Joy In the Morning

1) A new jar of peanut butter with the swirl smiling innocently in the smooth middle, and getting to be the first to stick my knife into it.
2) Another bright yellow and orange and green mid-fall morning.
3) Little boy still asleep and still little.
4) The gigantic confident man who has replaced my other little boy, living his entire secret life behind a closed door covered with stickers and hostile signs leftover from pre-adolesence, also still asleep.
5) Lesson plan finished and thorough.
6) The absence of pain in my right foot.
7) Head clear and no longer cloudy with sad.
8) Coffee with snowy sweet foam
9) Anticipating Baby Bellies this afternoon
10) Laughing with Ned at something bizarre on YouTube, from our childhood.


Ah Cookie Puss, also the title of the first Beastie Boys song I ever heard.

Not sure if Fudgie the Whale was ever immortalized in a rap song!
