Making me happy these days:

Just finished an amazing Ann Patchett book, State of Wonder. I think it’s one of her earlier works. Took me several hours to calm down and re-settle into my current life. A very good read.

The new/old cat has discovered cough drops, the kind that are individually wrapped. She can carry them around and bat them all over the place. I used to have a cat that liked them too. I can’t remember what happened when they got through the paper to the lozenge. We’ll see.

This afternoon a friend and I saw Origins. A spectacular movie and a superb follow up to reading Isabel Wilkerson’s Caste with my book club this month. Highly recommend. Just hurry. It’s got a very short run.

On the way out of the theater we were hailed from behind by friends who I haven’t seen in about twenty years. How’s that for Making Me Happy Today?

It is fun to go to the movies on a weekday afternoon when there are fewer than a dozen people in the theater.

Oh, and Ruby passed her road test for her driver’s license this morning. Yay!! One more step for documents, vision test, and a photo on March 1 and she’s officially a driver.

And you? I’d love to hear what made your day. Or your week.

Keep going.
