The Joyful Bits

Several things that have brought me joy in the past few days:

--Watching my daughter, in her pigtails, bounce down the long trampoline at a gymnastics class (her first in a couple of years, something she had been asking to do for months).

--Walking my son to school, holding his hand, listening to his daily dissertation on ants or caterpillars.

--Walking to my office after class when I know that a sandwich is waiting for me, and it's not office hours.

--Relaxing with my husband, watching Buffy, while having some good chocolate with good port.

--eating take-out Thai food while watching Crystal Bowersox sing on American Idol (say what you will about the show, but Bowersox rocks!)

--Getting my toes done for the first time in three months.

Yay for joyful bits -- I was going to say, "especially ________" but then realized I can't pick out any one of those things. They're all special in their own way and shouldn't be compared :)

I've been so tempted to get my toes (and fingers) done. But nail polish has such a terrible effect on my nails (turns them horridly yellow!). Let's see a picture, GEW! Then I can admire your pedicured feet.

CT, I only do my toes. My nails are totally au natural(e?) so that they don't turn yellow. When I was in high school, my nails were always painted (and long), but that's just not me anymore. But my toes? I love a little color on my toes. I *should* do a picture!

My word verification is "trala"! Hee hee hee, I love it when that happens.

All very good moments, I'd say.

I'm with you -- Bowersox is my absolute fav. She should already have an album, imho.

Well that all just sounds lovely! Somehow that inspires me to have a cup of tea and talk with a British accent. I don't know why, but jolly joyful chap!
