Above quote mainly used because there was an elephant in it, and I’m easily convinced when elephants are involved. Anyway, I probably put too much stock in the little things in life. I got my hair cut yesterday (more on that in another post…), and when I first arrived, my stylist asked if I wanted something to drink. My face lit up and I asked if they had coffee…and a huge smile crossed my face when she said yes. She referenced this event later saying how happy I looked when she confirmed that they had coffee.
It’s most definitely the little things in life.
Work today was slightly aggravating…you’re never off to a good start when other nurses say, “I’m glad I don’t have your assignment, you have more patience than I do.” But we made it through. All day I thought about running, but on my way home I definitely felt tired and wanted to sit on my couch and eat cookies. (When you have caramel filled sugar cookies with a chocolate drizzle, you want to eat them too.) It was chilly on my walk home and I wished I had worn a warmer coat to work. When I opened the door to my apartment building, I spotted a box in the pile of daily deliveries with the signature Oiselle birds on it.
Last week, I finally ordered some loot from the Totally Trials contest, and I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival. Like a four year old on Christmas morning (actually, probably not…I was a fairly reserved child), I ripped open the box immediately upon arriving in my apartment, naturally laid out the goods nicely on my floor so I could take a picture like any proper blogger would.
Jeri and I are twinsies with our green/yellow shirts.
Mine will not support the Pack, however.
Getting a shipment from Oiselle made me want to run…ASAP. Forget that I thought I was tired, forget that I thought it was chilly out. Those Rogas and I headed out for a run. Only a short run, I’m not totally insane. I ran the lower loop of Central Park, accompanied by the horse carriages and some random bikers. High fives go to the guy with a running backpack and Nova shorts…we should be friends.
It was definitely a bit chilly out and my legs were nice and red when I returned home after just under four miles. A thirty minute run was definitely welcomed and I already like the shorts. Getting the shipment today was just a little thing, but it made me so excited…and it got me out the door to run.
Anyone wear Oiselle? (Besides Meggie, of course…) What’s your favorite little thing lately? You can always, always bribe me to do anything by offering me coffee…
