Despite the fact that my sickness goes on and has made my voice sound like I imagine sea urchins would sound if they talked, I had a full and satisfying day. Unfortunately (for the purposes of this project), none of it was new to me.
First, I took my Ma on a belated birthday outing to Crown & Crumpet, a tea room in Ghirardelli Square, which I visited with my friend Colleen as part of a GGA playdate a few months back. The pastries and other goodies were every bit as uniquely wonderful as I remember, but the teas we chose were not as memorable to me as those Colleen and I sampled when we were there.
In the evening I watched Casablanca with a group of friends, which was in follow-up to a Facebook conversation on the subject. I really do love that movie. But anyway, that was also not new to me.

I just want to say that today's post finds me very happy and in a holistically good mental space. I can say it's been a while since I felt good about every single area of my life. Today is one such day...so I go to sleep with a deep feeling of gratitude. I hope this finds you the same...
