kindness, new reader, and whole, not holes

Summer at City Center

In addition to not having to hear the details of a murder, three more beautiful things from my week past:

1. A guy heads into a shop carrying a pile of boxes. He gets the door open himself and swings it wide, and a woman walking past doesn’t even break stride to grab it so it doesn’t slam into him before he’s fully inside.

2. A friend brought his five-year-old daughter to the baseball park with him, telling us that reading had suddenly clicked with her in the past few weeks. She had a backpack full of books, but she also kept turning her attention to the scoreboard to read all the words to be found there, too.

3. The contents of my underwear drawer had reached a shameful state, so when Target recently had a sale, I stocked up. Last week I wore new undies every day.

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

A new reader is absolutely a thing of beauty! We had some much needed rain over night, and this morning I could almost ‘hear’ the plants growing!

I took the kids to the library the other evening. The weather was wonderful. The wild roses were in bloom. We saw a butterfly. All that before we even went inside 🙂 And then the librarian helped Marshall pick out some age-appropriate reading for the summer reading challenge, and he walked out with a big stack of books in his arms and a big smile on his face.

Lilacs are on trees, and lupins are in the ditches – most beautiful time of year here.

You can’t undervalue what a difference new underwear makes!

I actually ordered undies of Amazon a couple weeks ago and THEY FIT. Wonders.

@raidergirl3: Hooray for flowers! It sounds gorgeous up there right now. And new underwear really does give you that extra boost, doesn’t it?

@Kat: She was so enthusiastic! And Rudi said she thought certain words were particularly funny, like “slider”!
