Happy Sunday! How’s your weekend going? I’m co-teaching another cooking class today. Since things are going to get super-busy later this month, I’ve been trying to keep things low-key the rest of the weekend and cross some projects off the to-do list.

As I do every Sunday, this morning I want to share a few things that made me happy this week:

*After working in a cafe much of Friday afternoon, I made myself scallops with red lentils and veggies for dinner. Never gets old. IMG 0972 300x300 - A Small Collection of Joyous Things

*Went to a friend’s birthday celebration Wednesday night at the recently opened V-Bar Seaport. I had almost talked myself out of going out because I was so fried after clinic, but I had a great time catching up with a few old faces and meeting some new folks. The birthday girl sent me some photos from the night— this one cracked me up: IMG 0933 225x300 - A Small Collection of Joyous Things

*Playing a little “this time a year ago” game upped my optimism on a day I really needed a boost recently. Things are about to change a lot in terms of my schedule, and even though I’m nervous, I think it’s all part of a very positive bigger picture.

*Subway is the latest chain to announce it’s phasing out artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives.

*I watched The Longest Week on Netflix the other day and really liked it—the style and soundtrack were right up my alley. I wish I had the vocabulary to explain it. It reminded me of a slightly less quaint Wes Anderson movie. Also is it weird that Jason Bateman is my celebrity crush? I know there are lots of pretty, chiseled boy-things out there right now, but I guess I just have a thing for “dry, self-effacing wit” and “deadpan comic delivery.”

*These Skechers On the Go ballet flats are amazingly comfy. I kind of bought 3 colors…I’ve been loving them for errand-running after yoga or just walking around the neighborhood. They’ll probably also be great more commuting—way more support for your feet than rubber flip-flops, and way kinder than heels or blister-tastic sandals. They’re a little adorkable, but I think I can handle that.

*I’m finally getting around to reading Stephen King’s The Shining. Hardly a joyful book, but sooo good. Even better than the movie. I’ve been on a roll with great fiction lately.

*Thank all that is holy for yoga. I’ve actually been able to make some of my favorite instructors’ classes this past week, and it’s been amazing. I feel like a blissed-out wet noodle.

What’s made you happy this week?
