A Day of Unexpected Joy!

You know how you make plans to just play? You never quite know if it will be fun, you might have to cancel or you just get too busy to go. Well we had an absolutely perfect day! Dave decided he would like to try ice skating this weekend. Yup, you heard me, ice skating. My first thought was should a 48 year old man with twigs for legs be doing this. Then I thought should a 44 year old with temperature issues be at an ice rink.

We woke up both in good moods, the day was free and it was a sunny 70 degrees, with snow still on the ground in the shade. The poor snow trodden daffodils were even standing up in full bloom. The planets aligned and so ice skating it would be. We went up into the pines and found the quaint little town with a indoor rink. I was layered well and Dave was as excited as the kids there. Dave was a natural, he never even fell. Every time he went around I waved and never took my eyes off him. I am so proud I married such a fun loving, adventurous man. We never stopped smiling. :)

We left and the sun was so warm we stopped for lunch at a grill and ate outside. Coconut shrimp, potato skins, onion rings and a burger. Wow did I pig out! We came home, put on the sweats and watched a DVD.

Never forget to just play!

I put pictures in Flickr, they are not very good because he kept moving. lol

This sounds like such a wonderful day...I'm glad you shared it with us. And thanks for the reminder to play! Far too often, I forget how important play is for all of us.
Sending lots of love,

Sounds like a great way to spend the day...the photos are great. You are a lucky, both of you and it shows in your smiles that you both know it.

The song on my blog that you asked about is called Why Am I Living This Way by a group called Insane Jane that I saw in Atlanta in 1990 or 1991. She has a powerful voice and can really rock.

If you email me to let me know where to send it, I'll get you the mp3.

I'm so glad you had a good day and just played, Tammy. We all need that once in awhile.
P.S. If you could send me your new email address, I'd be much obliged. Your old one seems inoperative.

The two of you look soooo happy in that photograph, and then while I read your account of the day you had, it was clear you were still as happy by day's end.

I smiled a lot knowing that.

I always love reading your posts, and this is no exception! What a great day the two of you had, and I feel like I got to be there with you. I'm going to go check out your pics, now, but thank you so much for sharing your happiness.
