2. I am often mesmerized by the effect of evening light on the otherwise unattractive freighters that wait just offshore for a spot at the loading docks. Such a different beauty than the more delicate variety I find in my garden, but it uplifts me nonetheless. . .
4. Perhaps you remember my (very First World) complaint, last fall, that the woman who was cleaning for me cleared all the magnets off my fridge, poetry included. No? Well, one of my daughters did, and she brought me these charming new fridge buttons for a refreshing new start. Aren't they sweet?
5. And let's see, let's see, so much competition for Item Number 5. But I think the spot today will go to my favourite yoga class, the Friday Rise 'n' Shine at Omtown Yoga, here in Nanaimo. When we're finished -- and this will be my first sustained activity since I ran the marathon last Sunday -- we'll follow our Ommmmm and our Shantis with a rather unconventional but oh-so-enthusiastic Woot-Woot, two thumbs up, and all. Pater and I will roll up our mats, thank Steph for a great class, and wonder across the street to our favourite Nanaimo cafe-bakery, Mon Petit Choux, where I will enjoy a Croque Madame. . . .almost like being in Paris (where we'll be changing trains in about a month).
Hmm, I might just have cheated on #5, squeezing in a few favourite things after all . . .
And now, let the weekend begin. Are you looking forward to chilling? or have you some projects to start or fnish or work away at, doggedly? Whatever you're up to, you know I'm interested -- do leave a comment if you have a minute. If not, thanks for reading -- I do appreciate your presence here.
