My weekend was nice 

-I saw the heron (again) and managed to snap a really nice shot with the iphone.  
-on our walk on Saturday the fex ex driver stopped to give Frodo a treat because he loves dogs.  I love knowing and seeing that most people in the world are good
-made chicken noodle soup that was mostly vegetables
-had a lovely visit with my daughter and her boyfriend
-my daughter and her boyfriend became engaged over the weekend (YAY!!)
-bits and pieces of wedding talk mixed with ordinary talk, how sweet and so much fun
-there was church, lots and lots of laundry

Today I am faced with a long list of to dos, a messy house that needs to be put back together again.
