|06:12 pm - Monday, small bursts of gratitude|
Oh God, Monday.
(However, Monday is Sleepy Hollow day! So YAY.)
This Monday was the last day of a heatwave, and while the clouds were weaving grey skies in a manner suitable for late fall, the temperature was late September. Today's bursts of gratitude, then, for cool in a hot day:
*Master Danger chasing an ice cube across the kitchen floor, his nose pressed to the chill
*a breeze on the morning walk
*old Fluevog flats instead of boots to finish my outfit
*listening to old James Taylor albums whilst the rising wind plays with the palm fronds against my window
*squeezing a lemon slice into my iced water, and breathing deeply the good smell of lemon
May your Mondays be full of things that bring you joy.
You certainly can make a Monday feel better.
We spent ours in transit...cab to the airport, Boston-Logan lounge, Southwest to Nashville to collect more passengers, Southwest to Las Vegas to change planes, Southwest to Sacramento to wait for our 4 entirely too large suitcases full of books (I got the bags, B took the shuttle to the car) then another hour to drive home.
We finally got something resembling actual food about 9pm.
Even the cat is not happier have us home than we are to be here. (I knew there was some joy in there somewhere!)
What an exhausting day! Oh dear. I hope you are feeling MUCH better, and that joy is returning.
