Good Surprises

Thunderstorms rolled through around 5:00 this morning, I love summer thunder storms ( rarely a tornado in them.)
I saw the streaks of lightening light up the sky, heard the boom of thunder and the sound of pouring rain.
It was a pleasant surprise.

Don't you love the good surprises? You know those little ones, like a summer storm or the first ripe tomato, or maybe biting into the first juicy peach of summer.  Jordan came over and we picked blackberries and blueberries, he can spot those berries that hide in the leaves better than I ever could. He also spied our first ripe tomato today.

Good surprises.......we all love them, we need them to carry us through the bad the winter, I often put small bills in jacket pockets and never take them out, the next fall when I put the jacket on, I reach my hand in the pocket......I am five bucks richer!  What can I say, sometimes you have to plan your surprises.  :)

Another good surprise, we have a gig in Mississippi tomorrow, about a three hour drive......we had planned on driving back sister called, she has a hotel room for us. So now, Jordan and Sam can house sit for us.

This weekend, I hope all of you receive a good surprise, something that will make you smile or even laugh out loud.  I also all get a big hug.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams


  1. My surprise was 1 hour extra sleep this morning, it seems I needed it!
