tiredness has nothing to do with a short post, does it?

i woke up this morning before 8.
my first thought, besides the normal groggy ones you have as a result of going to sleep after 1am, was this is a gorgeous day.

and....doing a random something you love for people really does cheer you up.
it's kind of a proven fact, yes?
because i sent off the canvas today (well, mom did; i was home making dinner) and i can't wait till i hear she's received it and this was just a wonderful day to make your own purely utilitarian box to hold a canvas safe.
did you catch all that?
that...that poor sentence structure and hyped-up-ness?
;)
anyhow, on another book note:

cold tangerines by shauna neiquist was recommended by danielle in this post. it prodded my heart. opened my eyes a bit more even in the intro and first short chapter.
it even made me cry. open hearts tend to do that.
profound. convicting. we treat some days like chaff, don't we? but each. day. is special. life is going on. our life is started.
recommended. highly.
it's 11:16pm, and i've got to get in bed, so.......finally: an experiment.
i love posting singular photos, but here we go. a try out.
my day in slideshow. :)
