Daily 5 - Year 2, Day 298

Though I'm ending the day in a rather melancholy state, a bit lost in thought, it was really, all things considered, a lovely day, filled with things in which I delight, or in which I find rest, and was one of the days where I kept notes in my phone more carefully than usual, thus producing a longer list for the day.

Today's Daily 5:
  1. a favorite red tank top, cuffed skinny jeans, and flip-flops
  2. walking in the sun to a farmer's market I'd never been to
  3. the goofy thrill that came from picking up a couple of those pop-can plastic rings, that hadn't been cup, from the ground of the park, and bringing them home to cut open, and prevent them from getting caught around birds and small animals (I was indoctrinated well, as a child)
  4. listening to happy music on my iphone as I walked (Regina Spektor, Great Big Sea, U2, The Dixie Chicks, Ray Charles and others - it was an eclectic sort of walk)
  5. feeling inspiration brewing after a week of letting my soul rest and be fed
  6. fruit salad, with lots of berries
  7. an Almond Joy bar from my carefully hoarded stash, eaten while bus reading
  8. bus reading for the first time in months - bits and pieces of two books, one fiction and one non-fiction
  9. new concepts that challenge my thinking and inspire
  10. fiction that draws me deeply into the story
  11. wearing a pair of earrings that are delicately fashioned and remind me of travel and faraway places
  12. watching through the kitchen window as a wild rabbit snacked on clover in the backyard
  13. bubble baths whenever I feel like it, in the deep soaker tub in mom and dad's bathroom
  14. the thrill of watching the plants I planted in the garden begin to take shape and life
  15. green beans, lightly steamed, and coated with butter and sweet chili sauce
