Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. Rudi and I were at the ballpark on Tuesday for a glorious evening of baseball. As with most sporting events these days, the Nationals employ staff to do routine schtick with attendees between innings, such as opening a box while wearing baseball gloves or identifying songs. Between the 6th and 7th innings, the host running the trivia game asked a guy for the nickname of our third-baseman, which he answered correctly. The host congratulated him and then asked if he’d be willing to answer a bonus question, at which point the man’s boyfriend got down on one knee and proposed. While I know public proposals are risky and put a lot of pressure on the person being asked, it seemed like this proposal had been well-thought out, especially since it included a custom engagement ring engraved to resemble the stitching of a baseball. Oh, and Teddy said yes.

2. Our library’s Fab Lab maker space held a free jewelry repair class today, and although I couldn’t find what I’d bought to fix the necklace that Rudi had commissioned for me by a friend, the librarian running the session had supplies (including some new spacer beads, since one of the original beads had a piece of the waxed cord stuck in it that I couldn’t get out) that worked well enough to make it wearable once again.

3. The afternoons have been very comfortable this week, which has enabled me to spend a lot of time outdoors.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world lately?
