Today's favorite moments included . . .
. . . taking a walk to Joy's future school, and seeing what's blooming in people's gardens on the way.
. . . playing catch with Daniel.
. . . smiling at Joy.
. . . getting lots of stuff done.
. . . Phillip offering me the last jelly bean (then discovering that Daniel had eaten it when Daddy wasn't looking).
And another thing . . .
. . . some of the many reasons I like Trader Joe's:
- friendly, cheerful staff
- friendly, cheerful customers ranging from hippies to yuppies
- fun background music
- no tabloids at the check stands
- store brand staples tend to be inexpensive and good quality
- my picky kids will try virtually anything at the sample counter
