a few nice things

Another photo-free post today . . . twice in one week! Gah!

Anyhow, despite being extremely overtired and headachey off and on all day, a few nice things happened today:

1. I received an e-mail this morning from Jennifer Barney (of "Barney Butter" fame,) who read my post a couple of days ago and offered to donate a jar of her almond butter to my boss, given her recent dietary conundrum. (She also offered to send one to me!!) What a kind and generous person she must be! I'll letcha know how the Barney Butter is once it arrives. :)

2. I have another "Kids Say the Darndest . . . "

I was feeling VERY tired this afternoon, and asked a couple of my kids whether they thought I should go to the grocery store after work tonight, or just go home. One little boy responded immediately, "pizza delivery!" I don't know whether he knew how clever he was being, but it was sure funny!!

3. I decided to skip the grocery store tonight, in favor of Vietnamese take-out. When I declined the to-go container of fish sauce, the guy who was ringing me up said, "oh -- let me just go back into the kitchen and cut your egg rolls to make sure they are vegetarian." How thoughtful of him, and I didn't even say anything about being a vegetarian! (He earned himself a buck tip -- and I don't usually tip with takeout, unless it's for complicated espresso drinks.)

Nice to know that you can still kind of have a good day, despite personal circumstances!! :)

That was very nice! Hey, I got vegan breakfast tacos at the office this morning. First time in 3 years - since I've been vegan.
