small good things: juggling boy

I've had two nights where I've turned off my brain early and prioritised going to bed before midnight. Even though the computer and my ideas and the books have all said, "But please don't go! We'll eat you up, we love you so!" I've made myself get into my jammies, crawl into bed, turn off the light, and go to sleep.

Which, now I'm much better and I'm not coughing 'til dawn, has meant whole nights of great sleep, solid sleep, sleep filled with dreams
 (including one where I actually dreamed I was sorting out my garage/playroom box by box! And no, it wasn't a nightmare where the boxes kept multiplying and repacking themselves…But maybe I woke up before that part happened…)

I've had some time to think about this month and whether I wanted there to be a focus or a "theme." I really, really (really!) loved my month of beauty. So today I thought, well, why not give another theme a try?

So this August, I dedicate my posts to all the small, good things.

Something small that made me smile or I want to share. Something simple (or simply lovely) I've enjoyed. Something Just Plain Good.

Here's my boy. He's juggling. Cool, huh?


  1. Excellent plan! I loved your boy juggling with the music, which I discovered the third time I watched.

  2. I love the idea of small good things. And T. can rock some juggling! I always wanted to be able to do this. Love it!

  3. Oooh, you'd better look out, Helena. I have a friend whose daughter started out juggling, and now she stands in the street in the middle of the night juggling things that are on fire. Be ready. One day he will have A Grand Idea that requires lighter fluid.

  4. a) I love your themes, and b) he's talented!!

  5. Definitely cool, and right in rhythm with the song :)


I love hearing from you! Thank you for your heartfelt, thoughtful responses—they lift me, and give me light.
