Wild berry spritzer (see photo).

Finding the perfect little something to give someone special.

Surprise thank-you notes at work.

The chance at new beginnings.

Dreaming about future travel.

Driving around to look at Christmas decorations.

Incoming Mail--Dana in North Carolina

Back of the envelope, including this great 1913 quote on feminism from Rebecca West, "I myself have never known what feminism is.  I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat."

Current Little Pleasures

Dutch apple pie and Cornish game hens for Thanksgiving yesterday.

Time off work now (November 19-27) and again next month (December 24-January 2).  Whoot!

Currently watching the Iowa-Nebraska (college football) game with Iowa fan Maya.  At least the rabid Iowa fan, my mom, is watching in New Mexico with my sister, who couldn't care less about the results of the game.

Bracelets and mail from Uganda.

2017 calendars and planners.  I love looking at them.

Binge-watching Pretty Little Liars on Netflix with Maya.  We're only on S4, though.
