Little joys

You know my feelings about Tuesdays—or if you don't, I won't go into details yet again, but I usually don't work on Tuesdays, and they're usually fun, joyful days for me.

These things made my heart glad today:

another cardamom latte. I wish you could taste this drink.

nearing the finish of what feels like a long project (his socks!)

finding an earring I thought I'd lost

cleaning the apartment with the vacuum, and then cleaning the vacuum.

cool, breezy, pre-dinner walks, holding hands with him


meeting our friends sweet new baby boy on his first day! (yesterday)

hand-winding yarn and getting to know a colorway

sleeping with the windows open at night (best sleep)

lavender lotions at bedtime

thinking a lot (and working on a post) about working hard at the things that matter, letting go of those that don't

reading somewhere that Christmas is only 62(!) days away?!

(audio) podcast recommendations from friends

a comfy, grey tank I found at anthro for $15, perfect for all the layering

driving in the car with Nicholas, listening to Perry Como, the Andrews Sisters, Bing Crosby, etc. on my daily mix on spotify

January sweetness

We're going about the daily business of living life, with little fun things sprinkled in, lots of sleeping, work days, coffee shop trips, and the like. And we're preparing for my sister-in-law to come visit us!
