09:17 am - Ten Things
I had been looking forward to this week so much.... and then the universe saith "Ha ha ha," and the universe brought down its smite-y hand on me (lightly) and many of my friends (much, much harder).

So, time for a Ten Good Things list:

*watching the first (Netflixed) episode of Nero Wolfe. Timothy Hutton as Archie Goodwin, hello sailor!
*a wonderful yoga practice last night, exhausting and centering in all the right ways
*return of the warmth after three days of cold; this afternoon, open windows, and wind blowing through freshly washed curtains
*despite my unhappy, newly confirmed certainty that I cannot write, managing 500 words anyway
*pink-and-fuchsia-azalea lawn, petals everywhere on the ground, petals still nestling in green
*starting Peter Ackroyd's Thames: the Biography
*three hawks soaring over my back garden
*friends coming over for pizza and wine tonight
*the Dog of the House's cheerful rumbling talk
*breathing

May your list of Good Things today be much longer than ten!

Delicious, isn't he? (I told you so)

Yay for Good Things!

You did tell me, yes you did. :-) (Am still more enamoured of his dad, but... mmmm, Archie Goodwin!)

Cheers and good thoughts for YOUR good things today!

Oh, golly! I had such a crush on Tim Hutton way back when ... the 70s were just good for me. Sad, really.

Yay for azaleas, and yoga, and pizza and wine! thanks for the list, and sorry for the smite-y hand of the universe. It sucks.

::hugs::

p.s. thanks for email update

It is a sad and yet utterly predictable truth that although TIM Hutton would have been the age-appropriate crush for me back in the day, I crushed on JIM Hutton. Because, Ellery Queen! (And to my eternal shame, Hellfighters).

Hugs and yay for you, H_P!

Re Timothy Hutton as Archie Goodwin: In the words of a sage music-trio from Texas, "Every girl crazy 'bout a sharp-dressed man." I mean, REALLY.

I had no idea of the awesomeness, Rainkatt!

Also, hugs and color and joy sent your way. :-)

My mom loves the A&E Wolfe. She bought the box set.

Happy Spring!

Yay happy lists! :-)

I spent the entire day (and all of last Tuesday) trying to save the stock and staff of one of the branch libraries from the wrath and stupidity of Stupid Top Manager. Am exhausted. *send hugs and more hugs, though, and pats for the short one!*

I never watched much of the Nero Wolfe episodes, but oh, the books. :-)

Warm, with azaleas here as well.
