Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. We waited out the evening shower in Trader Joe’s loading dock and headed back out as soon as the rain lightens. The storm moved through quickly and the clouds afterwards skittered across the sky like a rapidly turning kaleidoscope, attaching one to another and then splitting apart in new shapes and colors.

2. I ordered some new, highly discounted clothes a couple weeks ago and Friday the Post Office showed the package as delivered, even though it was nowhere to be found. At first I wasn’t worried — we’re a USPS family and I know sometimes things slide under seats, plus we fall at the end of our carrier’s route — but when it didn’t appear on Saturday and tracking hadn’t been updated, I filed a missing package report. (While we’ve never had packages stolen, we do live in a city and we know people who have.) Monday evening, the package showed up as if it was right on time, which, I suppose, it was.

3. We were out of bread products last week (by which I mean I hadn’t made bread and didn’t feel like running out to the bagel shop), so I opened a boxed chocolate chip pannetone we’ve had sitting around since the holidays. It’s okay toasted, but makes an amazing French toast, which is a very pleasant way to start a workday.

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