While walking around Snowbird last Friday with Smith and his niece, she made the comment that I looked very happy. Now we all know that happiness is a state of mind, but at is this time of year and this perfect weather , it is easy to achieve that state of mind.
This feeling has several sources, not least of which is the beautiful blue color of our nearly cloudless sky. It may not last but, it will be back.
The mountains are so beautiful with their deep green foliage (usually not see in these parts) and their pure white snowy peaks.
It is not too hot or too cold to have the windows of our home open 24/7. The soft breeze feels good on the skin. The fine yellow pine tree pollen that covers many surfaces is to be ignored.
My toes have been newly pampered and painted and will be free all summer in Tevas, sandals and flip flops (sans fuzzy fur).
There are new summer clothes in my closet and fun summer sweaters on my needles (and my body).
After 5 years of upper back pain it has waned due to a bra that fits per.fect.ly. (You have no idea!)
My lower back is feeling good and I can come within an inch and a half of touching my toes, instead of a foot and a half.
Fresh fruits and veggies are starting to appear in the market in abundance and the local Farmers Market will open in a couple of weeks.
The music festival season starts soon. Knitting and music...what could be more perfect?
The Estes Park Wool Market is less than a month away.
We can eat dinner most evenings on our patio. I can knit there comfortably, too.
The best canyons in the Wasatch Range are 10 minutes flat from our front door.
Hiking will ensue shortly.
We have a long weekend coming.
Out of the corner of my eye, the ceiling fan in my bedroom reminds me of a Bogie and Bacall B&W movie.
My world is full of color.
It's all good.
