iced “Constant Comment” tea.
the way the cat sleeps, draped over the back of my computer chair.
a real Friday date night with my loving husband, my favorite thing.
the smell of honey granola baking, and the smiling, grateful boys waiting for it to finish.
this awful cold virus is almost gone! there is nothing like a little illness to help you appreciate all the days you are healthy, but don’t even notice.
a bowl full of blushing Honeycrisp apples on the dining room table.
The Kings Speech, what an amazing film…
how 50 some degrees feels so much better than 30 some degrees.
the power of authentic friendship.
sitting at the table with my two youngest sons, me-sipping coffee and reading and they- sipping cocoa and writing, with the rain drumming on the kitchen skylight and classical music playing quietly and the candle flickering and oh! how right it feels that we are all home and learning, together.
hot soup for lunch.
and finally, weeks of waiting for it, and my word for 2011 is Perseverance.
