happiness comes in a cup

oh mother’s day weekend how i love thee…let me count the ways.  as i’ve said before, i’m not one to celebrate hallmark holidays.  it’s too easy to commercialize our relationships as it is.  i don’t need someone to tell me that i need to treasure someone i love by giving them STUFF.  likewise, i don’t want stuff.  i relish the cards from my kids, but for me, mother’s day is about me checking out.  it’s the weekend where i allow myself to not be needed.  i let them fend for themselves.  i know the house will be a sty come monday morning, but for now it’s heaven.  it’s me and my various modes of technical communication and my bed….shh can you hear the angels sing?  

this morning, i had to take the goose to her art class.  on the way home i stopped into starbucks to get a coffee.  i’m not a fancy coffee drinker.  sometimes i forget that.  today they had these cups for sale that look like fancy coffee drink cups.  they’re insulated, with a straw, and a lid that screws on.  have i mentioned how easily tickled i am by little things?  i had to restrain myself from doing the pee pee dance as i waited in line for my venti black coffee and fancy coffee cup.  i have been giggling all afternoon when i fill it up.  in my head, i’m blanca from “Weeds”  sucking on my fancy coffee (mine’s ice water with a splash of cranberry juice).  yep, in my imagination, i am a doe eyed beauty.  sitting in bed as the world happens around me.  happily taking a time out.

it has been a perfect day and i am so very blessed,

    Holy wow! I saw those at the in-the-grocery-store Starbucks today and _seriously_ contemplated one. It didn’t occur to me that I could drink LIQUOR in it. Fill that sucker up with a White Russian and NO ONE WILL BE THE WISER.
