Here are a few things that have happened lately, none of which I feel like writing an entire blog post about at the moment:
I got a random package in the mail last week--a Sock Gram from Jeff. Too cute. I giggled when I opened the package to see a pair of Chuck Taylor-esque socks and a note for me. It makes me feel good to know that Jeff knows me well enough to send me socks instead of something like flowers (although I must say, it's nice when I get flowers, too). And it always makes my day when I get a pleasant surprise in the mail.
My dogs have unlimited access to a large backyard with beautiful, green grass to run amuck in. And yet, they'd rather lay down on the steps or on the brick walkway leading up to the grass. When Jeff's cousin comes over with his dog Dodger, my dogs won't play with him on the grass. I guess living in apartments all these years will do that to a pup.
Great Expatations. It's a story about the most surprising thing I took away from my time abroad: a newfound ability to tolerate spicy foods. I wrote a little about this before in a previous post. This book was also the first time I've ever had something published in a book. Go me!
