Most People Are Good

“I believe kids outta stay kids as long as they can. Turn off the screen, go climb a tree, get dirt on their hands. I believe we gotta forgive and make amends, because nobody gets a second chance to make new old friends. I believe in working hard for what you’ve got. Even if it don’t add up to a hell of a lot. I believe most people are good and most mamas outta qualify for sainthoodI believe this world ain’t half as bad as it looks. I believe most people are good…”

This is one of my favorite “Spring” songs. I love when the weather is nice, windows open, music playing. I think this song is just incredibly sweet, and it always makes me smile. I listened to it, yesterday evening, as I washed and sliced the potatoes I was making for supper. All of the neighborhood kids were playing outside. The dogs chased after balls being thrown for them. After I put the potatoes in the oven, I played basketball outside, with Mj, for awhile. It was one of the most amazing kind of evenings. The kind of memories, that even while I’m making them, I try so hard to soak up as much as I can, because it’s almost magic, the happiness and peace I felt. I think I could maybe just live in those sweet moments forever. These fleeting times, where everything in the world seems absolutely perfect.

Jackie snuck some photos of us ❤️
We sat on the deck and ate supper, last night. It was just so beautiful!

My potatoes came out perfect. Adam’s chicken was delicious, too. 😊


It started storming, around 11:00, last night. I woke up to loud thunder, a few times. There are some tornado warnings, in counties around us. We’ve been in a tornado watch, since last night. The kids school was canceled today, as a precaution. So, I’ve got my kiddos home with me. I’ve got windows open, but it’s kind of stuffy in here, with the humidity. Our front grass has really greened up! I’ve seen lots of buds on trees, and flowers blooming. My mother in law told me there was 4-8 INCHES of snow forecasted, where she lives. Yuck.

I think the kids and I are going to play a board game. I try to entertain them, without electronics, for part of the day, at least. Since we can’t go outside, I’m coming up with fun inside ideas. I have journals for them. We usually do them during summer, when they’re out of school. I give them a new journal prompt, everyday, and they write and draw about it. I might get those out, too. I wasn’t planning on them being home for lunch, either, so I need to figure out what to make for them.

I suppose I’ll turn on some music, and get started with my day. I haven’t done much of anything, yet. Drank like 3 cups of coffee, made cinnamon rolls for breakfast, unloaded and loaded the dishwasher. That’s about it. Let’s hope the weather doesn’t wind up turning on us, and cutting power off or something. As long as that doesn’t happen, I’m good with a day off, hanging out with my babies.

  1. Thanks so much for the potatoes picture. Totally got a good idea of how to do them now. You are an amazing mama and I love how you are playing ball sports with your daughter. I was reading somewhere that there is a relatively short time for girls to get confident with catching, throwing and bouncing a ball before they get too embarrassed to try. Who knows if it’s true!!! But it’s healthy and something she will be able to teach her children one day. The evening looked beautiful. Please stay safe and hope the power stays on. Sheesh it’s probably time to start investing in generator businesses 😂

    1. You know what, Adam’s work actually has several commercial generators. He could bring one home, if we needed. When we had tornadoes that knocked out power for a week, he brought one home. It saved all the things inside our fridge and deep freezer!


  2. As a parent of two grown kids I can testify to how very quickly they grow up and move away. You’re doing well to enjoy every minute with them that you possibly can. Make many good,and some great , memories.
    You are so blessed with great kids and an amazing husband. Conversely they are sooo blessed to have you. Sounds like a happy and blessed family. Your kids will greatly appreciate you and Adam when they are grown with kids of their own (you will be an amazing set of grandparents!)This blog promises to be even more heartwarming than it is now!
    Thanx bunches for sharing this post with your readers

  3. Eve, please be safe with those warning, sounds like you have the day well planned. In Az this is the coldest winter I can remember. Letting kids enjoy the outdoors instead of burying their heads in electronic devices, is a great way to grow up and make friends. it was ok when we were growing up.
    Enjoy the day with your kiddies. Sir 🙂
