small joys
The other day I celebrated the fact that the last batch of eggs I hard-boiled came out perfectly. Even days later the eggs peeled easily, and were a wonderful consistency.


What small joys have you celebrated lately?

That's always so awesome -- I've only managed it a few times. :)

My smallest joy lately has been turning on the radio and immediately hearing Groove is in the Heart. I used to love that song.

Neat! Yesterday I got in the car and turned on the radio and it was "Tom Sawyer" by Rush, one of my childhood faves.

I managed to convert leftover chocolate fondue into fudge. It firmed up perfectly.

Last night, I got to visit with my Grandpa all on my own without a dozen other people around. And, he was able to have the chocolate shake that I brought to him and it made him smile.

Nice!

The last few times I used the library I held onto the books too long and then lost them and had to pay fines... I have three books from the library at home right now, tentatively hoping to get them read and back on time.

A walk, and a shared bottle of Champagne, while serenaded by birdsong in the woods near home last night.

And again tonight, weather and work permitting!

I'm making good progress on all of my knitting projects, and this brings me small bursts of joy on a regular basis.

I went for a walk this morning, and though I live near a service drive, it smelled *delicious* out. You could smell the dew on green things, and the sun on lilacs and apple blossoms. The breeze was soft and moist, rather than the dry, harsh winds of winter.

That the world is turning green, and the sugar-snap peas my sweetie planted have sprouted.

Ive been eating a lot of gas station food lately, and most of it is pretty bad, but a few days ago I got there at just the right time to have a perfectly roasted chkito(sp?)

(You know- a tortilla with cheese and beans and chives?)

This morning I was trying to rebandage the infected badness and panicked because I couldn't twist into a position to be able to do anything with it. I called J and he came right over, took patient and gentle care of it, kissed me and sent me off to work. <3

Okay, that might be a larger joy. :) How about the exact angle of the tree branch outside my window and how the window frames it perfectly like a painting?

Oh, that does sound nice. The tree in my front yard has lovely white flowers all over it. Every year I am glad I wouldn't let Bill cut it down after a third of it broke off in a storm.

Letting my cat lay on me while I read. I was neglecting the enjoyment that a pet can bring, and I've been enjoying all of the animals in this house a lot more. :)

How do you get a perfect hard boiled egg? The bachelor in me needs to know. :)

My small joy was making it all the way to California without mechanical trouble of any kind.

in this case I put the eggs in cold water in a pan with about an inch of water above them. Then I brought them to a boil, uncovered, and turned them down to a low boil for fifteen minutes, then rinsed them immediately in cold water then left them in cold water (accidentally for about 2 hours).

Being closer to work and taking the bus a few days of week to stave off gas price annoyance (not that I ever lived *too* far away, but now taking the bus is actually practical on a daily basis).
