3 things that are making me happy lately ...
1. That I was wearing my trusty, beaten-up pair of glasses when that can of Fix-a-Flat I was trying to use sputtered stinky-smelling stuff all over me, including my face. Yikes. I'm also glad I noticed that reaaaallly flat tire while pulling out of my driveway and that it didn't go flat while I was on the road. My mom was appalled when I mentioned that I had put the spare tire on my car once, years ago, when I lived in California. She started talking about how cars fall on people and people lose their leg in such accidents.
2. Topping off lunch at the library on Friday with a gargantuan piece of lemon crunch cake (see it here) from The Alley. You don't expect gourmet eats out of a bowling-alley restaurant, but I've heard great things about their food, and this cake was a nice introduction to the menu. :) Moist and lemony, with some caramely, crunchy bits on top for some nice textural contrast.
3. Hair styling tutorials usually baffle me, but I did manage to braid part of my hair and pin it into place, leaving the rest of my hair down. Elementary, I know, but a triumph for me. :)
