I got an email from a friend the other day, telling me how he enjoyed reading my "delights" posts and what a happy life I seemed to be living.  In the interest of full disclosure, I felt a little confession was in order:  My life is not actually a series of full time delights.  Shocking, I know.  Taking the time to write down things that ARE delightful is a good reminder to me of all that IS wonderful, especially when I am feeling down.  And generally, the more I write, the more I realize what there is to write about.  To quote Abraham Lincoln, "Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."     If I chose, there are plenty of things I could write about that are NOT delighting me, but would that really make me feel better?  Would it make you feel better to read it?  ha!

So.... my Sunday delights:
  1. Frank conversations.
  2. Beautifully designed movies:  Despicable Me and A Single Man
  3. Steel cut oatmeal with summer berries. 
  4. Another scene up in Opera a la Carte.
  5. Seeing the rest of the summer schedule all on ONE page. 
  6. Notes from long lost friends.
  7. My scheme for managing finances. See details HERE.  Really, I cannot explain how happy this system makes me.  Especially if you are a freelancer with head-scratching finances, check it out.
