Top Ten Joys This Week

The top ten joys of my week (and not in any particular order):

1. Having Sunday dinner outside, after it has cooled down, with my family gathered around.

2. Getting to talk to my aunt on her birthday which is the same day as my birthday (Bastille Day).

3. Waking up early (6 am) with the sun before anyone else is up and going into my garden (with a cup of hot cocoa) to weed, read, or feed (eat).

4. Seeing "the cat" waiting for me in the driveway as I come home. His meow is music to my ears as he rubs along my legs, waiting with anticipation of receiving a nice scratch along his back.

5. Sitting with the aforementioned cat purring in my lap...so very calming.

6. Waking up to a clean kitchen..and an empty dishwasher.

7. Spending the afternoon with my sisters in the city and going to the Impressionist exhibit at the DeYoung. The guard let us in sans tickets...and since it was at the end of the day, we were able to view the art without the crowds! I.N.C.R.E.D.I.B.L.E.

8. Being reaquainted with my kitchen table (by removing "the stuff")and dressing it with a new polka dot cloth.

9. Finding wonderful treasures at two estate sales.

10. Receiving pure white lilies on my birthday from my main squeeze.

Sounds like a great week! I was thinking of you on your day, I always remember your birthday because it was the same day that I got engaged! Love you lots.
