Stolen from Patrick who stole it from somewhere else…

1.  1374Petrarch, Italian poet (b. 1304)



Five Positive Things – Kelly had this on her blog this morning, and I thought it was a Good Thing tm.  I know I haven’t had five positive things happen to me yet, but the day is young, and I’m sure there will be more:


  1. I had coffee made for me this morning.  Just lovely to have it ready for me as I stumble out of the shower.  Coffee is life, first thing in the morning :)
  2. There is a newly released movie at home waiting for me.  Fantastic to have someone around that can, and will do, little things to make life easier.
  3. The recycling is at the end of the driveway, and I didn’t need to drag it down there.  This is a very Good Thing tm, as the recycling truck only comes once a month, and if I miss it, then the stuff is in the basement for another month.  Stinky! :(
  4. Lunch – Knowing I had little time today for lunch, as I need to leave work early, Stu had lunch waiting for me at the house today :)  Such a nice thing, and helped ensure that there was little or no panic or poor meal replacement (silly granola bar and peanut butter from the desk) due to the shortened lunch hour. Yay.

More will be added as the day progresses, or will appear tomorrow :)
