This week, I'm celebrating. . .

1) Fresh baked muffins!  My oldest got up at 5:00am yesterday morning to bake muffins. WHY???? Yes, this was a huge question in my mind. He's 17. They sleep in. They don't do things like that. Hmmmm.... He claims that he thought it'd be nice for everyone to wake up to. And he swept my kitchen floor. And he cleaned out my dishwasher. And he washed dishes. And he made me a fresh hot tea the minute I stepped into the kitchen. I am wowed. (And a little part of me is wondering what he's hiding...)

2) Herbs! I picked up several packages of seed this week and can't wait to plant them. I had such a lovely herb garden in nice to just go out and pick whatever one it's time to get that back.

3) Auctions start again!!! Private auctions are a BIG thing around here...I think it's a form of farmer entertainment. Anyway, I have a nice list of things I need (ranging from cabinets, to fencing supplies, to ...well, all sorts of things), and auctions are a great way to get fantastic deals. I'm hoping tomorrow there will be a pot of gold at the end of my rainbow.

And what about you? Are you going to remember to be happy today and smile everywhere you go? What wonderful things happened to you this week???
