Lovely Things

I have been pondering whether I have anything to say on the subject of one year over and another one beginning. In procrastination of that, I present this list of lovely things:

A study book with wide empty margins for writing in.

Rain drop ripples in a puddle.

A heap of comfy, cozy blankets and very soft sheets.

These words: insular and provincial

Really funny conversations with friends.

Cookies from my Aunt Kathy.


Tasty soup on a wintry sniffily sneezy day.

A new set of playing cards.

A book with a satisfying conclusion.
