:: warm and sunny running mornings.
:: beautiful peonies (my very favorite) in a jug.
:: taking Isaac to lunch and him holding my hand while we walk through the store.
:: pausing to really look at him and seeing how tall he's grown, how he's turning from a child to a young man.
:: building a habit of drinking a quart of lemon water first thing.
:: sipping warm "golden milk" (turmeric, cinnamon, soy milk, vanilla, and honey blended) from my favorite mug.
:: leftovers for dinner means more time to read Pope Joan. (second time through, so good.)
:: my own (much needed) massage to look forward to this weekend. This pain in the neck is becoming a real pain in the neck!)
:: the comfort of bed.
:: we all decide that homemade veg sushi is the best.
:: spending a beautiful monring weeding my parents yard. That brought a lot of happiness.
:: so glad to be sending the bee drawing off (a first-time milestone as an artist!).
:: this potted lavender plant on the coffee table giving off such a pleasant fragrance.
:: easing into a more relaxed schedule that comes with this new season.
:: making plans for summer fun with Isaac ... hikes, picnics, bike rides, outings, museums, cooking lessons (with me), art lessons (with Eliza).
:: getting the front porch and back deck all set up for summer.
:: giving and receiving love-note texts from this wonderful daughter-friend.
