walk-in, macarons, and rainbow
posted by soe 2:51 am

I’m tired and still need to wash the dishes before I can go to sleep, so let’s make this a quick post, shall we?

Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. The park near our house shows a movie every month during the summer. Tonight was lovely, with starry skies, dry ground, low humidity, and pleasant temperatures. As a bonus, I actually liked the film version of We Bought a Zoo better than the book, despite the drastic changes they made to the story.

2. My post-dentist treat is often macarons. This week, the featured flavor, strawberry-basil, is unexpected and blows me away.

3. Reading Rainbow Rowell’s new novel, Landline, the week it came out. She is hilarious in person and on Twitter (her Tweets regularly get read aloud to Rudi), and it came through in this book about a comedy writer in crisis.

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

Landline was SO great. She’s definitely now on my list of preorder-in-hardcover authors now.

What’s beautiful in my week – my coworker is back after 3 weeks n Australia so I no longer have to supervise the temp! YAY!! And next week is vacation – YAY!!!!!!!!!

And we saw a humming bird on the lavender plant on the patio!!

I am going to begin a ‘post-dentist treat’ tradition starting my next visit. Brilliant!

@raidergirl3: It totally takes some of the pain out of the process.

@Jenn: Yay to all of those!
