My son came over Thrusday to mow my lawn for me ... and my grandson (just turned 3) sat here with me watching a baseball game, we worked on counting to 4 on one hand and 3 on the other (balls and strikes), and trying to figure out what animals his animal crackers were.

My son, who lives in Austin, a little over 3 hours from here, made an unexpected trip to Houston. We're going to meet later for a late lunch.

My wedding album fits in our small carry-on rolly suitcase! This is a very good thing because I can't pack the album, it has to ride in the cabin with me. Yay!

I got to read in bed with my coffee and two furry people snuggled up with me.

It's GOING to be - getting together with friends tonight and making a picnic of ceveche and hummus and listening to some swing music downtown under the stars. I guess that's not unexpected though

So far, my unexpected pleasure was breakfast sitting outside in the warm sunshine!

seeing an Indigo Bunting (bird) at the feeder was an unexpected pleasure. I thought they had left already.
