#147- WATSON FARM, Jamestown RIb

Today was a glorious day.  Today was also my birthday!

Today was so simple.

  I woke up to sun and not rain.

For this I was incredibly grateful.

I took a nice hot shower and tried to clear my head of the nasty cold inside.  It worked for the most part.

 I did start feeling better.

My darling husband baked me a homemade loaf of bread for breakfast and for the first time this spring, we enjoyed a meal outdoors.

The air was crisp, the sun felt warm. It felt great to be alive!

Next we walked into town for the Memorial Day Parade.

For the first time in my life, I really feel like part of a community.  The kids and I waved to everyone we knew as they marched by.  It is so cool to be part of a small town!

We came back home and each of us did our own thing for a while.  It was very peaceful.  My daughter read, my husband and son played a game and I painted a landscape watercolor outdoors.

It was perfectly tranquil.

Next we were lucky enough to be invited to our neighbors for a barbecue. It was great to bask in the sun and watch all the kids run around. I might have even sipped a little tequila – I might have ;)

and to finish off the day, we walked back into town to meet up with some old friends for great big ice-cream cones.  They were even thoughtful enough to bring a candle and sing me happy birthday.

Today I turned 39.

I had no grand plans.  I accomplished no grandiose tasks.

Instead it was a quiet day.  A peaceful day.

It was sweet & simple.

And I couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Thank you!
