Happiness is…

A new album by Lyle Lovett

This CD is a fresh selection of traditional folk and country songs, plus ones by Townes Van Zandt, Frank Loesser, Miller and Yount, Chuck Berry and others. I love how Lyle always ends his albums with a hymn. This time it’s Keep Us Steadfast by Martin Luther. I am really enjoying this CD on my ride to and from work!

…flowers from my assistant’s garden in my office!

St. Louis broke a longstanding record, according to the National Weather Service, “enjoying” its warmest March since record-keeping started in 1874. The average temperature in St. Louis in March was 61.1 degrees, soaring past the former record of 57.7, set in 1910. We actually had several days over 90 degrees and others in the high 80s. Zut alors. I’m enjoying the flowers now, since I’m afraid they’ll be gone soon.

…a new Anne Tyler book

Just starting to read this, but what a joy to crack open a new novel by one of my favorite authors!

…estate sale finds!

Look what I found last Saturday! A nice antique dresser. And the boy was home and could carry it upstairs. Score.

(Happiness makes me use exclamation points.)
