Monumental Sunset

Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. I baked mint sticks to take to my bookclub and the librarian who runs it gushed over them. I left the tin for her to share with her colleagues, and Rudi and I nibbled on the edges I trimmed off for dessert.

2. A dapper fellow wearing a violet bowler hat and a matching pocket square was on the train one evening. In his lap — a tiny, metallic giraffe backpack.

3. Leaving the best for last — Rudi is home after ten days away. It’s been nice to have him here to talk with more than once a day and to help me deal with household things and to climb into bed next to him at the end of the day. Plus, it’s way easier to hold hands when you’re in the same zip code.

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

I love the one you left for last!

We have some gentle spring rain falling today – it is truly a thing of beauty!

Oh mint stacks. Must look them up. WE live near the Andies Candies factory….though.
Beautiful to me right now: the suns still out and its 5:30. I get to knit all night tonight. Also beautiful: a cupcake I bought at our bakery and intend to snack on tonight
