A List of Happy Things

another morning in the big bed

I felt like things were getting a little Debbie Downer around here, so here's a list of good things happening right now. One is a recipe. Three others involve food. I can't help it.

1. Elvie is getting a little bit saucy.

2. Walgreen's near my house has restocked the mint Aero bars.

3. I did the dishes.

4. Chicken enchiladas for dinner tonight.

5. Elvie is sleeping better, so I made a slideshow of photos of her sleeping. Everybody likes sleeping babies, even grumps on airplanes.

6. Zinashi's enthusiasm for ballet continues to outpace her skill acquisition. It is so much more fun to watch than if she were doing everything perfectly. We've got the video to prove that.

7.  Mix together one cup softened butter, one cup brown sugar, and three cups rolled oats. Press into a buttered 9x13 pan and bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and then melt together one bag (12 oz.) chocolate chips and one cup nut butter (hazelnut is my fave); spread over top of oat bars. Chill until firm, cut and eat the whole pan in two days enjoy!

8. Downton Abbey.

9. I made a perfect apple crisp.

10. There is a Target opening in downtown San Francisco. No more trips to the suburbs that eat up half my day! Hooray!

What happy things are happening for you right now?


  1. Mint Aero bars, mmmmm. San Francisco? My very favorite American city! I don't see Boudin's bread on your list?!

    Good news here - I got maybe three hours of sleep alone in my bed for the first time in several weeks. And I'm going to get a mint Cadbury bar on our walk, which looks set to feature actual sunshine today.

  2. I'm having a lovely lazy weekend - drinks with friends after work last night, knitting group at my favourite knitting shop this morning. More friends round for dinner so I made sausage, quinoa and kale from this recipe which is delicious and another friend made cannelloni including the pasta which was delicious - and tomorrow is Sunday!! Another day of work!

  3. Elvie's smile is SO the Gerber baby. ;)

  4. You probably already check it, but is having a sale on tights called Luna Leggings today that made me think of Zinashi! You should definitely look if you haven't already!

  5. Cuteness overload!
    Your daughters are so beautiful!

  6. red wine after boys are tucked in bed, the crunch of fall's leaves underfoot, wild giggles during shower time
