Loving the little things

I think I’m having a week of reflection. I can’t help it! I have to get it out.

Today was a filled with small things that made me smile. I really love it when I take the time to stop and appreciate things when they come instead of worrying about things that haven’t happened yet or regretting things that have already happened.

This is what made me smile today:

I'd given up on them!

Waking up silently cursing my tomato seeds because they hadn’t sprouted yet, and wandering into the bathroom (it’s a nice sunny one) to find that two of them had crept up overnight.

Leon giving me lovey eyes and wanting to make out with me (not really, he just likes licking my nose when he can reach it).

Damara coming up to me for quiet cuddles while Leon was off causing mischief.

Learning that I can make it to a not-a-baby-shower party for one of my good friends in Wellington.

Ordering a crap-ton of compost and potting mix from a local nursery that will deliver to my door. Yes, getting my license is on my to-do list.

Getting Moose to turn around and go back home (as in not follow me) when I walked to the store.

Having a semi-celebrity spotting moment  at the grocery store when I recognized someone that I’ve tweeted at since the February earthquakes in the #eqnz twitter stream. Unfortunately I was too shy to say hello, but it was a cool moment.

Swapping cat stories with the check-out chicks at the store. I am not alone in my crazy cat lady status.

Realizing I picked a damn good bottle of Pinot noir at the store earlier. I will be buying this wine again.

Getting lovely text messages from Ben.

Leon's kitty sling

Having a glass of said wine while making one of my favorite dinners (it’s not recipe post worthy — just pasta bolognese).

Finding out the wine goes fantastically well with said favorite dinner.

Having awesome people comment on this blog.

Finding a not-so-horrible picture of Leon in our new kitty sling!

Thank you to everyone who had a part in making me smile today! :)

    A kitty sling! Never heard of such a thing – but it’s gorgeous. You kitty is HUGE. :)

    Lawl, I am so glad you put a picture up of Leon in his baby sling. Something you will love forever. I am also glad I am deemed awesome. I watched part of the Martha Stewart show today because they discussed fall produce. Seeing the yummy tomatoes made me want some. So I am super happy you will be getting to have fresh ones too!

    I’ve ALSO realized that I can pretend to be eating super fresh foods with you when it will be the dead of winter, for me.

    Love the little tomato plants popping up, and the kitty in the sling. Both very adorable pictures to me.

    You’ve reminded me that I really need to plant some seeds. I’m so behind the 8-ball this year.

    I’ve always been told you have till Labour Day weekend (NZ) to get your stuff in, depending on what you’re planting!

    Maybe you should give Paul a pile of seed mix and seeds and have him do it for you!
