Today's not-so-favorite moments included . . .
. . . stepping outside. The calendar says summer began last Friday, but the weather says it started this week. Farewell to the temperate days and pleasantly chilly nights of mid-June. Hello to the oven-like days of summer. I'm looking forward to autumn.
Today's favorite moments included . . .
. . . the Primary president texting to say that she had set up chairs for tomorrow even though it's my turn to do it. Bless her.
. . . smooching my sweetie.
. . . trying out a local Japanese restaurant with a little dining group I belong to. Since I was the only one in the group who was fairly adept with chopsticks, my companions sometimes asked me what things were and how we were supposed to eat them. I told them I had no clue about any of it, either. Cross-cultural befuddlement aside, I loved the miso soup, the tempura, and just chatting with friends.
. . . Little Baby giving me tiny kicks now and then. They're still just little flutters at this point--sweet reminders that Someone will be joining our family in a few months. It's hard to believe that we're already halfway to delivery time.
