Reasons To Be Cheerful...

I'm a baby in the heat and humidity and life has been a bit stressful this week. Luckily, there have been many things making me smile. I thought I'd share the happiness:

How to Cook Your Life - An interesting documentary focusing on the author of The Tassajara Bread Book and the connection between Zen Buddhism and daily food preparation. So much more but I'm short on words tonight.

Ohhhhhhh, this is so good when you are craving Indian food (as I do almost every day!) and don't want to pay the $30.00 minimum delivery. Boil in the bag and done in five minutes. Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-Free, No MSG and less than $3.00 a box...You can't beat it. Local SI people, I buy this at Tastebuds on Hylan. They have the most reasonable prices and are friendly, too. I buy naan at Key Food!

Le Ballon Rouge (1956)
One of my elementary school teachers showed this film to my fifth grade class. I loved it then and still do. What a cool teacher. I can now appreciate the way she was thinking. Very few films in my opinion deserve "must own" status, but this one is definitely on the list. So beautifully captures the innocence of childhood.

& last but certainly not least....This little piggy makes me smile every day.

God Bless You, my silly girl.

Must add other smiles- Pink Martini's Hey Eugene!, Stapleton Library, Uncle Louie G's Cannoli Ice and discovering band WaFoo Chamber Unit.
