Today's not-so-favorite moments included . . .
. . . getting up this morning. I stayed up an hour too late last night, then lay in bed another hour thinking about stuff, then I fell asleep and dreamt I was attacked by a cougar. Needless to say, I didn't feel very rested when Daniel came in this morning requesting some breakfast.
Today's favorite moments included . . .
. . . taking the kids for a walk. Fresh air and exercise are good for the soul.
. . . snuggling Anna on my lap as I read a book to her (over and over and over).
. . . reading Mr. Popper's Penguins to Joy.
. . . making yogurt. There is something strangely satisfying about that simple, predictable process whereby I simultaneously produce something nourishing and save a bunch of grocery money.
