Current Little Pleasures

Researching Disneyland for Maya's November trip with her dance studio.

Grace and Frankie.  Currently binge-watching on Netflix with Maya.

Victoria Beckham for Target.  I bought a shirt, jacket, and pair of pants.

Cherry Coke.  I haven't had any in years, and now I'm on  a kick.

Voicemail.  Always.  Because telemarketers and scam artists call more than people I actually know.

Spring tulips, lilacs, and daffodils.

Current Little Pleasures

Lilacs.  We have three lilac bushes blooming at the back of our house, and our yard smells wonderful.

IZZE Sparkling Clementine

Listening to the tones of Maya chattering and laughing with her friends on the phone.

Thirteen Reasons Why.  Netflix did justice to the novel.  [Please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (or by phone at 1-800-273-8255) in the U.S. or a friend or family member if you're having thoughts of harming yourself.]

People who take the time to do a kindness for others with no agenda, no chance of gain, etc.  You make the world a better place, and we need all of the positive we can get.

Jane Austen Quotes

All taken from the set of Jane Austen postcards I purchased to send to my friends.

"Which of all my important nothings shall I tell you first?"  Letter from April 1, 1816. [Fits how I often feel when I sit to write a letter.]

"We all have our best guides within us, if only we would listen."  Mansfield Park

"I do not want people to be very agreeable, as it saves me the trouble of liking them a great deal."  Letter from December 24, 1798.  [LOL]

"Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery."  Mansfield Park

"Pictures of perfection, as you know, make me sick and wicked."  Letter from March 23, 1817.

"Wisdom is better than wit, and in the long run will certainly have the laugh on her side."  Letter from November 18, 1814.

"There are as many forms of love as there are moments in time."  Letter from January 24, 1809.
