Good Things OTD

1. Upon arriving home last night, I pulled into my driveway, and noticed a visitor I'd never seen before in my garden; a hummingbird! Seems she was attracted by the Lobelia cardinalis I have, thanks to the potted arrangements from L's wedding. Her body was no bigger than a date, and she hovered and flitted charmingly, and she was all feathered in iridescent green and blue. It made me ridiculously happy.

2. I brought a delicious and healthy lunch today, as well as a couple high-nutrition-to-calorie ratio snacks. That always makes a big difference in how my day goes. If I know I've got some yogurt and fruit to look forward to, I have a better time concentrating on a solid hour of work. Then I get my treat, and it's an hour closer to home!

3. Three day weekend coming up soon, thanks to Labor Day. Those are precious. Since I was at my last job for over 8 years, I had gotten accustomed to having weeks of vacation just lying about the place. I think I've got about 3 days accrued right now. So I'm extremely grateful for three day weekends.

    We have a dear old friend coming in from Richmond to stay the night. I'm baking bread and making soup for her. As we get older, taking opportunities…

    Brain: Hey, you know what would be really terrible? Me: Yes. Yes I do.

  • Releasing the past, embracing the now

    After quite a few attempts, I cannot get my LJ entries to migrate. I don't believe in signs and omens, but it is arguable that I'd be better off…
