Even though I’ve been in somewhat of a depression lately, there were some happy, joyful and glorious things that have happened over the past week or so. The first of these was that after almost a year of not being able to use my oven, I got a new stove. Yes, I was able to use the top of the stove, but I haven’t made any baked goods in a long time. So, this week I bought apples and am looking forward to baking a pie over the weekend. Yum!
My daughter and I went to see Beauty and the Beast this week. This movie was just wonderful. Belle was portrayed exactly the way I always felt that she was. A strong, intelligent woman who found her small town to be more than a little too small. Belle has to be the one Disney “princess” with whom I feel an actual affinity. Books, books, books!
This was a big week, since my daughter and I also went to see The Sleeping Beauty by the Russian National Ballet this week. This was actually my birthday gift from my birthday way back in September. You have to wait for the good things. I love, love, love going to the ballet, and this one was wonderful! What a great time.
Tonight, we’re going to see a middle-school production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. I know that a lot of people dislike going to these events, but I love them. The kids put their hearts and souls into the play, they work really hard, and often-times they are the biggest surprise regarding the talent some of the performers have. One of the girls my daughter babysits will be in the play, and I really look forward it seeing her. She’s very talented, and I enjoyed the play she was in last year. Lots of fun!
Those are my good, happy and fun things lately. Please share your good things!
