Weighing a day

Didn't:
• have to run from murderers in another dream
• sleep in
• go for swim practice
• spend time in the sun
• pose in down dog, proud warrior, cobra, or mountain
• do my Master Gardener homework (2 chapters)
• shower
• swear at the astonishing garden bounty in my kitchen
• buy the October Martha Stewart Living
• feel easy with the epiphany that most grocery aisles are filled with budget-sucking quasi-foods
• eat quinoa
• get to bed when I'd hoped to
• learn appliqué from Lady Danburry
• feel terribly excited about the rumpled picture of the luchador my 14-year-old friend Gladys spied on at the Hispanic Festival and now wants to marry
• fill and seal even one Mason jar
• find a way to watch NieNie on Oprah (must fix)
• overeat
• succeed breaking into my house

Did:
• drive a friend to work
• survive an episode of bad brains
• give my best advice
• do some pro bono work for another friend
• clean and sort tomatoes all afternoon
• listen to good music and talks while I worked
• hug and hug and hug and kiss Annie
• embarrass myself
• eat dinner with family
• surrender my Costco chicken sausages to the greater good
• pray
• enjoy in person an old friend I haven't talked to in months
• loan my banjo
• talk to myself
• buy fresh spices
• sneeze repeatedly
• hear an obscure hymn, which became a favorite this morning, played on classical radio tonight
• try to talk someone else into taking up the accordion
• make a promise
• appreciate irony
• cry
• laugh

Hi, I'm new to your blog. Just wanted to chime in since Costco chicken sausages are NOT easy to part with.

You got that right, Nat!

I made it in for a few minutes with Lady Danburry--that girl is amazing! I wish I'd remembered about the whole thing.
