Some minor futzing about the house, and I ended up running both late & cranky...all exacerbated by the fact that I've got a stupid cold. Said cold causes my nose to alternately run & stop working altogether, so my nose & upper lip are abused, my lips are dry (from when I have to mouth-breathe), and my eyes feel all squinty.
But I ran into an aquaintance at the trolley stop, and had a lovely chat all the way to work. I got to work and my boss had a going away gift for me (I learned Monday that my extended temp job is ending at the end of this week), including a lovely note about how they'll miss me. She & my co-worker want to take me out to lunch Friday. The cafeteria here was offering Butternut Squash & Apple soup today, which I had, and now I'm feeling warm & cozy & loved. :)
I *do* take joys in the little things.
