I originally did this: 1) because I stalk Vivian Swift and want to one day be as interesting as her ("she" is probably grammatically correct, but it sounds ridiculous); 2) I miss my girlfriends and had an idea that we should send each other videos of our everyday moments so it would seem like we were just sharing a cup of coffee or something; 3) What else ya gonna do at 4:18?
Tell me which part of the day makes YOU feel most settled.
It isn't just the perfect "morning time," however, that makes me feel most settled. Sometimes beautiful weather, unexpected produce deliveries, and good conversations keep my restlessness in check, too.
Yesterday was a day I would like to think, "looks like me."
Minit Mart coffee: you were good yesterday.
David Arms & Ed Peretto: David brought me tomatoes to the library, Ed, watermelon, peppers, and the Biography of Malcolm X (we had talked about it the previous day; oh, and if you get the Cumberland County News, notice that Ed is our "Patron of the Week.":)). More importantly, thank you for interesting conversations about books, small town politics, and/or how good "fried stuff" is. I'm always glad to see you all walk in the door.
My mother: She and I decided to go to Lake Cumberland Winery in Monticello yesterday for their "Grand Bottle Opening." I can't imagine a more perfect way to spend a Saturday: music, crafts, a beautiful vineyard and winery, wine tastings, and funny, funny friends, some of whom I've known for years, some who I met only yesterday. There's no one else I would've rather spent the day with. My mom is laid-back, foolish, and completely endearing. And Jim Brady, Gary Haddle, and both of your respective families....thanks for reminding me what neat people I am fortunate to know.
