Quayd and I had such a fun day together, then the girls and I had a totally hysterical afternoon. We spent over an hour making (or trying to make) Duck Faces and taking selfies with my camera and the iPad. Oh my gosh, ZJ is such a hoot. She has the attitude down! Grace and I would make the faces and we'd just bust out laughing. We couldn't take pictures for, literally, rolling on the bed laughing at how silly we were. The girls dared me to share them on Facebook. NEVER! Liza suggested not! Here's my question... why do some girls look so cute making duck faces? We've decided that it's not the most flattering thing for us! And it's definitely not something a "more mature" woman should do, let alone consider posting it in a public forum!
Here's a much cuter face... another of Jared's photos.
Yesterday, when Quayd and I pulled in from the garage, I hit the garage door opener to close it and there was a noise that sounded like a crane had just crashed into the garage! We got out and looked all over, trying to figure what had just happened. This morning, when I went to take Quayd to school, the door would only open a foot or so. Quayd got out and looked around. The spring has sprung on the top of the door and the cable is all skiddywhompas. What a mess. Honestly, a new fuel pump in the Expedition two weeks ago, a new fuel tank in Doug's van (they've still not returned the van yet) and now this. I'd say that Sophia will be waiting a bit longer before I get a new fridge. Honestly, when it rains, it pours! Thankfully, Doug's brother, Alan and his wife, Jill, dropped by and came to the rescue. I am now parked in the driveway, so I can go where I need to go today! ANNNNND Thankfully, good friend, Jim Anderson owns a garage door company and will be here to repair it tonight! While I was doing my hair, I just had this thought... sometimes bad things happen so that good things can be allowed to happen...Alan, Jill, Jim are the good things happening today! We are blessed!
I'm off to meet my lunch bunch ladies today. It's been almost four years since we've all been able to get together for lunch. Far too long. I'm looking forward to spending time with these lovely women from my past. We've been friends for over twenty years and keep in touch, we've just not been able to all be together at once. HAPPINESS!
The windows are open and I turned the furnace off this morning. It will be on by dark, I'm sure, but it is beginning to feel like spring is on it's way. Only five more snowstorms, I predict, before summer...because Cache Valley spring lasts only about five minutes and then it's more winter and finally summer! ;)
Life is good even with broken garage doors and refrigerators! I have a lunch date! I'm off!
Just as I was about to hit post... I noticed an email had popped up from Connie. Here's what she said. It made me cry... I saw this poor kid running to school this morning, looking exhausted
as he had to slow down to walk.... gave him a ride to SV. Kind of a cute kid! :)
Like I said, sometimes bad things can happen so that good things can happen.
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
