When something semi exciting happens to me I like to note it as a highlight.  I'll say something along the lines of "well that was the highlight of my day" or if I do something nice like let someone merge into my lane during traffic or let someone walk across the street I say "that was my good deed for the day."  Yes I talk to myself....like you don't.  A highlight can be anything like a new pair of shoes, making a yellow light in traffic, and walking into the flower freezer at the grocery store.  It's all about the little things.  If your grocery store has a "flower refrigerator" stick your head in there and enjoy some free smells.  Do it.  I am lucky enough where I can actually walk into mine (it's that big).  Every single time I go to the grocery store I have to walk in there.....it's freezing but I love it.  But this past Monday my mom and I went to our favorite Antique Mall.  We can easily lose track of time in there because there are so many goodies.  Well during this visit we found at least 20 boxes of vinyl records (those round black things that play music for the youngsters) and we so lost track of time.  People were walking by pointing and staring at the crazy people (my mom and I) who were hogging all the boxes and oooohing and awwwing over every other record.  And of course we had to look at every single record, just to make sure we didn't miss anything.  This was considered a big highlight of my day.  :)

Growing up as an only child, I spent a lot of time in my room listening to music.  I was lucky enough to have cool parents who listened to cool music and gave me a pretty sweet stereo system at a young age.  My parents also had a large record collection in which I would come home from school and rock out to everything from Jackson 5, Steve Miller Band and Elton John.  My dad was really into Motown and Southern Rock and my mom listened to just about everything.  She's a "age of aquarius" disco loving Donny Osmond kind of gal.  My mom also has a thang for The Mamas and The Papas, which was passed down to me....just like her obsession of dishes, red wine, and gardening.  :)

No, I have not cleaned them yet....

Have a great week!
And remember to stick your head in the flower freezer..... :)
