fine, pastels, and trivial excursion
posted by soe 2:12 am

This seems like a really good time to look back at three beautiful things from the past week:

1. The soil in the part of the garden that Rudi’s been working on looks like he ran it through a sieve. No fibrous roots or lumps, like I’ve left in my part of the garden.

2. Tulips on my way to work in candy colors.

3. I take a solo spin up to our local indie bookstore for their monthly trivia night and join the team of two strangers from Northern Virginia. We come in fifth (or so), and although I am mildly ashamed that I couldn’t name Herman Melville as the author of Moby Dick (I blanked!), I did correctly identify the cover of The Unbearable Lightness of Being, the author of The Fight Club, Prince’s “When Doves Cry,” the reason for the nickname “The Bean Belt,” and the commonality between a parliament, an exultation, and a murder.

How about you? What beautiful things caught your attention this week?

Oh sprite, I love trivia! Before we had children, my husband and I played in a trivia league. So much fun.

“the commonality between a parliament, an exultation, and a murder.” – collective nouns?

Writing group tonight. I’m torn between reading Susan’s work or writing more of my own. So far, working on mine is winning. I’ve got two more hours before I have to print stuff and leave the house.

If you were a mom and had to hide something you didn’t want your daughter to have, where would you put it?
