Five things that made me happy today – 5/1/22

Turn your face to the sun, and the shadows fall behind you

maori proverb

1. Today is May Day. It was 49 deg. and cloudy when I got up. The sun was out by the time we finished breakfast, and the temperature was rising. The temperature got up to the low 60s under partly cloudy skies this afternoon. A really nice day, weather-wise.

2. After missing church last week, I was glad to return for Communion this morning. The text was about Jesus fixing fish for the disciples for breakfast after the resurrection. We sang Lord, you have come up to the Lakeshore.

3. The neighborhood coyote was around this morning, chasing the two mallards who seem to be trying to set up residence on our campus. Warnings went out to all the pet owners to keep their fur babies close and protected.

4. Lunch was Royal Thai Bistro, one of the few cuisines we didn’t partake of during the week the boys were here. I had Yakisoba Noodles, and Al had Pad Ke Mao.

5. I plan on a quiet afternoon, reading and watching whatever I want on Netflix.

How about you? What made you happy today?
