Here are a few things I'm enjoying right now:
The other day I got my toes painted a true purple. If you chewed Bubbalicious gum as a child, it's the color of the grape flavor. This is outside my usual toe repertoire and I'm really liking it. Except that I went to preschool pickup yesterday wearing green flip flops, and the combination looked like spa day for the Joker.
"Downton Abbey" on Netflix Instant streaming. It aired on PBS in January after having been on British TV last fall. These were written by Julian Fellowes, who also wrote the screenplay for Gosford Park, another fave. I watched the last episode last night, actually, and today I feel sad. If you like period pieces and could give an explication of the hierarchy of servants in a great house, this is for you.
Still plugging along with my daily chapter of Les Miserables. I look forward to it every day. Something about stopping with just one chapter, it has some kind of magic. I think I'd been Andrew Lloyd Webered into not realizing how good it would be. I really hope this book indeed has 365 chapters. Can anyone confirm this?
The trampoline the kids got for Christmas. The weather here has been so wonderful the last week, the kids are out there all the time. Last Saturday and Sunday, they stayed on it, joined throughout the day by different groups of playmates. They are out of my hair, and I can monitor their activity by the happy shrieks. Also, the trampoline is nice for adult stargazing.
AND, since I've picked back up with the 30-Day Shred workouts, my abdominal muscles have strengthened and I can jump on the trampoline without feeling like I'm going to wee wee. Too much information? Some of you ladies know what I mean.
What are your little pleasures this week?
