So this was my last week of movement elective at one of the community hospitals–one of the things making me happy is people’s kindness and generosity.
I came out of a patient’s room yesterday to find a whole food’s chocolate mousse cake that said “best wishes Dr. Stone!” and it so warmed my heart. It was from the nursing staff in the clinic! And i’m only a resident there.
Another would be bright nail polish. I painted my nails in honor of Easter last evening a lovely shade of electric pink (even got a compliment on them in Trader Joes’ Today). Zoya’s Ali. ( http://www.zoya.com ) love love love them.
Store Reward Programs would be another. I happen to have a Banana republic card that I always pay back immediately, but that when I use it to buy work clothes, I always manage to get 30-40% off a purchase and eventually earn a $10 credit off. which is pretty awesome.
Last, but most definitely not least is Easter. Christmas of course gets a lot of attention, but the older I have gotten, the more I appreciate Easter. A holiday celebrating the sacrifice of God and the victory over death and sickness and evil. Doesn’t get much better than that.
Hopefully my pecan salted caramel tart is a success tomorrow. Fingers crossed that the caramel sets, there aren’t too many pecans (is that possible?) and that the crust isn’t doughy….i’m walking away from staring at it now.
i shall already say–
CHRIST THE LORD IS RISEN INDEED! HALLELUJAH!
