pool party, pride, and peachy keen

It’s Thursday. Really? I mean, I know the calendar says it’s Thursday… But that isn’t right… is it?

Oh, all right, fine.

But if it’s Thursday, that means it’s time for Three Beautiful Things from the past week:

1. Monday evening after work, I’m tired and grumpy and have decided to pass on a planned trip to the pool. But when I call Rudi to tell him so, he raves about how nice it is. I head down for a quick dip. The water is cool and refreshing — and exactly what I needed.

2. I borrow Bride and Prejudice, the Bollywood adaptation of Jane Austen’s famed novel, from the library. It’s amazing how well an 18th-century author’s work holds up to the addition of saris and song-and-dance numbers. Plus, it’s a lot of fun to identify each character as they appear on screen.

3. Peaches are at the height of their season right now. I eat them in the mid-afternoon. The juice draws lines around my fingers and drips onto my desk.

What’s been beautiful in your world?
