More Keys To the Universe

Here is yet another list of no-fail items or activities, things large or small, grand or mundane, that really do what they’re supposed to do every single time.
1) Pancakes for dinner. You can’t do it every day, of course, but once in a while it is just the thing. Especially because Ned does the cooking.
2) Nat going out somewhere with people his age. This causes JHS, or “Joyous House Stompies” in Nat.
3) Workout on a mat in a sunny spot. The sun makes my eyes close, and then I zone/zen out. All that I think about is the music in my head and repeating leg lifts with weights.
4) My black yoga pants with the sequined waistband that I got at the Wellfleet Flea Market. They hit at just the right angle so they are always flattering and they have just a little bit of bling so I’m always a bellydancer when I wear them.
5) 25 calorie Swiss Miss hot cocoa. Tastes a lot better than you might expect, a burst of hot sweetness at the end of the day.
6) My Cape Cod rental. It’s clean, bright, new, tastefully decorated and has a view of the salt marsh.
7) July
8) Joe’s low-carb pita pockets with flax and Smart Balance buttery spread. Can’t explain it.
9) J Crew’s Jackie cardigan. Always fits perfectly, comes in so many delightful colors, not too expensive, year-round fabric.
10) Nap on Ned

I am totally stealing JHS. That is awesome. And the J. Crew cardie? Excellent. Thanks for the tips 🙂
