expectations can be a dangerous thing. often they set us up for failure as rarely can something meet what high expectations we set. either for ourselves, someone else, something else.... of course, i don't want to go the other way - which is expect nothing so you will never be disappointed, right?
anyway - all of that is much too deep for such a glorious saturday morning. my heart is happy (my unemployment benefits were extended - very unexpectedly) and i'm going to make the most of the day. i went to see julie and julia last night with a dear friend - loved the movie - it exceeded my expectations. it made me love meryl streep and stanley tucchi even more than i already did.
it also inspired me to cook something different tonight. so i'm off to buy fresh ingredients with the same joy that julia shopped the french markets. i may chortle just like her in joy. hope you do too.
oh...what's for dinner? well you will see later.
