  1. I was digging around in one of our clutter piles and rediscovered this dirty, old typewriter. I love old typewriters. I have five of them.
  2. My sweetest kitty Augie spent a couple of days throwing up and not eating, but he is magically all better without an expensive vet visit. 
  3. The insomnia streak I had for over two weeks seems to have broken! Of course, it took coming down with an exhausting cold to get over it, but…
  4. I'm even grateful for the cold that broke my insomnia streak, because sleep is golden.
  5. It turns out that a tablespoon of olive oil every morning makes my body very happy. I've been losing a bit of weight and my guts are happier without any other life changes. Who knew?!
