As The Ice Cream Melts

There was a time I was almost asleep when the husband started singing songs he didn't know the words to.  It went something like this:

"Lady, I'm your knight in shining armor and ... I don't know the words ... but I want some strawberry ice cream..." and so it went until I finally said, "Okay, go get your ice cream and watch whatever show you want to watch, but now that I'm not going to get to sleep, will you bring the laptop when you come back?"

"You're once, twice, three times a lady, and I'm going to eat ice cream and you're going to write a blog..."

That time when I was almost asleep was 10 minutes ago.

Do you ever just have a day where you feel that everything is right with the world?

Today was one of those days for me.

My heart is so full of peace and happiness, and I'm grateful for that.

Jason played a piano solo in church today.  It was beautiful.  Later, we went to the Assisted Living Center where Jason played for two more church meetings.  I'm a lucky girl...really.

I'm almost asleep again so I'll give you one story and call it a day.

We were sitting next to Gabi (my five year old niece) at dinner.  Jason put two meatballs on her plate and with a scrunched up face she asked, "What are those?"

"They're meatballs Gabi."

"They look spicy.  Who made them?"

"Uncle Corey made them Gabi."

And then while pointing a finger at Corey, Gabi scowled and said, "You're chopped!"

"He's what?" I asked.

Gabi said, "Raise your hand if you have Dish Network," and then she raised her own hand.  "Chopped is on channel 102."   (I can't really remember the channel, I'll have to ask Gabi tomorrow.)

I cracked up.

A bit later Gabi took a bite of the meatball.  She decided she liked it and said to Corey, "You're not chopped.  You can move on to the next level."

I looked at Gabi's dad and said, "Watch a little TV at your house?"  He just laughed.

Sorry you didn't get your sleep, but it sounds like it was worth being awakened. :o)

If my husband ever started singing made-up songs to me, I would put him in a "home."

I love Chopped! Of course I love almost anything on Food Network channel. :)

Cute that she would "chop" him over the look of the meatballs. LOL

"You're once, twice, three times a lady, and I'm going to eat ice cream and you're going to write a blog..." mean those aren't the words?
Great post as usual!

I sing any and every song that comes on the radio and it drives my wife NUTS! WEll, it used to. Now that my boys sing in the car with me, not so much.

Glad for you that things are going so well. I feel the same way recently, which is bizarre with it being that school is starting.
