Five things that made me happy today:
1. Finally got some nice, ripe lemons for my morning drink. Lately they’ve been looking good but they are hard (and juiceless) as rocks. This morning’s bunch (Thank you, Tom Thumb.) were super juicy from the first cut.
2. Ruby is carefully shopping on line for her “new” room. She is going for a really functional desk top, getting ready for school and for art. Probably more art than school, but both need a flat, clear space to work.
3.Found a pet/house sitter for the days I’m gone later this month. I almost forgot to do it!
4. Max “detailed” the car this afternoon, spiffing up for our road trip. We got the oil and filter changed, drove through the car wash, he cleaned all the glass and dust bustered the interior. I didn’t know he knew how to do all that stuff. It’s amazing what you can learn on YouTube.
5. I stopped by Einstein Bros for an everything bagel for lunch. Made me miss Bagelstein’s where I bought everything bagels and lox for 45 or 50 Sundays every year for many years. Gone but not forgotten.
I’d love to hear what made you happy — today or any day.
