Happiness is...

I can't help it. I'm happy.

I've been dancing around in my underwear all morning. Singing along with the radio, and just generally enjoying the moment.

The sun is out, the birds are singing, and I had a lovely weekend.

Saturday was a busy day, spending the morning with my family doing egg hunts and eating breakfast, then spending the afternoon with just one of my many 'extended' families. Just a lot of eating and drinking, laughing, and feeling generally at ease, surrounded by caring people, in the safety of the places I call home.

After handing the ShortBus off to his dad on Sunday morning, CSB and I settled into the couch and a day of movie watching. I had planned to make breakfast, and even attempted to start... when I realized, "I don't know how to make eggs any other way than scrambled and hard boiled." And, honestly, I can't remember the last time I scrambled an egg.

Yes, I know... but until just recently (1) I didn't eat breakfast, and (2) I didn't eat eggs. In the last year or so, I have discovered the wonders of the omelette, and eggs florentine, and have started a new appreciation of the egg. Plus, eggs... a good excuse to eat bacon.

So, CSB ended up making breakfast, and we spent a good part of the day relaxing.

Today has been all smiles, sunshine, an excellent interview (Rion, I promise to call you tomorrow), and I'm seriously considering having chocolate cake for dinner.
