Almost March, and 2017 is a good year so far. So here are three things that is making me happy this week.
1. It's Girl Scout cookie time, and that is always a good thing. We have two boxes in the pantry right now (which maybe more like 1.6 in an hour). And even better: two boxes of Thin Mints in the freezer for when the days get hot. There is nothing like a good sleeve of frozen thin mints in the heat of July.
2. Yesterday, we were flipping through the channels to see what's on, and we caught most of an episode of The Great British Bake Off, and we sat and watched it. I love that show so much. It just makes me feel good to watch it, so I was most grateful for the chance to revisit that episode. And then I got an email from PBS announcing that they were offering the show on DVD. It's not available until next Saturday, but I pre-ordered, and the first three seasons will be on their way here just as soon as possible. That makes me very happy.
3. I was thinking about putting a table next to our sofa, but I was worried I wouldn't be able to find one that fit well in the small space. But of course, the way the world is now, I can find exactly the right table, the right size, with a drawer, and it will be delivered right to my front door next week. How great is that? How lucky are we to live at a time when so much is possible through this beautiful internet? I am so grateful for that.
