Happiness Is...

I'm happy tonight because:

(1) The Diocesan Convention in Little Rock is over. Our church was in charge of 'hospitality', meaning coffee, tea, fruit, veggies, cookies and snacks of all sorts.  We didn't have to provide the noon meal; it was a catered box lunch.  I served behind the scenes washing dishes for over five hours. Let me hasten to say that I actually like to wash dishes. The convention had 300 attendees, and I washed about 1,200 glass coffee cups, and sink after sink full of water glasses, silverware, serving utensils, serving trays, bowls, etc. 

(2) Stamp Camp has come and gone.  My stamping partner got the show underway since I was still at the convention, but I arrived in time to do a bit of visiting with the attendees and to help take it down and pack it up.

(3) Gardening Daughter's husband called right after noon and invited me to have supper with the family since he knew I was working at the convention and Stamp Camp most of the day and probably wouldn't feel like preparing a meal. I gratefully accepted. Good supper!

(4) Gardening Daughter rubbed my feet before I came home.

(5) I have already set all my clocks ahead for Daylight Saving Time (which I abhor!) and have set my alarm clock for a reasonable hour.  

Tomorrow is also a day.

Supper and a foot rub - what a great daughter!

You really do have a full plate of happiness.
It is funny, I also volunteer for dish duty. I too enjoy diswashing. This house came with a dishwasher that I have never used.
What a great daughter with the foot rubs and dinner.
Now relax.

After all of that I hope you have a week enjoying what looks to be a SPRING-like day from M-F.

If I feel like it I am going to Branson with best friend and hubbyy to shop for shoes and on th Springfield to Sams.

I do not have to do any driving as husband and BF are splitting it. We usually eat one meal out.

I hope I hold up with no emergency room stops but we know where all the hospitals are.

Finally have appointment pre-ablation schedule which now looks like May.

Changed clocks last night which makes me have to figure hout this one touchy med I have to take at a precise time.
