I checked the weather forecast for Saturday this morning.
The outlook is cloudy, not too warm, 80% chance of showers.
And then, Alexis showed me another forecast from a different website.
15 degrees Celsius. 20% chance of showers.
Like that a whole lot better!
Yesterday, they predicted rain all morning.
No rain, at any time of the day and 4 degrees warmer than the forecast.
I’m so glad they can’t get the weather right! But then, there is no wrong for the weather. Nothing can really rain on my parade for Saturday. My heart will be bright and sunny and the world all sparkly as C.C. and I say our vows to one another in front of our family and friends.
When I went to pick up the marriage license yesterday, I think the woman serving me at the BC Services office might have thought I might be on something! I couldn’t quit grinning and smiling. But then, by the time we were finished, neither could she! 🙂
Love is in the air and I am embraced by its beauty, casting off ripples of joy all around me!
Alexis and I spent the day the best way a mother and daughter can. Wandering the streets of a small town/city, in and out of shops, trying on weird and wonderful hats, laughing, enjoying each other’s company. And then, lunch at a vineyard overlooking the lake, sharing a bowl of soup and the best potato pancakes ever and a glass of Pinot Gris. We did an impromptu wine tasting at 2 vineyards along the way back and picked up treats for when C.C. and my youngest daughter and her boyfriend arrive. We reveled in the beauty of this place, the joy of being together and the anticipation of the festivities unfolding.
Later, after the other’s arrived, Alexis finished off a University assignment and the four of us played Euchre and chatted back and forth. I think Liseanne calls it ‘smack talk’ — when C.C. waxes eloquent on how they’re going to win with their card-playing prowess only to lose the hand!
This morning, the skies are cloud, grey clouds hanging low over the hills on the other side of the lake. And my heart is light.
I am getting married in two days! I’ve come a long way baby!
All is well with my world from where I sit by the window looking out at the world. In my heart, breath expands in ever increasing circles of love and joy. All is well with my world.
