Today, I just love today.
I didn’t watch a musical featuring a truly sexy Andrew Jackson, like on Friday, I didn’t hit the town with a pair of fabulous young men, like Saturday, but today was still nice.
Today, I love western Washington. I made my second visit to Edmonds and fell even more in love. The cute downtown, the water, the trees, the small-town feel even though it is minutes from Seattle, I just love it. Of course, I have plans with my ladies to move there, but I don’t know if they know I am completely and utterly serious and would move there today,
It was a pleasant visit with good company and just made my heart happy.
And then I drove home through that western Washington has to offer.
Today, I love trees.
It may seem like a silly thing, especially people who have lived in that area their whole lives. I know I certainly took them for granted. People would visit and remark how green everything is. I remember being confused by their wonder.
I didn’t realize how much I missed trees until I had lived in Othello for a while and was used to seeing fields instead.
Now, as I drive down from the pass, I just stare and state at these densely wooded areas. The more trees the more I can actually feel the stress knots in my shoulders melt.
I hope even when I move back to the west side, I don’t lose this amazement of the vegetation.
Side note: today, I also love cell phones. I was caught in traffic on the way to Edmonds and showed up 20 minutes late. A cell phone is the difference between “damn traffic, I’ll be there soon,” and “I think I may have been stood up…”
Plus, when I’m lost, my phone helps me find my way home. Seriously, what did people do without these things?
