this week was good because of...
...one last day of beautiful autumn weather, with sun glowing in the leaves.
...book group discussions that stretch my brain and my perspective.
...keeping a heart of welcome and amusement for a day of crazy-early snow.
...the satisfaction of a good metaphor in my conversation with a student.
...BBQ sausage quesadillas. Tastier than I expected (and much tastier than the enchilada sauce I was supposed to use!).
...the much-appreciated boost (to my ego and my confidence) that comes from receiving my first offer of a phone interview.
...a delightful taiko drumming concert.
...reorganizing my closet for the colder season.
...reorganizing my kitchen cabinets to accommodate wedding gifts and clean out those no-longer-needed items.
...making Oreo truffles for friends' and colleagues' birthdays.
...the comfort and inspiration I draw from my love's support and encouragement.
...(finally!!!) getting started on the December Daily 2012 mini album. Because maybe - just maybe - I can get it done before December Daily 2013 begins.
...this simple, yet revolutionary statement about preserving identity in a relationship: "There are three characters that make up a relationship: you, your partner, and the relationship."Yes!
...a lunchtime combination of foods that leaves me satisfied. Like, all afternoon. Oh, and I think it's pretty healthy, too?
...the heart-wrenching, heart-warming story of a woman's journey through tragedy.
What made your week good?
