Holy crap, y’all.
I usually try to resist the “woe is me, my life sucks, nothing ever goes my way” stuff, but I’m as guilty as anybody else – sometimes that stuff just seeps through. Sometimes I only blog a handful of times in a two-week period. Sometimes I eat plain tortilla chips and 1/2 a pitcher of orange juice for dinner. Sometimes I stare morosely at Roxie’s nose freckles for hours at a time. Sometimes I do all of those things at once and then LOOK OUT WORLD. Señorita Mopey is on the loose!
And sometimes? Sometimes it’s the EXACT OPPOSITE.
Take right now, for instance – I’m really floating on cloud nine.
Good Thing #1: My husband came home from his big adventure! For good!! And I’m never letting him leave ever ever again!
Good Thing #3: New ink is forthcoming! And then – I promise, Mom – I’m done for a long time. Probably. Depends on what you mean by “long”.
Good Thing #4: Raspberry-colored patent leather makes everything better.
Good Thing #6: Jeff requested one of my quickly-becoming-famous chocolate cheesecakes for his birthday, and there’s still a sliver in the fridge at home, waiting for me to NOM tonight.
Good Thing #7: I am SO CLOSE to being done with that Featherweight Cardi! Which is good because I’ve been working on it off-and-on since MARCH. Though the only way to get closer is to actually knit on the darned thing. So tonight I shall knit-knit-knit like the knittingest knitter that ever knitted.
Good Thing #8: My mom is in Minnesota at all my favorite spots. I haz a jealous. And a yarn lust. I hope she brings me some!
Good Thing #9: Wozziebaby is so cute. And sweet. And loving. Her granddad is her favorite.
Good Thing #10: It was great having everybody – Jeff’s parents, his sister, my dad – over on Saturday for JEFF’S BIRTHDAY! He continues to be astoundingly old. MUCH older than me.
And because 10 Good Things just aren’t enough…
Good Thing #11: WILL BE A SURPRISE.*
What’s going well for you today?
*But no, it’s not the one I know you all suspect – NO HOOPLINGS!
