Things that are wonderful (mostly about this weekend, mostly in chronological order):

  • New Moon. Yes…seriously. And as a secondary point, midnight premieres. Yes…seriously.
  • Days off, especially when those days fall on Fridays.
  • Friends. (As in the TV show in this instance, but also as in the relational entity. That bullet to follow.)
  • Magazines.
  • Barnes and Noble.
  • Simply Crepes.
  • Hurd Orchards (and along with that, homemade baked goods and dried flowers).
  • Pictures, and endless shades of colors.
  • Dark chocolate. Dark chocolate. Dark chocolate.
  • Italian (the language, which I really want to learn, just for fun).
  • Unhurried time with friends.
  • Hearing the right song at the right time, especially at church.
  • Wegmans.
  • Two consecutive wins. Go Pack Go.
  • Chocolate Chip Butterscotch Pecan Cookies.
  • Brisk walks in crisp autumn air.
  • Beauty that is so beautiful it hurts a little, in a good way.
  • Literature that elicits a response.
  • New music.
  • Weekends.

A thing that is not so wonderful: the nagging feeling that accompanies Sunday nights, the one that keeps poking you persistently, telling you that weekend freedom is fleeing. Sigh.
