I have only two nights left at my old work and I'm thoroughly thrilled about it ♥

You? Share?
Oh, congrats! Hope the change proves to be a great one.

Me? Hm. I've been super-productive all week, thanks to Todoist. It's kind of amazing to compare how frustrated I was with myself last week to how just, I dunno, good I feel now. Funny the effects a very small change can have.
At this point anything is better than where I am, thanks hun :)

Yes, good lord yes. I love it when a plan for things you have to get done, gets DONE! Makes you feel super accomplished :)
It snowed here last night, just a little bit. Aesthetically, I love a late snow because you end up with a beautiful white crust on the green grass and around the water's edge.
Today is my second child's birthday - she has had a grin on her face since the moment she woke up. Her sister in college emailed her and called, both sets of grandparents called and sang to her, and her cousins in Virginia called in between soccer games to wish her a happy birthday.
I was browsing though an antique (aka junk) store this afternoon while the kids were in school, looking for a frame for a picture I had enlarged of her in the school play, and I also found the perfect desk for my husband (birthday next week). The store owner was so kind - he knocked the price in half and told me he'd deliver it an hour before hubby gets home from work next week!

And the sun came out! And we have one flower poking up out of the otherwise barren flower bed (I'm in chilly VT).

Sounds like you and your family have had a lovely day (or two)--how wonderful. :D

Down in "balmy" Pennsylvania we have daffodils and tulips and hyacinths up all over the place, and the cherry trees are just coming into blossom.
Swift things are beautiful:
Swallows and deer,
And lightening that falls
Bright-veined and clear,
Rivers and meteors,
Wind in the wheat,
The strong-withered horse,
The runner's sure feet.

And slow things are beautiful:
The closing of day,
The pause of the wave
That curves downward to spray,
The ember that crumbles,
The opening flower,
And the ox that moves on
In the quiet of power.

Re: A beautiful tulip
Lovely! The variety of tulip shapes and colors really is something--you can see why the Dutch went nuts over them a couple centuries ago.
I've been married to the love of my life for 16 years. Anniversary was last Saturday. We had Dim Sum to celebrate.
Oh, how wonderful! It's always encouraging to hear about a relationship that's still going strong after many years.
Next weekend I will be at an SPN con with 1400 other fans. J2 will be there, I will be getting more Padahugs and I will be meeting up with lots of friends that I haven't seen in years. It's going to be a massive SPNFamily party!!
