+ silver linings in a week that could have been all clouds

+ blue skies, juxtaposed by lurid green shutters

+ his safety, after a hair-raising incident – counting all my blessings and some

+ an unexpected, and much welcomed, trip to the Crescent House (as we call the family home)

+ chickpea and spinach stew: so simple, so delicious

+ grandparents, cats, gardens, magnolia trees

+ my best friends, my best boy, seated around one table

+ eggs for lunch, sitting opposite a dear old friend

+ café lattes for two

+ an overnight visitor, who arrived with the world’s best baklava in tow (thanks S!)

+ the evenings, not so black

+ books, books, books (just finished this one – in twenty-four hours!)

+ and a free weekend to curl with up with the words therein
