“You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocket ship underpants don’t help.”
~ Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes
It was good day: real conversation and focused prayer with a friend in the morning, a hair appointment in the afternoon, and a good measure of quiet solitude in between. Then computer disaster hit and everything went south.
Still not sure what I’m going to do about the computer situation. Well, I’m pretty certain I do, just not quite ready to accept it. It’s not the end of the world, the situation is recoverable but not something I need to be dealing with right now. Life does that sometimes, have you noticed?
Today, I’m having a minor medical procedure and am looking forward to a venti (to make up for no caffeine this morning and the headache that’s already settling in) carmel macchiato later this afternoon.
I’m in great need of simple happy to put me back on track as I prepare for the day ahead. So here we go.
The right song at the right time.
The way the steering wheel on my new car feels in my hands.
Dark and silent mornings.
The comforting hum of the furnace as I wake in the morning.
An Amazon credit that’s almost the exact amount of something I’ve been wanting.
The tidiness of the yard now that the pots and summer gear have been put away.
The slower pace of October days.
