for sun, this and that, and some cutting of trees, wondering what the hell happened to my shoes last night, etcetera...  

jess collected a billion caterpillar eggs that were coming off the branches i was sheering.... (crap, i hope that thing she collected them in is not inside the house...) i was calling her bindy, the jungle girl...she is the dog whisperer, the snake charmer.....  she was holding a snail yesterday.... ew.  
on friday i ran with my artfully amazing friend, nicole, on some good roads.....  she is a running rock star and a talented artist for hire....  after we ran a trillion miles, she drove me home because i was a weary traveller and my legs were jelly and the loco local landscapers were out in full force spewing their noxious fumes and the air was like the scooby doo episode when he cuts a hole in the pea soup fog from his boat.... anyhow, we got out of her mystery machine and trotted in with little matty, the happy puppy, and nicole noticed there was a heart of sweat on me back....  uncanny.....  she took this awesome soulful snapshot... 

  as i chored around the cottage i came across a cute little picture matty had made...i put it on the fridge....

my wonderful friend ricky shared this with me and now i share it with you...
"I hope the day will be a lighter highway, for friends are found on every road. Can you ever think of any better way for the lost and weary traveller to go? Making friends for the world to see. Let the people know that you got what you need. With a friend at hand you will see the light. If your friends are there then everything is alright."

"Family isn't always blood. It's the people in your life who want you in theirs; the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile, and who love you no matter what."
