That Old Red Van

 100 Happy Days #48001

Oh, this old, sweet, silly, heroic, ridiculous red van.

As you may remember, it tried very hard to die a few months back which led to some exciting, unheard of behavior on my part.

002

But then, what to do with the red van…hmmmmmm?

003

Well, it didn’t seem prudent–or respectful for that matter, to just send it off to the junk yard to be crushed up into tuna cans.

No, no. That wouldn’t be right.

006

So, we had a very kind man come and tow it to the shop for one last fix up.

004

And what do you know? For less than $100 it is up and running just fine…

and on to it’s new home with a sweet new family that promised to love it nearly as much as we have.

Gr vanGood-bye old girl.

You’ve held a special place in our hearts.

We’ll never forget you.

:]

Note: This post was all good and fine until the driver’s side door mechanism went out, totally freaking out the sweet people who wanted to give our old girl a new home. So, sadly…she is being put to rest and recycled. We’ll no one can say we didn’t try.

I’ve decided that whenever I feel a twinge of guilt over it, I’ll just go for a drive in my little Ruby.

That should help.

 

Things To Love~

100 Happy Days #44

081

My lovely pale pink roses that used to be a deep, exotic violet. But since I don’t know enough about roses to make them behave properly–they’ve gone completely wild and have a mind of their own. I think I might just like them better–in spite of that…or perhaps because of it. Sometimes wild is exactly what something needs to be, don’t you think?

043

Sitting outside in the back for the very first time this summer. Breathing in the fresh, warm air and watching my pretty mountains just sitting there too…as they certainly should.

044

Looking up at the lonely little choke cherry tree, that likely won’t bare any fruit at all this year. The birdies will be sad about that for sure. The willow that has grown next to this tree for a million years was removed last week–had to be done–but still, I wonder if our lone tree will be brave enough to carry on without his old friend. I suppose we’ll see.

073

Just the right amount of sun and water for this girlie–also a first for the year. Finally, finally warm enough for the swimsuit and sprinkler to come out. Oh, she’s a brave one with a hose, this girl. The ice cold mountain water would send most kids screaming indoors–but not this water baby. She squeals at every shower and runs right back through for more. Like her mama that way.

071

Mr. Beany having his first–I think–experience with an ice cube. He licked and licked and then stopped suddenly. Tongue freeze, no doubt. Then he acted mad at me the rest of the afternoon, turning his back whenever I’d talk to him…the pill.

031

A warm summer breeze blowing just sturdy enough to give the wind chime a run for it’s money. It was fun to hear and nearly as fun to watch. I imagine a wind chime has a lot of waiting to do in it’s lifetime–for just the right breeze to set it free.

And what about you? What things are you loving today? Hmmmm?

April's Best.Day_.EVER-1 - Copy

This will be short because you need to run right from this place and scoot on over to The {studio} Blog by my sweet, smarty-pants daughter April. She has some big, monumental, incredible, dream-come-true kind of news.

And I couldn’t possibly be more proud.

Quite certain we have the prettiest gutter in the universe today.

Won’t last long.

But for now…

I’ll take it.

100 Happy Days #30

001

You might have no earthly idea what you’re looking at right now–so I’ll tell you. It’s my doTERRA order for this month. Check out all those zeros, would you? Know what those are? Hmmmm? Those represent all the FREE stuff that I got this month by using my Free Product Points. I’ve been in doTERRA for over a year now so I get 30% of everything I spend back in free product credit. Find me a store that does THAT! Anyway, this is my receipt for $198 worth of products that I didn’t pay a dime for, thank you very much. Makes me pretty darn happy. And that’s not to mention the regular income each of my kids and I are getting. Awesome, I tell you.

If you’d like more info on how this works–just let me know. I’m thrilled to blab, especially about doTERRA. I mean seriously–

who doesn’t like amazing stuff~

when you can get it for

FREE?
