Daily 5 - Year 2, Day 219

Today has been the sort of day that spans the total gamut of emotion and experience.  I've been surprised, tired, amused, encouraged, frustrated.  I've laughed, sobbed, and felt ambivalent.  It's been quite the day, one I'm glad came, and one I'm kind of glad is over.

So, here's today's Daily 5:
  1. A home-made muffin for breakfast
  2. The surprise chance to spend some time this afternoon with one of my oldest friends, the friend who was with me the night I was healed from depression.  We hadn't seen each other in over a year, and it was great to spend a couple hours sitting in a pub, sharing and catching up.
  3. Laughing at some of the ways God has been working in both of our lives
  4. I cooked dinner tonight.  A dish that was a staple when L and I were living together, and one I hadn't eaten in probably a year.  Peas and Bacon in Alfredo Sauce, over bowtie pasta.  So good.
  5. Chocolate chip cookies
  6. Finding a way to work a clip from a Monty Python movie into a term project presentation for one of my classes
  7. Ending the night, after a very hard conversation with a family member, giggling with a friend on the phone.
  8. the anticipation of good times with friends in the next couple of days
  9. Some quiet time on the bus to just read
  10. Thankful that I'm a night owl and can squish homework into the late evenings, allowing for a week that became unexpectedly very full.
