Five things that made me happy today:

1. My newer Christmas cactus is winding up for the bloom. Almost every single stem? branch? has a tiny bud on the end of it and half a dozen are already in full bloom.

2. In the house today except for a trip to the clinic (and a wait in the parking lot) to get Ruby and me Covid-tested. We are both positive. It’ll be an early-to-bed night.

3. My case is extremely mild. Ruby’s only slightly more serious. Hoping for the best, healthiest , quickest outcome.

4. Steamed left-over quinoa for supper. Who says you need a microwave?

5. There is a giant giant full moon tonight. And the sky in Dallas is super clear. It’s quite a sight.

And you? I’d love to hear what made you happy today.

Keep going.

Five things that made me happy today:

1. Max and I ran some errands together today. He is still on break, so any excuse to get out of the house is welcome.

2. My Christmas things are sorted and put away for another year. In the garage. (Last year the box stayed by the back door for an entire year!)

3. Rice Chex cereal plus blueberries for supper.

4. Sometimes cereal for supper is perfect.

5. I enjoyed my rice chex in a gorgeous white china bowl that a friend gave me.

I’d love to hear about your happy moments.

Keep going.

Five things that made me happy today:

1. Church. On line for a few weeks. But, still, church. With a wonderful reading from Barbara Kingsolver that involved a hummingbird nest.

2. A church leadership meeting. On Zoom now. Reminding me that people step up. An organization is a complicated thing.

3. A sweet movie tonight. The Tender Bar. On Amazon Prime. Some good acting. A good script. Some new faces.

4. Some sunshine late in the day.

5. I watered my tree for the first time. Every other day for 20 minutes. #5Things

Five things that made me happy today:

1. Started a new on-line class and all five of us were wearing blue shirts. I just think that’s funny.

2. Lunch with a friend at a place I like — Bella Green on Preston Road. Good lunch. Great conversation.

3. I finished the puzzle from Daniel Polk. It was fun. And challenging.

4. Made a fast trip to The Toy Maven. Their selection is shifting a bit. I must be buying the less popular items, so they’re not on the shelf any more. I did get an intriguing one.

5. I have enough dry wood for a real fire tonight. I think that might be a nice touch for the evening.

And you? Got a happy report for today?

Keep going.
