Valentine's Day ended up as a bit of a bust. What romantic escapades did I get up to? I installed a new toilet. Maybe not splitting the atom, but it brought me joy as well.
2 I did something I had never done and it worked. Basking in the glow of accomplishment.
3 Not shelling out for an enormous water bill means Italy is one step closer.
4 I got to use the line, " A new throne for my queen." I was killing myself laughing, my other half not so much. No sense of humour.
I went home to my parents this weekend. It's lambing season, 56 as of tonight. Seeing all that new life brought me joy. ( Despite the fact it was -26, that brought me no joy)
I got to visit with my aunt, family always brings me joy but that's no secret or tiny so #6 would have to be that she let me take three boxes of my great grandmother's personal effects to copy, sort and catalogue. As the family amateur historian, the chance to look through all of those "treasures" pretty much had me hopping up and down like a little kid that has to use the bathroom.
7 would have to be the surprise I have in store for my aunt when she and my Mom come to visit in March. I'm not good keeping surprises secret so I had to not visit her this time when I was back. I always stop in to see her.
8 is the surprise I have for both of them. Not blabbing it is killing me. My Mom knows about the secret for my aunt but thinks that's it. I can hardly wait.
Second to last, hmm. I had an "A ha", moment this week. those always make me happy. Finally being able to scratch that mental itch. I realised why I don't like Lana Del Rey. Although I like her sound something about her always annoys me. It finally dawned on me, she sounds like she's heavily medicated, there's a weird kind of disconnect listening to her.
For the finale, a little vocab building.
