+ Early morning light.
+ By a miracle, I was out the door right on time.
+ Chartreuse socks with Mary Jane shoes.
+ A travel mug of tea.
+ NPR, Red Balloon, and a Paste sampler to listen to.
+ Picked up raw cream from local dairy farmers.
+ Put the cream in my friend Amy's fridge, chit-chatted with her cool husband, Ryan, and received hugs from three of their kiddos: Izzy, Athan, and Ian (Elliot crawled around on the floor).
+ "Girl-time" with Amy at La Madeleine for breakfast: French Roast coffee, scrambled eggs, tomatoes, bacon, and fresh strawberries.
+ Whaddya know, my check card expired! Great. I was supposed to treat Amy to a belated birthday breakfast. We both laughed - a lot - and I realized what a great friend she is because she didn't care. She ended up treating me (I'll make it up to her).
+ After more hugs from the kids, I was off to Katy Budget Books. I felt like a book was speaking to me; I had $4.00 + change in my purse. Yep, it was Plainsong by Kent Haruf. $4.32!
+ Lunch with Johnny.
+ Blueberries & cream for dessert.
+ A small winter film from TOAST.
+ Mountainous desktop wallpaper from TOAST, too.
+ Butter is softening for almond flour pound cake.
+ Johnny is cooking steak tonight, one of his many talents.
+ Then we'll watch a movie ~
+ For now, I'm reading that book.
