good things

-A delicious dinner of fluffy blueberry pancakes with our family's favorite thick syrup and salty ham. It was the perfect thing for the slightly chilly weather outside (and for my slight cold).

-An email from friends in Oregon letting me know that they had tea in a pot I had once given them this morning, and even stirred it with a spoon they picked up at St. George's Market in Belfast when they came to visit me. It's a wonderful thing to feel connected with such great friends in that wee way.

-Realizing (not for the first time) that I am, in fact, much like my Mother in terms of our culinary preoccupations and kitchen joys (we like to cook and eat the same things). This is a good thing.
