Happiness is . . .

- Eskimo kissing a not-so-tiny grey kitten
- Handel's Messiah
- splurging on lovely, half-price skin care
- planning a pair of mittens
- emails
- filling a teacup with red and white Dutch licorice (Tim's family has converted me)
- cleaning out the purse/satchel
- an hour-long walk on during my lunch break
- workshopping the villanelle in poetry class this morning
- tidied finances
- the prospect of medieval history documentaries
- baking a loaf of caraway rye
