Three Beautiful Things. Everyday, Clare writes about 3 Beautiful Things that happen each day in her life. It's a wonderful blog! I can only hope to imitate her in a very small way.
1) Went to Quick Trip this week, and I ran into our Congressman, Tim Walz. Tim and I used to work together when we both taught at the same high school. It was good to see him. I did ask him a couple of political questions, and he was great about answering my concerns.
2) The next morning, I went back to Quick Trip. (I was out of Diet Coke!) As I was walking in the door, I saw one of our local weathermen walking in ahead of me. I said, "Aren't you a weatherman? He laughed and said, "Yes, I am." Then he said, "And how are you today? Are you having a good day, so far?" He engaged me in conversation like I was a really good friend of his who had pink hair. I didn't realize what a nice person he was. That was another day brightener!
3) Yesterday I made this dragonfly cane. It was fun!
