Gratitudes + things that are making me happy

• big big mugs for tea

• eucalyptus trees

• Australian plans

• niece, aged twenty months, calling my name when she doesn't know where I am

• taking pictures of her this and yesterday evening with one of my plastic cameras

• rosary-based prayers; prayer beads in general

• staying up late reading the Hunger Games trilogy on my brother-in-law's Kindle

• my big sister's new house, especially when the afternoon light comes in

• ice cream trucks

• having a journal with lined pages again

• feeling peaceful

• mockingbirds, and how they make my mom happy

New houses = wonderful.

Georgie - It's SO much nicer than their old place. And I mean nice as in actually nice, not nice as in just fancier or more expensive. 7/02/2012 7:17 AM  

- I found a friend of a friend's couch to sleep on during a strange and unplanned trip to a new city.

- I am surrounded by so much love.

- My internship stipend came through on schedule!

- I am blessed beyond belief in so many ways.

- I have not smoked a cigarette and over a week and my body and mind feel healthier than they have in living memory.

Yes, yes and yes! I'm heart-full and smiling. And excited by the mention of Australian plans. When, where, what?

Nicole - As of now, September-December; Perth and Sydney definitely, Melbourne likely; nannying/housewifing at a friend's in Perth and then traveling/visiting folks. (I'd love to see you in Sydney, by the way!) <3
