sooooo happy

My ballet teacher asked me to babysit her 5-month-old little girl while she teaches some rehearsals in the evenings :D :D :D ...needless to say, my year has been made :D

ballet skirt

My phone rings.

 *Finally, a valid reason for not doing homework*
 (not that I haven't stopped doing homework for invalid reasons because I've definitely been doing that all weekend)

My phone screen reads, "call from Mom-mom" :)

I pick up the phone and she says, "I'm at County Ballet and they have some beautiful wrap skirts on sale and I'd love to get one for you."

...Seriously, I'm spoiled rotten...

I received an email about an unexpected package in the mailroom.

I decided I needed a break from studying and that I should go find out about the package.

I had fun walking through the rain (and possibly jumping in a few puddles when no one was looking).

I almost dropped the package when it was handed to me because it was so heavy . . . and I immediately recognized my grandmother's handwriting on the address :)

All I can say is that I am spoiled rotten :)

joys of the morning

whole wheat bagel with pomegranate

wearing a twirly long green skirt and a warm knit sweater

meeting friends to pray in the Grotto at sunrise 

sitting in a study lounge reading about the mysteries of Swift's life with a latte and chocolate and worship music playing softly in the background

...yeah, today's been kind-of wonderful and it's only 8:35 in the morning :)

Thank you Lord for the numerous conversations I've had with several different people this week concerning Your Word. Thank you for opening doors for me to speak Your truth and thank you for giving me the courage to start and continue those conversations.

Captain America and Chocolate Frozen Yogurt make creating flash cards for the origin, insertion and action of 55 of the face and torso muscles slightly more tolerable.
