Driving home in the daylight. Being stuck in traffic in front of my favorite field is no hardship.
Kinder Than Solitude by Yiyan Li. My favorite quote so far… “Why anyone does anything is beyond my understanding or interest. All I would like to know is who was trying to kill who, but unfortunately you don’t have an answer. And sadly, you don’t seem to share my curiosity.” What a mom.
A husband who is now home for dinner every night.
Parking in the garage.
Listening to Beau sing “Beat It.” And “Titanium.” And “Young and Beautiful.”
Getting a free drink coupon at QT because I waited for their tea to finish brewing.
Waking up to chirping birds. Now if I could only stop hitting snooze for a half hour.
Warm afternoon winds.
Being finished with Beau’s ocean life shoebox diorama. Because really, how many first graders can do a diorama and food web on their own?
That the weekend is coming into sight.
