A few happinesses for a Monday morning…
This piping hot cup of cawpy I am sipping. (That’s hot cocoa to those of you without a Wonderboy.)
Candles on my kitchen table.
Small folk in footie pajamas.
Shower gel that smells like fresh oranges.
That bunch of My Folklore fat quarters I bought eons ago and recently rediscovered.
Potato-soup-with-ham in the fridge for tonight’s supper.
Goldfinches perching on the spires of that basil plant I let go to seed.
Chubby baby feet sticking out of the dollhouse. (Again.)
John Lennon’s “Starting Over” on iTunes and a dance in the hall with my husband, while kids at the breakfast table put empty cereal boxes on their heads for no particular reason except that they’re there.
’Cause when I see you, darlin’,
It’s like we both are falling
in love again…
