a good wallow, color changes, and fairy land

If it’s Thursday, it’s time for Three Beautiful Things from the past week:

1. Yesterday after I found out I had to work on my Saturday birthday, I let myself indulge in bad behavior. I ate a slice of cheese pizza for lunch and followed it up with hot cocoa and M&M’s. (There isn’t much that chocolate and cheese can’t fix…) I spent several hours with the knitting group. And I came home and wrote yesterday’s list (which I’d started contemplating earlier in the afternoon). And y’know what? I really do feel better about it all today.

2. The sock I’m currently working on is being knit with yarn that changes colors as you go along (i.e., the yarn itself is dyed different colors; it’s not like a mood ring…). The colors remind me of the rainbow sherbet my brother used to order at Friendly’s when we were kids.

3. Yesterday morning I came outside to a world coated in ice. Ice storms are nasty things in general, as they make travel quite tricky and sometimes dangerous. But they also give a shiny glass-coated appearance to everything, as if a fairy has come along and touched all the trees and bushes with her magic wand.

Pizza isn’t bad, it’s healthy! Protein, calcium, lycopene in the tomato sauce…(says she who could live on it, if necessary).

Yeah, good pizza is one of the non-people-related things I miss most about living in CT. I’ve found tolerable pizza down here, but nothing like the dime a dozen great pie shops back home.

I second Debby! 🙂 How can pizza possibly be bad for you? 😉 Not that I’ve had it 3x this week or anything….

Jenn, I would have had it thrice last week, except that my friend and I opted to go elsewhere when the pizza place by the movie theater said it would be an hour’s wait just for a table on Friday!

Great. Now I want pizza.
