Life is Good

28th November 2010


I’m sitting here in my pajamas and robe writing this in a notebook as Sarge makes us breakfast.  It is 3.30 and life is good.

I’ve been thinking that thought since Thursday.  It’s been going through my head like a mantra.  I’m sitting here on Friday night eating Chinese food and watching The Golden Girls reruns.  And life is good.  We’re trudging through snow tracks on Saturday on the hunt for cake and hot chocolate, and life is good.  We came home last night and finally had those beers and watched Raging Bull, and life is good.

After a lazy morning, we got up and talked to my Dad about plans for Hogmanay.  As I thought about the prospect of spending New Year’s Eve on an island in a cottage, with some of my favourite people,  I actually said, ‘life is good.’  As I listened to Sarge and my Dad talking on the phone, life was great.

OK, I don’t have a job to go to tomorrow, but that just means I haven’t found the right one to go to yet.

I have warm socks on my feet, good books to read, words to write and people to love.

Life is good.

Hot chocolate. Found yesterday.

I hope it’s good for you, too.  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

    Life is very good. It’s a blessing that you’re able to feel that so consistently, and I’m fortunate enough to share that blessing with you.

    Thanks for the reminder. Sometimes it’s hard to keep that in your head: life is good. *repeats to self over and over again*

    Lovely post. As I type this, I’m in a cozy warm bed, coffee by my side, looking up the Hudson River bathed in sunlight. Yup, life is good!

    I hope you’ll post about Hogmanay and explain it all to your non-UK readers!

      You have a lovely view! I’m glad life is good. Keep enjoying the day!

      I linked to the Wiki page for Hogmanay:


      It’s the last day of the year/the New Year period.

      I’ll post about it when it comes, this is just a preview. Don’t want to get ahead of myself!
