Letter, Pass, and Warm

I’ve been a bit remiss in writing up my weekly three beautiful things of late.  As a result, I’m both a day late this week and have one item below that is actually from earlier in January. It has continued to bring a smile to my face, though, so I think it still counts.

1. I got a letter in the mail from my grandmother’s sister Joan. I had sent her Christmas greetings, and she replied with several handwritten pages filling me in on what she and her kids/grandchildren were up to.

2. The man I tutor at the Washington Literacy Council passed a big test and moved on to the next book in the program.

3. When we left the hockey game yesterday afternoon, we were surprised to find a really nice day. It was about 60 degrees and sunny — a nice (though sadly temporary) respite from the cold weather we’ve been having.

    Sounds good — remind me to discuss #1 with you sometime — nothing urgent.

    My TBTs (actually 4 TBTs now that I count) were all on Sunday — a rare “ME” day — which I am beginning to like realizing that weekend chores can be put off.

    #1 Was similar to your #3, temp was near 50 so Toby and I took two long walks expanding our lungs — it felt like spring — and I guess the resultant shin splints are worth it!

    #2 Then I spent a couple of hours with three friends at Thirsty’s having a couple of pre-game beers & some wings. FUN! Had not been in there is decades (just as I remembered it)….

    #3 Then I went to see Grand Torino — good flick — love Clint Eastwood.

    #4 Back home and watched the entire game — YES, that’s true — the whole thing. It was so exciting. Alas, “my team” did not prevail but nevertheless it was lively 🙂

    My team did not prevail, either. My TBT:

    (1) While at a Super Bowl party, a friend’s cell phone inadvertantly dialed our home phone and the machine picked up. He must have hit the “redial” button and never realized it. We have 2 minutes of him singing in his car at the top of his lungs, with absolutely no idea that he was being recorded.
    (2) Boys showing up at my therapy class to cheer me on as I tried to keep up with the kids in my class. Everytime it was my turn for a conditioning thing, youngest would yell “go Mommy!”
    (3) The look on middle child’s face when he climbed into a kayak that started to roll on him. It’s nice to see a little fear when it is appropriate!
