Thanks for making it feel like I’m in a movie.
I always thought movie producers had to speed up the rain storm, but now I know that they really can just dump a whole cloud within minutes.
It makes me feel like I’m in the beautiful Notebook scene.
I first thought it was the garbage man coming to take away our trash, but turns out thunder and garbage trucks sound similar. It also provides Carmen with entertainment and something to watch outside the window.
I just hope you don’t ruin our trip to Tyler this weekend.
I love wildflowers.
My mom had wildflowers pressed and framed, and I remember ever since I was a little girl loving it. I even picked some of my own and kept them in a journal.
That is one thing I love about our new place here. There are wildflowers all over!
In fact, there is a local news report that shows some beautiful shots of the wildflowers. Don’t know how that made it’s way into the news, but hey, it works.
There are some beautiful wildflowers here. I love driving down and seeing them all line the highway.
“Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844
“I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.”
“Pluck not the wayside flower; It is the traveler’s dower.”
“Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair…”

If you ever think you’re getting to old, just say “Duh” a few times and you’ll feel better.
I’m not talking about the mean use of duh, that makes people feel dumb. Not like, “Duh I took out the trash, you idiot.” Not sure if people still use that in their vocabulary. Hopefully that died out after you turned 11 or so.
I’m talking about the ultra-valley girl, duh.
My awesome roommate from college would drop a duh every so often. I actually really liked it. It totally fit her personality… like duh! It just has to make you smile.
It’s more of, “I agree.” Here’s an example convo, in case you want to start incorporating this word into your everyday vocab:
“Hey, have you heard this new song? I totally thought of you when I heard it.”
“Duh, it’s like my favorite song.”
So that’s my word for today.
