Five things that made me happy today:

1. Early-ish morning at the Farmers’ Market in Richardson. They don’t start quite early enough for me, so I got there while some folks were still setting up. Which is a nice time. Fresh blueberries and some Texas corn. Yum.

2. A quick run to Rooster Hardware. They are my second favorite hardware store, but the “real” Elliott’s is too far away now. (Elliott’s didn’t move. I did.) Black & Decker hedge trimmer to make my five-branches-off-the-privet promise become real.

3. A quick SBUX stop for iced chai — morning dessert.

4. How…


5 things that made me happy today:

1. I got my new crown installed. It’s made out of zirconium. Isn’t that impressive? Then some other little things in my mouth, equal in value to about what I paid for my first car. Should be good now for the last 25.

2. I brought home the model for my crown. It will go on the shelf with the model for my implants, for a crown I had made in San Francisco, for Eric’s “before” his braces, for something Kim had done. It’s a little odd but I like looking at all…


FIVE THINGS THAT MADE ME HAPPY TODAY:

1. Day One of the On-Line Landmark Forum for Graduates: Free To Be, Free to Act. Just down right yummy.

2. Joined by Max, as he is a graduate. Extremely hard to tell what he’s getting, but I had the same assessment when I was teaching his grade!

3. We did have a very funny conversation about conversations that always go the same way no matter what. One with him and his dad about the front yard. One with me about his room.

4. Starting to pull together ideas for my talk for Red River UU in November. Everything is a collage, really, in my brain.

5. Looking forward to mindless entertainment tonight via Netflix.

I love to hear what made you happy today!

Keep going.

Five things that made me happy today:

1. A few episodes of Hoarders over the last few days (while I put the heating pad on my banged up knee, don’t you know?) inspired some random clean up today — straight to the trash. Because I’m not going to fix it or sell it. Really truly.

2. Doing my part to stamp out privet — drastically trimming back the 8' tall privet outside a window in my house. Hoping to get it small enough, with the tools I have, to demolish it come fall. A few branches a day.

3. I…


FIVE THINGS THAT MADE ME HAPPY TODAY:

1. Just re-watched a sweet movie The Guernsey Island Literary and Potato Peel Society. It’s a nice watch for these times. Netflix. (Some favorite British actors who also appeared in Downton Abbey.)

2. My two cats, one on the kitchen counter, one on the kitchen table where I’m sitting, just did a yoga/stretch thing in synchronicity. Cats!

3. My favorite handyman (well, next to my son) came this morning and quickly did half a dozen things around my house. When I’m rich I’m going to see to it that every family has a…

5 things that made me happy today:

1. Killer sunrise. (See pix elsewhere.) It lasted for about 20 minutes. I was basically driving north on a freeway the entire time. I avoided hitting any other cars. It was superb!

2. Lemons in my morning drink.

3. Enormous plate of fresh, raw veggies for supper. Only salt and pepper. Just yum.

4. Finished repairs on the button bracelet. I had forgotten how much fun handling all those buttons is.

5. My nectarines got too ripe — so, out for the squirrels. They love ‘em.

How about you? What made you happy today? I love to read what you have to share.

Keep going.

FIVE THINGS THAT MADE ME HAPPY TODAY:

1. Our Wisdom Elder study pod zoomed today. Always challenging and thoughtful conversations.

2. Long, funny, heartfelt conversation with a long-time friend. One benefit of lockdown = unlimited phone calls.

3. Bunny report — I think there’s a new one. Probably a male. He’s bigger than the others and comes alone. Two babies were also out today.

4. Handyman coming tomorrow. Now I need to prioritize my task list.

5. Booked my speaking engagement for Red River Unitarian Universalist Church for November. I love giving their sermon. This will be the first time it’ll be on video. Subject: This Made Me Happy Today.

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

Keep going.

1. I discovered how to dial back to a specific date on facebook to save my 5 things posts for the last few months. I have just been thinking I’d like to have access to them one day. Now I do/will. YAAAAAY.

2.It was really cool to glance over a dozen or so 5 things from January and be immediately present to the flavor of that day. It’s a practice I’m glad I started.

3. Kent Ellingson played jazz piano at church this morning. Wow! Just wow!
