Wonderful Things from a Low-Key Weekend Around the House

  1. Charlie's joy playing in the wading pool wearing his "babing suit," making rain with the hose and filling buckets, watering cans and other beach toys with water.
  2. Brown-eyed Susans and day lilies and the ongoing luxury of lots and lots of flowers in the yard.
  3. The cardinal perched on the spigot when I went to turn on the hose.
  4. Getting back into the routine of my workouts and that burst of energy they bring.
  5. Naps.
  6. Planning for our Alaska vacation. Slowly putting together activity kits for the plane ride: Mad Libs, card games like Old Maid and Crazy Eights, math dice, mini doodle pro, etc.
  7. Working on an arrangement of "You Never Give Me Your Money" for piano and clarinet.
  8. Rediscovering John Coltrane.
  9. Pulling out "new" toys for Charlie from Ellis's closet.
  10. Reading (and finishing) The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin.
