Happy Thursday to you!

You know where you just have a good day?

This is one of those days.

Yesterday I went home and did not exercise, but whatever. I did walk to the library, which I think should count even though it was the nearby library because it is really, really hot out there.

So it counts.

Then I went home and tidied up the place and attempted some projects and when Cody came home we ate more watermelon.

We even watched some TV, which we almost never do on the nights he works because he comes home and we talk and the whole time I'm trying to hustle him into the shower because he smells and it's late and we need to go to bed so I can get up in the morning. But last night, we had snacks and watched TV on DVD together and I fell asleep on him before we went to bed.

Then I woke up in a good mood this morning.

I had time to make coffee (I skipped it yesterday and that was a horrible idea), fix my hair, put on some makeup, and dig out a dress.

This dress, actually.

See how happy I am to be happy and feel pretty?
(I may not really look that pretty, but I feel it.
And I love my one dimple.)

This was a failed attempt at using the self-timer, but I like how it turned out.

I've got some flowery shoes and I had chicken and dumplings for lunch and this day, while not even remotely remarkable, is just really, really nice.

And it's just so nice to feel cute and alert and happy.

And I wanted to tell you that, and that I hope you feel the same way.

And if you don't, I hope you get some watermelon very soon that changes all that.
