I promised a more upbeat post for this time, so I thought that some simple joys from today's thoughts would be a good way to start the week.
Napping on the deck on a summery autumn afternoon with the sounds of squirrels rustling in the fallen leaves as white noise.
Going to lunch as a family at our favorite luncheonette we haven't visited for a long time and finding that the chicken sandwiches, chili dogs, and fries are just as good as we remembered.
My husband and older daughter researching geneology together, and excited by newly discovered ancestors.
Watching the princess sleep.
Spaghetti for dinner.
Starting a new book.
The picture of a neighborhood cat sitting on the roof of Anna's car that Bruce took with my camera while I was at work.
Donating gently used clothes.
A hot mug of tea to start the day.
A bowl of cornflakes to end the day.
