This is a good day

I have in a tin bucket -
new baby carrots
yellow baby potatoes
and the sweetest onions I have ever smelt

I am listening to my wee one #2 and 3 make themselves a salad
with the lettuce they picked themselves. They are excited - pretending they are farmers.

I love gardening. Maybe I should pretend I am a farmer too.

I am about to mix a drink and make supper.
Maybe I should pretend I am a chef.

I have just finished hours of shoveling - filling back in a ditch that provided a spot for the electrical cord to go for my/our new lamp posts that now line the driveway.
Maybe I should pretend I am a handy-man (no need to pretend here)

This is a good day.

Maybe it's time to stop pretending you're pretending. Sounds like you're the real deal in so many ways!

OK you're a mother of four right? so that automatically makes you a chef, handyman, farmer, accountant, doctor, litigator, negotiatior, shrink, janitor, back bone and anything else that pops up in the course of a day! I'm with Bonnie... you're more than qualified to stop pretending! and I think you deserve that drink. :o)

Love the part about the fresh lettuce...

Yep, I'm sure you are all that and much more, without the pretending.

It's always a good day when you feel like you are getting things done. It is a feeling of triumph.
