Hmm... day Four of at least seven. I'm having enough fun with this that I may well continue after the first week. We'll see. There were a lot of good things today that I was really happy about. I will not do it in list format all the time, but this was a good reminder to just write about what makes me happy every day.

  • Sunshine after one day of rain. I know, I know, I'm spoiled by the 300 days of sunshine here, but I do like it a lot.
  • Byakuya's fight near the end of the Zanpakutou Arc. It's a beauty and reminds me how I should be writing fights. His lecture about actually talking to and working with other human beings made me sit up and take notice.
  • Mint ice cream with chocolate cookie by Ben and Jerry.
  • Another episode of Ookiku Furikabutte! Or the Big Windup!
  • Doing the 1 mile Walk with Leslie Sansone because I had a hard time sleeping and breathing last night and even with this lingering cold moving around a bit helped things.
  • Tenpou's conversation with Byakuya after... The conversation is really bringing home the fact that I really write to find out what the #@$*&! happens next because... damn... I wouldn't have thought it would be this.
  • America's Test Kitchen's recipe for chicken teriyaki, even when I just cook the chicken with that method and put raspberry chipotle sauce on instead. Yum.
  • Japanese roasted green tea.
  • I'm on the fourth round of the LAST needle size on the shipwreck shawl. It's good to watch videos and finish this monster.
  • Someone asking me to provide a .pdf or ebook version of Twin Souls to make it easier to read. I hadn't thought it would be so easy to do. With all the chapters, a table of contents, and all the fantastic fanart folks have given me for that story! PICTURES!
  • ebooks. I'm starting to read Around the World in 80 Days and The Complete Adventures of Sherlock Holmes because they're ebooks and they're free and *pretty*. I may have to get some kind of pocket device eventually, but with as much as I read on my computer, it's already pretty darn cool.
  • Leftover curry for lunch. It's just so easy.
  • Jet's giggles as we read The Wee Free Men together. I so love Pratchett and it's amazing to be able to share it with Jet with Tiffany when she's just nine, too.

  • The Grief is Real

    Lately, I've been feeling like I've been run over by a truck, but got away with it. Bruised, battered, aching all over, but I'm alive, and I'm whole…
