I can't decide which to be more thankful for this morning:
That Bean accidentally discovered the Barbie™ dolls I had put away from my step-daughter's Barbie™ days.
That my Mom taught me how to make Creamed Chip Beef on Toast back when I still lived at home. And furthermore that I happened to have all the ingredients on hand this very morning.
That the SUN's shining! It's still colder than a well-digger's backside out there, but old Mr. Sunshine's glistening off the thick frosting of ice that covers all the trees and shrubs and drips off every edge and corner. Out every window I pass, I glimpse a dazzling spectacle of brilliant white snow and twinkling lights.
A morning can't get much better, can it? A happy, busy daughter chattering away from the playroom, a gloopy glop of salty dried beef over crusty toast and a magical faerieland twinkling at you from your own back yard.
Sigh... I think I'll go have a spoonful of Nutella™ to top it all off.
