Recovering Pessimist at Work

Bits of bright in an 18° cloud leak (65ish° for those of you who feel in Fahrenheit… and can this possibly be July??):

Cookies and silly songs for a breakfast picnic

Three-year-olds who choose their own outfits

Guess who dressed herself

21 GB of happy trip photos

Homemade peach ice cream (eaten with sweatshirts on, of course)

Peach ice cream

Quirky music videos

Six-year-olds who live and breathe pink

Little Miss Pink

Sky blue toenail polish (hidden under slipper socks, but still)

Two words: coffee toffee

Not having to water the plants (Dan’s optimistic spin on the day)

At least the plants don't need watering

Spontaneous hugs

Hiding under froggy blankets invisibility cloaks

Hiding from the weather

A sunny forecast… for next week.

  1. oh my goshness.
    homemade peach ice cream?
    [with sweatshirts on. ever better;]

    love spontaneous hugs.
    my sister anna sometimes does 'em just to get to my sometimes-claustrophobic-don't-touch-me just to bug me. hehe.

  2. We had a gorgeous hot day today in the midst of all the coolness and rain: LOVELY! 🙂

  3. Now, see? You’ve got it! All good things here. And I love the words you use to capture it!

  4. Your ice cream sounds amazing. 🙂 This is the first day it’s been warm enough to even think of ice cream! But we have sun in our forecast too and that makes me happy. 🙂

  5. Beka – Your sister sounds great; I’m thinking that’s exactly what Sophie (my 3yo) is going to be to Natalie (my 6yo) one day. Heck, she already does a pretty hilarious job of loving on her sister despite all protests. 🙂

    Liz – I’ve heard Sweden’s summer is here and is worth experiencing!

    Megsie – Good things? Totally. Good mood? Well… that’s what writing posts like this is for. 🙂

    Krista – Thanks! It was my first attempt with a new ice cream maker, and it simply had to be peach ice cream like I ate growing up in Texas.
