2-day-old brioche buns you forgot about, but then sliced thinnish and toasted en mass in 2 slots and spread with butter and strawberry rhubarb jam.
A glass of water you knock off the counter with your elbow onto a floor that needed cleaning anyway.
Tempered glass water tumblers that don't break just from getting knocked off the counter.
Tissues softened with lotion.
Friends who love you like family.
A good cup of tea on a sore throat.
Mail with really cool stamps on it celebrating artists like Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning (thank you Kathy!)
Of course, days off that you can spend eating mango sorbet? those are pretty awesome.
Long weekend coming up here, to celebrate Queen Victoria in all her fireworks-inspiring splendour, and I will be spending most of it behind the wheel doing a final push to look like I've been driving daily for years and not just a month. But today I am just going to sit and knit or nap and not do anything at all. Maybe that will chase away the last of my cold?
Anything that would do that would be better than good.
Edited to add: the drinking glasses are my favourites - used 'em for years, and they still look like new. Plus, who can put a price on not having to worry about shards of glass all over the floor? (said Mary, shuddering at the memory of the time the candy thermometer fell.)
