  1. Hummingbird flying around outside my office window and dancing in the climbing roses.
  2. Writing group meeting. Feels like ages since we'd met. Very fun and productive, including some lively debate about The Last Jedi.
  3. Rediscovering my love of manga.

  1. Lunch out with the husband.
  2. Cat received a clean bill of health from the vet at his checkup.

. . . I'm sure other good things happened, but I'm having a rough time of late. I'll say: at least the cat forgave me for taking him to the vet.

  1. Got through my morning obligations with little to no difficulties.
  2. Was able to then hide out at home the rest of the afternoon.
  3. Watched more Cardcaptor Sakura with the kids. I try to point out the little bit of Japanese that I can remember, but I'm not sure they care. They *are* interested in the cultural differences, however, so that's fun to discuss.

  1. Despite a very chilly morning, the day became a beautiful one.
  2. Got a little more writing done.
