The little things

6 Mar

There are no pictures to share today, just words. There hasn’t been a lot of time for photos lately (or maybe there has, but I’m not sly enough to recognize the moments when they come). What there has been is a lot of six day work weeks. I don’t work in a salt mine, or anything of the sort, but a six day work week is mentally taxing and sometimes, in the few quiet moments, your brain defaults to a shadowy place where you wish it wouldn’t go. I’ve been trying to enjoy peaceful moments as they wander in and out of my day and wanted to list them here as a tiny monument to those little good things in life.

  1. I’m savoring the taste of my coffee right now. I think little fairies came in my house and swapped out my coffee last night, because I have never made coffee that tastes this good. Or perhaps I just really appreciate it this morning. 
  2. I have six windows in my office, and sunlight is streaming through all of them.
  3. I  rediscovered my favorite childhood candy and it is just as good as I remember it.
  4. I found a pretty new planner on clearance and it is amazing! There’s room of three times as many lists as my old one!
  5. There was time at work this weekend–between manic bursts of activity–to attempt embroidery. I started the day with the basic materials and no idea what I was doing and ended the day with a near-complete project that I’m not embarrassed of!

Two big things I’m grateful for are my husband’s new job (he started Monday) and my sister-in-law’s big interview. She’s out of town to interview for three days and, whatever the outcome, I am so proud of her. There are so many changes on the horizon right now that it seems a bit frightening. I don’t respond well to uncertainty–which is one of my greatest flaws, I think–but I’m optimistic for the future.

And so are some of my musings. I hope all of you are well!
