Dairy Queen Treats in Montvale, N.J.

Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. Rudi and I wrap up our trip north with a stop at Dairy Queen in Montvale, N.J.

2. Rudi replaces the shifters on my bike to ones that are smooth and work without needing to hold them together, my grips to ones that don’t leave imprints in my palms, and adds my DCPL bike bell to my handlebar. I feel loved and tended to.

3. Seeing my parents and Karen after such a long time apart. May we never repeat the experiment.

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

I have a dairy queen story!!!! Yours looks great. I had a great experience with two different Dairy Queens yesterday. I ordered a cake for my sister in Minnesota yesterday ,, for her to pick u p but I accidentally called Michigan. (MI MN) The Michigan folks were awesome and cancelled the order. The Minnesota folks, jeepers they were outstanding too. Putting together a cake in n o time for her.

I’m participating in Journey June – a 30-day storytelling art prompt challenge that takes a new character through the Hero’s Journey. My story is about a toy stuffed cat named Covington who lives in the bedroom of a little girl named Isobel and he is on a quest to rescue a stuffed unicorn (Isobel’s favorite) from the dog who snatched him up and ran off with him after Covington couldn’t resist the urge to push the other toy off the shelf onto the floor. You can follow the story on Instagram under the hashtag #jjcovington

I’ve made some progress in learning how to ride the unicycle. Not quite there yet. I may have progressed to the point where my own backyard is inadequate and now I need somewhere with a larger run next to a wall so I can continue leveling up. I think I spotted a good spot in Balboa park.

A Twitch streamer I was watching got frustrated with the game he was playing and rage-quit his own stream. I reached out to check on him – others did as well, I think – and that outpouring of love and support turned around what was a real low point and became one of his most good-feels streams so far.
