Soaked, Sweetened, and Charmed

Ah, Saturday, time to take a look back at three beautiful things from the past week.

1. On the way home from work Tuesday I got caught in the craziest rainstorm, where the sky way full of black clouds on one side of the street and bright sun on the other. It was so cool looking that I didn’t even mind that I got completely soaked.

2. The Metro car I got into on Thursday morning smelled so strongly of cotton candy that I could imagine I was at a fun fair, rather than on my way to the office.

3. The kittens got a clean bill of health at the veterinarian’s on Friday, and charmed the vet so much that she had someone come in to take pictures of them for their Facebook page. (See? It’s not just me!)

Speaking of which, here is today’s gratuitous kitten cuteness:


(Yes, Harper likes the camera much more than Carlson, who tends to charge at me to see what’s going on whenever I try to take a picture.)

What’s been beautiful in your world this week?

    Oh, an EASY week for my TBTs:
    (1) Spending two beautiful days in the north country of NYS with Brian and good friends — sunning, swimming, visiting, dining, sightseeing, enjoying immensely a campfire and some GREAT Adirondak beer, and a return for me to Saratoga after an absence of many years. A delightful visit!!
    (2) Amazing good fortune in returning home safely after discovering a half-flat tire in the boonies, only to put air in it, and then return home to find a screw in said tire. Somehow replacing it did not sting quite so badly realizing our good luck! Maybe we didn’t cash any tickets at the track, but our luck was of another kind. And,
    (3) Celebrating today with life-long special friends their 50th wedding anniversary! SPECIAL CONGRATS TO BUD & MARYANN 😊

    1, 2, 3. One of our kids has dealt with separation anxiety and change / new situations very poorly. You name it, this child has had an all-out, paralyzing sob over it. Really. For YEARS. So when he asked to play football, we said no, we’re done. He did not relent, and continued to ask to play football for 2 years. We gave in, I mean, signed him up and the season started this week. Not only were there NO TEARS (!), but the kiddo looked over at us, winked, and gave a thumbs up…twice during the first practice! He never stopped grinning.
