unexpected happiness


"Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn't know you left open" -- John Barrymore


The forecast for today called for clear blue skies and temps in the 80s. The reality was overcast, sporatic rain, humid as the day is long and in the 80s. Heavy air, sticky clothes, no real sun. I had wanted to go to the beach, but instead, I ended up doing a lot of errands...put the soft top on the Jeep (long overdue), got some more plants for my container gardens, took some old clothes to the thrift shop, paid bills, cleaned the house, had lunch with my parents, went to the movies with J.

Not the day I had planned. But a very good, productive day, nonetheless.

Sometimes happiness is a day at the beach, sometimes happiness is folding laundry.

I agree. Same thing happened yesterday. Not the day I had planned but a good one. Always glad when that happens. :)

I love the day every year that I change out the dried sad panies for my summer pots. That sounds like a wonderful day.
