“If the stars should appear but one night every thousand years how man would marvel and stare.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Holy cow, today was a busy day! First, I had a new baby come to daycare, there was a big adjustment for my rowdy boys to have a little girl around! I have had ALL boys in my daycare since November, so much roughhousing! But they all loved on her, and then scared her with their loudness so I ended up having to snuggle her the second half of the day…not that I minded 😊

Second, I am part of a wonderful Buy Nothing community for the west side of Manhattan. We all gift things to each other, ask each other for things we need, and always offer up gratitude for it all. A kind Buy Nothing friend gifted me a huge box of fiction books (which included a lot of Shakespeare works I did not previously own). I have been able to grow my home library SO much — for free — with this generous group, I just love it.

Third, my husband snagged me a ticket to see New Kids On the Block, Salt & Peppa, Naughty By Nature, Debbie Gibson, AND Tiffany! ALL IN ONE SHOW! Just one ticket for me, I can go relive my childhood for a night. 🤗🤗🤗 I remember being so sad that my friends got to see NKOTB in elementary school, and then bummed again when I missed out on their tour a couple years ago…but watch out boys, I’m coming for you!

And fourth, thanks to a great friend I will not only be able to attend Symphony in the Flint Hills, I will actually get to be a part of it through and interactive art piece! I FINALLY GET TO GO!!! More details to come as I find out more about what I’ll be doing later.

Wow, so much good came from this day, I am overwhelmed! I didn’t even think twice about the diet, I just ate what I was supposed to, logged it, and moved on. Same for my exercise, I didn’t stress over it at all, just went down the list, did it, logged it, and moved on.

The theme for Symphony in the Flint Hills 2019 is “Ad Astra”, so tonight’s song needs to be something about stars…I searched my iTunes library and Corinne Bailey Rae’s “Like a Star” came up first. 😊 This is a chill tune you can listen to while out under the stars sipping a glass of wine…nice…
