In general, it is quite the beautiful life these days. But more specifically…
*The arrival of autumn, the sights and smells and chill. Norway and Red Maples. And the upcoming Zombie Pub Crawl of course, as well as the plethora of other autumn activities and events that I hold so dear.
*Realizing that Mary Poppins, arguably one of my favorite Disney movies of childhood (did anyone else act out the individually flavored medicine scene– “cherry cordial, delicious!; strawberry, mmmm!”– repeatedly?), is both class conscious and blatantly women’s liberation. I discovered this after my housemates unearthed a record of all the MP tunes in the garage. This may explain my propensity for social justice.
*The Midtown Farmers Market, particularly the apple vendor. Sadly I missed it this Tuesday due to participating in the National Bike Counts, but will absolutely be there on Saturday. On the grocery list: jam, apples, whatever veggies look delicious and are in season. Can we get a ‘what what’ for six tomatoes for $3?
*Having so many wonderful blogs to follow and so little time. The Rejectionist, Zen Habits, Brain Pickings, and New Dress a Day are present favorites, highlighting literature with humor and snarkiness, methods for centering one’s life, quirky projects/ideas/creativity, and how to make awesome clothing from really cheap stuff respectively. Check them out and spread the love! And if you have your own favorites, do share.
