Along with every human trial often comes some simple pleasures that can help offset the pain. I never expected I would get excited about a quick jaunt to the Apple Store, but there it is.
Simple Pleasures Like Grocery Shopping
First of all, don’t get me wrong. These simple pleasures in NO WAY make up for this shitbag POTUS, the dire consequences of COVID-19 and people hurting all over the World with the economic crisis and job loss.
But it has been unexpected how gleeful I get when I know I’m going to be out an about among people. Even when it’s behind masks and 2 meters away from any of them.
We got to go to the Apple Store yesterday to help a friend upgrade his iPhone. It seemed like a joyous and celebratory day. And it didn’t even involve cake!
Yes, I get excited planning for a trip to Costco or my local grocery store as well. Just knowing that the possibility exists that I’ll get to be out among others, gets me feeling happy.
I don’t hide my head in the sand about all that’s going wrong. And I don’t mean to be a Pollyanna about life. But I will enjoy the times that please me.
I have focused solely on the April Showers Crochet Shawl.
It will end up being about 6 feet long (at the top). It’s about halfway finished and I’m starting to feel the rows getting shorter and shorter.
It’s looking good even before blocking. And that’s saying something for lace!
