Things that have delighted me recently...

....or at least made me smile.

*Hearing the DJ on 101.9 the end use the word inordinately.  I thought I was the only one that ever used that word!  And then to make it even better...about 45 minutes later I heard my cousin use the same word.  It's the grammar geek coming out in me...

*Y-U-M-M-Y birthday cake.

*And in direct contradiction to the above...I've lost a few pounds.  My scale and I are friends again.

*There are baby cows in the field behind my house.  Like, seven of them or something.  Is it weird if I admit that I got a little misty-eyed the first time I noticed them playing around out there?

*Lilian is registered for Kindergarten!  Immunizations done and everything.  I made it, people!  I'm back to the point I was 6 years ago when I was getting ready to send Brandon, my last child (or so I thought at the time) to school....and was excitedly making plans for this new phase of life I was heading into.  Lilian changed all that and I've never regretted having our little caboose for one instant!  But I'm not going to deny that it was hard, that six year gap.

*"Tangled Ever After."  It was on the Disney channel the other day.  I laughed really hard.

*Lightning and thunder storms.

*The song "We Are Young" by FUN.

*Also the song "1000 Years" by Christina Perri.  Just go ahead and forget that it's from the "Breaking Dawn" movie...it's just a really cool song.

*Reading "The Hunger Games" to Brandon.  "This book is SO good, Mom!"

*Realizing the grass is starting to turn green.  Not MY grass, mind you.  My back lawn is in sorry shape, what with the ugly scar from trenching for the building last summer and the bugs that have decided to make my grass their home.  (My Trugreen lawn care representative agrees that "it's pretty bad back there.")  But grass in general.  It's getting green.  It makes me happy.
