10:30 am - April 5, 5 Good Things
Am feeling most besieged and fraught (for no good reason, I must add), and so, today's counter-programming is Five Good Things.

*It is raining. Storms have passed (mostly), and now we're getting the lovely grey morning and some of the nourishment this parched subtropic town needs.

*I have proclaimed it Ines de la Fressange Day (er, in my head), and am wearing a navy blue sweater and white jeans to pay tribute. Because the Blonde One and I had to splash through puddles, I've rolled up the jeans in manner insouciant and far too young, but now I'll unroll them like a grown woman. ;-)

*Yesterday I thought of Lisa Stansfield singing Cole Porter's "Down in the Depths." The video is stripped-down elegance befitting the song and the singer... And the opening statement reminds us to think about the occasion of the video, one of the "Red Hot and Blue" compilations for AIDS awareness.

"Down in the Depths on the 90th floor...."

*I still have last night's Castle to watch. (Hurrah for Hulu and living in the future.)

*And I'm now going to spend 15 minutes cleaning my office. Starting now in the midst of disarray...

May you have 5 Good Things of your own today!

I like your list. I will try to find five good things of my own today, the first of which is that Everybody is going to work/school today, so I'll have some time to myself for the first time in a while.

oh, I'm glad you have our rain while we have your sun (thank you for sharing!)

And hooray for having last night's "Castle" awaiting your leisure (and mine too)

Off to click the Stanfield link now.

hugs and fingers crossed for fraught-reduction!

It is always better to share. :-)

Hugs and good cheer, ALH, with knitting and yoga and maybe some bubbly. ;-)

I deeply regret miscalling your sweater. It is, in retrospect, clearly a blue sweater. Other than that, I thought our unplanned Bobbsey twins look was a treat for anyone watching us today. :)

Indeed, sartorial harmony is a Good Thing too. Let's call it #6 on the List!

Hugs and good cheer for tomorrow!

I managed to escape the just reward of such foolishness -- no splashes. :-)

Happy Wednesday, L, and hugs!

I have a (currently) super-secret project (although I may have dropped himts about) that counts for at least five good things right now.
