In no particular order a few things that have happened as of late that have brought a good old pile of joy to my plate:
1.) While in a busy Berkeley Bowl grocery shopping trip a stranger and I agreed that we are all dancing around one another trying to make our way through the aisles. And then randomly as I tried to cross the aisle and she tried to cross the aisle we both danced by each other at the same time (literally danced). I guess I would classify my moves as contemporary dance. For the record, I am not a good dancer and kind of don’t like dancing in public but this moment was special.
2.) I treated myself to a big bunch of fresh lavender and have it placed next to me while I work. Getting a big whiff of lavender as the great bay area breeze passes through our loft makes me one happy woman.
3.) MaLou rocking her chemo treatments this go round.
4.) We had an old banana and some hot days which then turned into a little rash of fruit flies. I feel really accomplished because last night I made a fruit fly trap and today I see successful results! The little things, right?
5.) Baby child talking up a storm, giving the tightest unsolicited hugs at random, looking up to big cousins, watching a little boy through a tantrum using so many “No! No! No’s!” and then little F learning how to say the word no two seconds later, using the potty, making friends, playing with friends, wanting to read…I could go on and on. I just love this little person.
6.) Enjoying what we have while we have it.
