Tuesday Evening

I just got in from a lovely dinner with my nephew from Houston, his wife, my son and my daughter.  It is always a marvel to me that I get to have family who I love and who seem to love me and we actually enjoy spending time together.  How cool is that?

I stopped on my way home from work and got a pedicure and manicure which was lovely.  It gave me a good excuse to put my feet on my new jute rug and take a photo.  I think this rug is the cat's meow.  I tried not to buy one for my dining room, but bamboo is so soft, the floor was getting scuffed up from the dining room chairs.  So, now I have a lovely rug to protect my floor - and look beautiful.  It even smells good!  

I have been running since 3:30 this a.m., and I need to get up tomorrow at about that time and go all day tomorrow too.  Getting ready for vacation is really a lot of work!  But fun!

I will meet one of my sponsee's at the meeting tomorrow morning at 6:30.  It is a good thing.   Very good thing.  It is amazing to me how much love can be contained in one little room - an AA meeting.  If you don't understand - keep coming back - you will.

XXXOOOO, MC

Happiness abides here, as I'm reading a "happy-Mary-blog". And I get to see what long-term sobriety is about. The settling of differences, (the lining up of the stars?), the freedom to be you, or to be me, or any of us to be free, and living life, and loving life.

And the capability to look anyone, anywhere, in the eye, smile, and see God there...what a beautiful benefit. So grateful again.

glad I stayed long enough to understand this and to know it is true in my life.

have a great day.

I love the pedicure! So cute! Love the rug too. Jute rugs are my favorite. I have a couple in my house and you are right, they smell delicious. Have a wonderful day showing off your pedicure. :-)

I understand!

There are great felt sticky pads we put under any furniture that will be moved across hard woods. They work great.

As long as you don't run away and forget about us. Nice rug. I can smell it from here.

oooo I have not had a pedicure since my husband lost his job!
I can't open your pic here at work, can't wait till I get home to see the rug (and toes)....I love rugs.

I like the foot photos. And the rug looks nice as a background. Have a great Wednesday.
