Five good things on Friday

1) This morning I went to yoga and then spent several hours making granola with a friend. Call me a hippie but that is a DAMN fine way to spend a Friday, on all fronts.

2) Monkey had a good day at school, and happily informed me that his team did NOT win the Battle of the Books, but they were runners-up and the team who won really deserved it. Yay for good sportsmanship!

3) Chickadee and a friend were picked up from school and deposited at the State Science Fair by Otto, who then texted me: “Nerdlings delivered and safely locked in the nerd pod.” I am never deleting that off of my phone; you cannot read that and not feel cheerful. Well, I can’t, anyway.

4) The rain stopped. Finally.

5) Hey, guess what! It turns out that after all that angst that if you VERY STERNLY tell Licorice to “go to bed,” she’ll go sleep with Chickadee and not come stand on our heads until our alarms go off in the morning. Hooray!!

    Hippie. ;)

    Too bad we can’t train our children as easily as you can train Licorice.

    Yay for five good things! I can’t pick a favorite (though I do lean towards the nerdlings delivered one)! Here’s to a good start to a (hopefully) good weekend!

    All good things! Must be too much facebook but I kept wanting to “like” each thing. The best part about a good day being at the beginning of a month is it gives you hope for the whole month. Sets a tone, I guess. I hope all of April is as great as today for you.

    You have no idea how happy I am that you’ve had a great day. You absolutely deserve many more days just like this! You know what you need? Fresh frozen yogurt to sprinkle that homemade granola on. :O Just an idea.
