this week was good because of...
...time relaxing with my sweet kitty, Gru.
...serving as a judge for the campus debate tournament.
...the return of pumpkin pie frozen yogurt at Orange Leaf.
...a weekend at home - it may not have been as active as I'd have liked, but it turned out okay.
...a lovely day celebrating the beautiful autumn colors.
...sunshine and mild temperatures for a morning hike up the mountain.
...using leftovers wi$ely (and deliciously).
...candid, compassionate conversations with my student staff about improving the quality and focus of their work.
...having lunch with a friend, her three-week old baby and her staring cat.
...feeling great about catching up on email and other tasks this week.
...trying a new recipe that combines the awesome flavors of pumpkin and chocolate.
...the awesome opportunity to be a guest blogger for an online friend half a world away.
...getting photos and all the "stuff" organized for last year's December Daily album.
...a cup of chai using one of the tea bags from Baker Blonde.
...having a "9 am on Saturday" work obligation cancelled - which meant the opportunity to sleep in.
...a quiet Friday-night, Chick-fil-a takeout dinner with Wildcat Guy - including a delightful brownie (with chocolate chips!).
...hearing his stories and seeing his pictures from a conference he attended.
What made your week good?
