life's greatest blessing is a happy heart
today was my last day as a full time administrative assistant.
and how do i celebrate?
by going to goodwill and buying dishware.
someone, please, put on the brakes! my kitchen is the size of a walk-in closet and our china cabinet is about to implode.
but lately, for me, dishes are bordering on fine art. like this one:
and these dishes are so pretty i could eat them alone:
all of these dishes, including the syrupy little cup at the top, came to a whopping total of $1.70. who could resist?
and the big score of the day was a free pair of red danskos from freecycle. in my exact size.
now that's celebration.
but really. i feel a little bit anti-climatic right now. i thought i had all my ducks lined up when i said my farewells at the workplace around 1pm today. i thought i had everything tied up and neatly stacked in a row. but after i left a feeling crept over me, a sense of things undone and askew. boxes half open. mouths gaping.
but i think it is just the sudden opening in my own life staring up at me. all the things in my own world, all the dreams, hopes and goals that i must now start piecing back together and ordering.
i think i'll walk over to the china cabinet in my soft new shoes and start there!
