–Rubbing Burt’s Bees Foot Salve on all of my sore places tonite and enjoying the rich scent of coconut & hint of mint. Knowing that it will feel much better in the morning.
–Watching “Friendly Persuasion” with some new and old friends after enjoying a tasty home-cooked meal.
–One of the mother’s of CatGirl’s classmates calling yesterday to tell me that her daughter wants to be CG’s friend because she is such a sweet girl. Followed by an invitation to a movie and dinner. And CG’s second social engagement of the weekend tonite: her very first slumber party. Dropping her off amid peals of laughter and reliving a few of my own ‘pajama party’ memories. Reveling in my daughter’s goodness and growth. Beaming with pride.
–Ellycat curled up in the basket of warm clean laundry next to me. Doing what cats do best.
–Driving home from Brea in the rain tonite. Praying for those in the two accidents we saw along the road. Feeling a rush of fear as we ended up in the middle of a high-speed car chase (bright helicopter lights shining above, policecar lights flashing all around). A quick exit off of the freeway and a deep sigh of relief. Then continuing home more slowly, quietly. Grateful.
–Knowing that my teeth are brushed & flossed, the bedcovers are turned down, and as soon as I finish this sentence, I will be curling up in bed with my John.
