new to me, warm head, and equality

Three beautiful things from the past week:

1. We watched the first two episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer this week. Our friends always told us we’d enjoy the show — and they were right.

2. A felted wool beret is perfect for tucking wet hair into when running late for work on a chilly morning.

3. The D.C. Council passed the marriage equality law on Tuesday 11-2. Mayor Fenty will sign the bill tomorrow. Challenges have already begun, both in the courts and in Congress, but this was a HUGE step forward. I admit to being surprised by tears of joy after the vote.


4. This weekend’s forecast suggests the mid-Atlantic is going to get significant snowfall. D.C. is currently in the swath gearing up for 6-12 inches. I see hours of cookie baking and cd making (and picture taking) in my near future.

What’s been beautiful in your world recently?

I can’t believe you’re getting more snow than us! Not that I mind – better you than me!! 🙂

I’d agree with you about the cookies…but i’m lucky if the chips make it to the baking phase. teehee http://www.flickr.com/photos/dccraftaholic128/3929379767/

Yay for D.C. and equality! Definitely sounds like a celebratory snowball fight is in order!
