Refrigerator Door

We've come to the end of Olivia's magnets. The next fridge door belongs to my friend Charlotte.

(she considers this to be her best magnet!)

That's it for today!

WE DO the DANCE of JOY

(thatís Balkiís line from "Perfect Strangers")

26 July 2001

Some days are diamonds. Days that sparkle. Days when nothing goes wrong and things go right. Today was that kind of a day.

Oh I didnít win the lottery. Nothing that would make the headlines happened. In fact, it was a rather ordinary day. I got up early to make some dents in work that needs to be finished by Saturday, and because I got up so early, I managed to finish not one, but two tapes. Yay me!

With a good bit of work under my belt, I let myself take some time off to make a slide show that I want to take to my cousins this weekend. Itís such a joy to work on the new computer and I sailed through the slide show in no time flat.

At 10 or so I drove downtown to the newspaper office to chat with the Entertainment Editor and pick up the mail that has been piling up for me since March, the last time I was down there.

Thereís something exciting about being at the newspaper office. Iíve never worked for a newspaper, unless you count The Argus, the fly-by-night give away paper for which I worked when I was first getting back to work after David started school.

But that doesnít count. The Davis Enterprise is a real newspaper and as I wandered through the cubicles, seeing all the on-screen layout that is done these days (at The Argus it was strictly paste-up) it was just kind of exciting. I could work in a place like that.

I left the office with a writing assignment which I will be working on next week, and stopped at the supermarket to fill the empty larders here at home. It was a good shopping day. Meat was 2 for 1 and I was able to get enough food to last us for about two weeks and spent less than I usually do for one week. Now thereĎs something to make a person happy!

When I came home, I had a nice phone call from a friend I havenít spoken with in awhile. While she wasnít in the cheeriest of moods because of difficulties in her life at the moment, the call itself brought a smile to my face. It was so good to hear her voice again. I hate it when people move out of my day to day life, and itís always nice to know that despite miles, the relationships remain strong.

In the afternoon, I actually put my nose to the grindstone and got a lot of work done. The psychiatrist I work for is going on a 2 week vacation starting on Saturday, so if I get this backlog finished, Iíll have two whole weeks with no pressure, and that definitely puts a smile on my face.

The expected triple-digit temperatures didnít materialize and it was actually quite pleasant here in the house.

And the evening ends with West Wing.

For a relatiely normal day, it was very pleasant and Iím still dancing the dance of joy.
