Snippets of a day in the life

Today it snowed and it rained and the sun shone bright. I took my coat off, put it back on, took it back off, put it back on...Froze, sweated, shivered, felt nice. It was the last day of March but it felt like a day that belonged in January.

I saw a coyote, a bald eagle or three, too many deer to count, countless horses and cows, chickens, swans, ducks, geese and a wolf.

I delivered signs and clothing and paper and office supplies and tractor parts and pet food and trees and titles and documents and guns and carseats and books and cd's and whatsits and thingamabobs to one hundred and twelve different addresses over the course of a hundred and fifty three miles in the span of nine point three hours.

I laughed, I talked, I thought, I sang, I prayed, I whistled, I texted, I called, I ate, I drove, I ran, I jumped, I had fun!

My greatest observation of the day (although I've had it before) was this: There is one sure fire way to a woman's heart. Jump out of your truck smiling and hand her a box with these two words on the side....NORDSTROM SHOES. Don't ask me why, but it works every time!

I am wondering about boxes from Cabelas. They must work some magic too? eh?

I'm jealous of the wildlife you get to see at work--different than the kind I see in my fourth grade classroom each day. Probably quieter, too.

For Mark, I had to Google Cabelas.

Thanks for your comment, and for the reminder to cherish today. If I'm this sappy at age 7, I'll be a puddle by 21. :)

Did you really see bald eagles? Wow!

I'm guessing that the nice smile didn't hurt either. :-)

Shoes are great, though I've never bought any from Nordstrom's...but I'm with Mark, I really like Cabelas!

Mark-You are right, Cabela's gets the same reaction too sometimes, but I think it's because the woman knows that her husband will finally get off the couch.

Mcswain-The wildlife IS spectacular here...especially when drenched in sunlight.

amy-I did see some eagles today. I think it's mating season as they were doing some incredible acrobatics...show offs!!
