Things that made me happy today:
Feeding my kids pizza for breakfast without guilt—
or pitching the uneaten half of their cereal, toast, eggs, or other traditional breakfast foods.
This also took care of my MIL’s complaints about the leftover pizza taking up too much space in the fridge
and the way my children don’t eat enough in the morning—
though it did not stop her from expression her silent, pointed, painful-looking opinions about pizza not being Real Food.
I can’t say that didn’t have an elevating effect on the “without guilt” part of the experience.
(and also maybe, secretly, the happy)
Singing along to the radio on my way to work, stopping at a light, and realizing that the guy in the car next to me is belting out the exact same song.
He was doing Kimbra’s part, while I was covering Gotye.
He noticed,too, gave me a thumbs up, and we both sang louder, with feeling.
(long light + a cement truck trying to back up over railroad tracks= looong light)
But the best part?
When the light changed, he grinned at me and hollered, “Let’s take this show on the road!” and took off.
He made my entire day.
I gave a very young patron a pencil and some scrap paper this afternoon,
while her grandmother was having something notarized,
and later received a hug and a picture that Jackson Pollack would have been proud to call his own.
She said I was a “very nice Library Lady.”
Mike Allegra’s Doodle Contest! For which I get an extra entry because I mentioned it on my blog!
If I win, I want a duck in a fedora!
Because that would make me even happier.
