1. The bad news: our exceedingly aged microwave died. The good news: we can replace it easily. We thought the oven and microwave were attached as one unit, but they're not. More good news: the amusement factor. When I posted on facebook about it, many people mentioned that theirs had died too, including two cousins. Is it an epidemic??
2. The bad news: The Professor's laptop's hard drive killed itself. Dead. Very Dead. The good news: there was a great deal on just the right replacement. He drove to the store and brought a new one home.
3. No bad news about this: we attended the first part of a three week seminar on using a digital camera. The program is free, part of a series of seminars at the local library. Instead of the expected 30 attendees, there were at least 150 people! Even in this first program there was great information. We enjoyed it and plan to attend the next two seminars as well.
4. The really good news. While #2 Son is visiting and waiting for visa paperwork to be processed so he can return to his research location, he has designated himself Chief Chef. The boy is an inspired cook! I taught him well--at least I gave him the basic tools and provided a positive environment for him to develop his own skills. We are being fed quite well. This was lunch--leftover lentil soup. Delicious! Magnificent! Delectable! And it pleased me to eat it with a turquoise spoon.
5. I can't let a week go by without knitting. I finished two sets of leg warmers for a friend who will wear them with her boots--
the gray and navy ones are reversible.

I hope you will continue to focus on the positive things every day. We are certainly bombarded by negative news constantly, but it's crucial that we remember the good. Susanne leads the way each week with Friday Fave Five.
This week I'm praying for the students and staff at Taft High School--just a few hours from me.
