Things which are pleasing

1) The avocado for tonight’s salad is without spot or blemish

2) I have lost more than 40lbs since July and now weigh about what I did in my mid thirties–not exactly scrawny, but more than a suspicion of collar bone

3) Hansel has his learner’s permit

4) Hansel worked today

5) Gretel has passed her first semester at community college

6) I have processed payments totaling $250 in the last week on my new Square app card reader–a boon for every businesswoman with her own iphone.

7) The first three emails I opened at work this morning contained good news

8) Although MT&T bank (to whom Bank of America sold my mortgage, me all unawares) wrote me a letter which appeared to threaten imminent foreclosure, my house payments are in fact up to date and we have a home to call our own

9) The Christmas tree is lit

10) The Hottie has cleaned up–and she’s off work all month so it feels like I have live-in staff. Yippee
