Every evening I write down ten things that defined my day. I try to capture the good and the bad, things that I am grateful for, things that I am looking forward to, and what I do that day just for me, I really just write the little details that made that day different from others. I enjoy it and it works for me. Here’s some things pulled from various days over the past week:

  1. went to Farmers Market. Forgot to put my money in my change purse. Was only able to buy one apple.
  2. My daughter was able to get home successfully despite a few flight issues
  3. Got email from a friend from writing class who moved after the class ended. Always nice to hear from people and have fun email conversation
  4. Kitchen organization angst! Sometimes my lack of space starts to get to me
  5. My next coffee table will be larger so it can accommodate larger jigsaw puzzles
  6. Had a day where I wanted to dwell and obsess. Decided I let it become a self fulfilling prophesy after having written about dwelling
  7. Grateful for some good workouts
  8. Pets slept with my daughter instead of me…for one night anyway
  9. Got to see my friend K before she went back west
  10. finished jigsaw puzzle!!

You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection. Buddha

  1. An interesting week. I would imagine a small everything in NYC apartment living would get frustrating at times–especially for someone who likes to cook. It is a positive that you are so good at organization or it could be worse! Enjoy your mother-daughter time!

  2. I really like this sentence, “6. Had a day where I wanted to dwell and obsess. ” And you did it – what a way to lean into the mood! And the quote at the end is lovely and worth remembering. Thanks, LA

      1. Best apples I ever had were (not surprisingly) from Washington state. If you ever happen upon a Spitzenburg, snatch it up. It’s an heirloom variety and, fun fact, was Thomas Jefferson’s favorite apple.
