broodings from the burrow

bright, an hour to read, and in absentia

It’s been a discouraging week here in the Burrow, with work frustrations dogging both occupants and necessary housecleaning taking away from our normal evening enjoyments. On these sorts of weeks, it’s particularly important to find those little stand-out moments so that we don’t collapse under the weight of Alexander-type days.

Here are three beautiful moments from the past seven days:

1. Our fridge is overdue for a clean out. Not only do I not have dried-out herbs on my fridge bottom any more, but I also don’t have things blocking the light, so the fridge looks particularly bright and cheerful every time I open the door. (I’ve done it a lot since cleaning it out, to be honest…)

2. After a particularly crabby day at work, I decide to retrieve Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and read a few chapters at the local Starbucks, where they have a patio, before sunset. To be honest, after Harry and Hermione’s Christmas visit to Godric’s Hollow, I feel a lot better about how my day has gone.

3. Grey Kitten’s birthday arrives, and he instructs Rudi that we need to celebrate it cross-coastedly. Rudi returns from his dinner run with two delicious cupcakes from our local ice cream shop. His is vanilla mango and mine is chocolate raspberry.

How about you? What’s beautiful things have you noticed this week?

I quite approve of the idea of celebrating friends’ b-days long distance! Yum!

I hope the work frustrations calm down soon. *hugs*

1. Local strawberries are ripe now. The strawberries that aren’t hardy enough to travel anywhere are the best. Soon time to go u-picking.

2. Last night I sat near the playground by the river and read for an hour while youngest daughter played on the playground and middle child played softball.

I always enjoy your beautiful moments and they inspire me to think that way.
