Life is like a 5th grade slumber party: a mix of love, friendship, gossip, food, laughs, heartache, and cute pajamas.

Good Day/Not Good Day
It's been an interesting day. As I sit with my feet up, I'm weighing all the pros and cons of the day. Let's see which list is longer, "Good Day" or "Bad Day," though I think I know how this will turn out.
Morning phone call from Daughter and GrandBoy. Always a delight to catch up on his latest antics.
Apartment still clean from last weekend's super-clean-up and a week's worth of being a good girl, cleaning as needed. Allowed me to have a relaxing day.
Perfect weather, bright blue sky and just enough breeze to keep things comfortable.
Great podcast walking tour, Made in NY, highlighting movie and television locations in Tribeca and Lower Manhattan. And, yes, that is a picture of the Ghostbusters firehouse. Must do Part 2 sometime soon.
Made a totally delish applesauce-cinnamon-walnut bundt cake.
Did not receive any bills in the mail today. Nothing. Total junk mail.
Remembered to take a book back to the library on the exact due date. Whew.
Did not wait over two minutes for any subway train today. That must be a record for a Saturday, when train schedules are so wonky.
Still relishing the come-from-behind win of the Atlanta Braves in post-season play-off game in San Francisco last night. Keep surprising us (in a good way), Los Bravos!
Jane Lynch is hosting Saturday Night Live.
Stayed healthy and safe. No stomach virus, plague, headaches, or other catastrophes.
Well, it was just a matter of time, right? My beloved Alabama Crimson Tide suffered a totally embarrassing thrashing at the hands of South Carolina. Sad, sad. Still love ya', though, Tide - now, buck up for the rest of the season. Roll Tide!
Remember the applesauce cake I made? Well, I really wanted it to be a pumpkin-spice-walnut cake, but I could not find one single can of pumpkin in all of Spanish Harlem. Seriously. And, sure, I could've tracked down a real pumpkin and done it from scratch, but I was not about to go that route. So I settled for applesauce cake. Great, but I was craving pumpkin.
I did not win the lottery. Of course, I didn't play, either, but I didn't find a winning ticket on the ground or anything.
Now. Which list is longer, hm? Of course, the "Good Day" list. But we knew that all along, right? I can rise above Bama's football loss and having to make the applesauce-pumpkin trade-off. And if I'd wanted to win the lottery, I shoulda' bought a ticket. So I won't even dignify it as a "Bad Day," but as a "Not Good Day" list. And just look at all the fabulous "Good Day" stuff!
Countin' my blessings, folks. Countin' my blessings.
