It's a balmy and autumnally beautiful day. I've got dogs and a cat and two of my favorite humans right here with me. I have a hedgehog asleep after a night of hedgehog antics (I believe she plays poker, but she always tidies up, so I can't be sure).
Some of my friends are sending me funny text messages. My friends are smarter than I deserve. Well, wait, no. They're just as smart as I deserve.
I bought the Bagster, which is a dumpster in a bag, so I can offload household debris before My husband’s lifelong friend comes to visit this week, and before I go visit two of my almost-lifelong friends. The Bagster is full, and someone will come and haul it away this week, and then my house will be a little less messy and a little lighter, for fall. Beautiful fall.
My brother Eric is running the Chicago marathon and raised money for Special Olympics in memory of our brother Greg, who also raised money for Special Olympics. I am proud of them both.
My house is full of books and paint supplies.
I know how to get to the arboretum.
My head swims with scenes involving flowers and dancing bears.
Tomorrow I will go back to work, and it is in a place that I love and believe in.
I have a joy wallet, and it's so thick it hardly folds.
The man wants to know "What's in your wallet?"
I say joy, and there will be no stealing.
