usedtobeljs: (Dame Judi Dench)
This Saturday I am clinging to moments of joy:

*the CDs I liberated from my father's store, 50s cool jazz and 60s pop jazz and the odd bit of Afro-Cuban jazz awesomeness

*new makeup (eyeliner, eyebrow filler, highlighter, blush) with an option to buy new lippie later

*wearing my Ariat cowboy boots (3 years old now?) with a pencil skirt so I could run from meeting to meeting at work yesterday

*Bertie Carvel writing brilliantly for the New Statesman. (He talks about playing Simon Foster, who is loathsome, but mmmm, Bertie.)

*Britbox has "A Bit of Fry and Laurie"! And Campion!!!!!!

*homemade bread made by a colleague

*2 and a half inches of rain yesterday, and an almost cool morning today for Master Danger's and my walk

May your days ahead be full of joy.
usedtobeljs: (Anya we persevere thoughtful)
This has been a week of heat, rejections, and stumbles, but hey ho, we carry on.

What are good things to celebrate?

*gardenias! Four gardenia blooms on my plant!

*a great bottle of Benziger Frank Johnson Vineyard Sauv Blanc, opened with Freixenet to celebrate her birthday

*last night's ep of Doctor Who, which was just stone-cold delightful. Also, Peter Capaldi in high collar, cravat, and Regency brocade -- in the words of Bill, "GET IN!"

*payday

*Independent Bookstore Day yesterday, and getting two books for my dad at the local shop.

*blocking out time for a nap today

May you, even in sad or hard times, find glimpses of joy this week.
