Grace in Small Things Part 30 of 365

  1. My kitchen is clean again

Grace in Small Things Part 29 of 365

  1. I sent a book through Paperback Swap to the wrong person. But, lo and behold, it got returned to me from the post office before it ever got to them, so now I can send it to the right person. It got returned to me because apparently it weighs more than 13 ounces, and needed to be taken to the counter, not just put into the drop box for packages.
  2. I won a free book on! Yay me!
  3. I gave my coworker the blanket I knitted for his baby today (my coworker’s first day back at work) and he loved it.
  4. I still have a job. I should chant that every morning really.
  5. The library got The Elegance of the Hedgehog in, just in time for me to read along with Very Bookish. I also have the other book they’re reading in March, but I’m not sure I can read two simultaneously.

  1. Oscar parties
  2. Finishing a book the day after I got it because it was that good
  3. Meeting my friend’s new beau and her 8-month old puppy. Both are very cute boys.
  4. Weekends that seem longer than they are
  5. Brownies with vanilla bean ice cream, raspberries, and a drizzle of hot fudge. Because sometimes you just gotta.
