With all of the busy-ness of this week, I wanted to record just a few simple pleasures from the past few days…
–walking in the Huntington Gardens in the rain, the vanilla-y smell of heliotrope filling the air
–a spontaneous wine & cheese picnic with friends, after a leisurely soak in the hot tub
–cooking a hearty soup that I used to make way-back-when, sans recipe, letting my memory be my guide
–the loan of a warm soft sweater from a friend, when I’d forgotten my own (it’s actually been sweater-chilly in SoCal this week!)
–hearing Catgirl and GameBoy’s excitement about the SNOW that they’re playing in on their trip to Utah.
–moving through a tasklist of must-do items and checking them off, one-by-one.
–climbing on the rock wall, feeling myself support my entire weight on my own two arms. Knowing my own strength.
