1. It’s Friday. Max and Ruby and I have worked really hard these two weeks to juggle everything we needed to do for school. Kudos to the whole team.

2. Last night’s salmon-on-the-floor dinner will go down in the family annals. Too bad we didn’t take pictures!

3. The Rubes is under the weather today but she wanted to finish her Peru project and get it turned in. That’s a relatively new impulse.

4. I lifted a completely intact and newish wooden shipping pallet from a neighbor’s trash pile. Not sure what I’m going to do with it but I’ve always wanted one!

5. Preliminary labs from yesterday’s physical are all in the normal range — always good news at any age!

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

Keep going.
