Not having to work on Mondays. Free lunch. New alpaca sweaters. A weekend of laziness punctuated with brief bouts of food. Playing cribbage with my father. Having the tree finally go away (only a day late). Looking at the expanse of beautiful hardwood floors, even if they’re not quite done. Shopping on 23rd. Knitting with a kitty on your lap. Parents. Portland. Bananas and avocados. Also eggplants. Peeks of sunshine. Sleeping in three days in a row. Crossword puzzles. Architects. Patient, patient architects. Day of the dead art. Martinis. The internet. But mostly, not having to work on Mondays.
