the feeling of satisfaction:
having finished some items for the shop just in time for Valentine's....
overnight snow that renders the washing line a frozen artery across the yard:
bringing with it the anticipation of some good exercise...
at this moment wearing the birthday necklace that Safiya made for me, in whispers last night in the living room with Mr. S. while I worked in the basement:
calls from my dear friend Tim and my grandparents, singing me their versions of "Happy Birthday" (one in French, the other in two-part harmony).....
bodes well for a birthday day, don't you think? :-)
