Little moments

Taking a moment to remember all the little things that lift my spirit:

1. Charlotte the Cat, who for reasons all her own believes it is her sworn feline duty to sit on the toilet seat and help me apply moisturizer. I think I can do this without being under her watchful gaze, but she disagrees and is always there when I "need" her. It's very sweet.

2. Quick little emails from my best friend. Mostly about Halloween. Nothing earthshattering. But it's important to feel connected, and sometimes it's sharing the stuff of everyday life that bonds us together.

3. Peapod. My week's groceries are going to be delivered between 7:00 and 9:00 this evening. Is this a great country of what?

4. Sir Paul. Right now I'm listening to "She's A Woman." Listening to him has been good for what ails me for 45 years now.

I need to appreciate these tiny day-to-day jabs of pleasure more when I experience them.


  1. Peapod...ah, the one thing that makes me insanely jealous of life in the city. Just isn't here yet in NH!

  2. Some days, in the middle of all the hub-bub, we forget to be thankful for all the small things that go right. (I definitely do.) I like that you gave us a view inside your window of gratitude. :)

    Have a good Friday!

  3. Oh how very sweet of Charlotte! My little Lucy feels the need to supervise my hair drying. Though she is petrified of the noisy machine, as soon as I turn it on she appears from thin air sitting at my feet staring up at it with eyes as big as saucers. She does not feel I am safe until I have held it out to her (while it is running - though not blowing on her) so that she can fearfully yet forcefully slap at it with a few quick paw jabs.


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
