Daily 5 - Year 2, Day 104

Today's Daily 5:
  1. sleeping in
  2. waking without the terror and weight that some mornings bring
  3. having one of dad's favorite apple streudels for breakfast this morning
  4. a winter day sunny enough to require sunglasses
  5. reading on the bus (I read another fabulous book about autism - Dancing With Max - more thoughts to come)
  6. a Kit Kat bar
  7. cute kids on the bus
  8. being referred to last night by a long time friend addressing her daughter as "Auntie Lisa" - I love that I get to be Auntie Lisa
  9. a stop at the farmer's market
  10. the little sausage shop having my favorite sausage in stock for the first time in weeks (I don't actually like much sausage, but this little shop at the farmers market sells a turkey mango sausage that is so good when it's grilled with potatoes)
  11. Google maps on my iphone and the transit directions it provides, making my ability to get to various places around the city so much easier
  12. laughter
  13. making friends through blogging - how fun is that?  that I'm "meeting" people all over the world because five years ago I started writing in this place
  14. green beans (steamed, with butter and sweet chili sauce)
  15. coconut scented bubble bath from The Body Shop
  16. actually feeling relaxed and trouble free for a few hours instead of tense, scared, exhausted
  17. green grapes
  18. dad treating me to an old fashioned plain donut
  19. magic bags
  20. escapist television

Do you watch Parenthood? One of the characters is autistic. i think they do a good job in their portrayal of the disorder; hopefully, it helps breaks the stigma. You might want to check it out, it's on NBC.

Ally - I haven't ever seen it, but I'll have to keep an eye out for it, thanks! :)
