An email, a free afternoon and a Feb meeting

1. I receive an email informing me that I've fulfilled all the requirements of the certification course I enrolled in back in late 2010. To say I'm relieved and thankful would be an understatement. There's a smidgen of pride too that I've managed to complete the course.
2. I take the afternoon off from work. There's time to visit my homeopathic practitioner, go grocery shopping and make a pot of vegetable soup for dinner.
3. A friend calls and offers to arrange for a gathering in mid-Feb. It'll be nice to meet and catch up with everyone.

Surprises, good news and a gathering

1. I get a pleasant surprise when I check the mail. Two surprises actually. A friend many miles away has sent a card wishing me a Happy 2012. Another friend has sent a book written by a former mutual schoolmate. Love.
2. A letter from the hospital delivers some good news. I haven't said much but I have been going out of my mind with worry this past month. I'm not entirely out of the woods yet - there are a couple more health appointments to go - but I can feel a fair bit of the anxiety and worry unravelling and fading away.
3. I get an invitation on Facebook to attend a gathering of old schoolfriends in a few weeks. I've mentioned it before - it's nice to be remembered by others.

Experimenting, Glee and a phone call

1. There's time this afternoon to make some jewellery. I experiment with some resin I've had on hand for a long while. Two rings and three pendants now sit under a cover waiting for the resin to cure. 
2. I catch up on episodes of Glee and spend two hours singing along to the songs. 
3. The phone rings and it's a dear friend calling all the way from Paris. We share a happy hour catching up with each other. 

P.S. Happy New Year everyone! I'd like to wish us all peace, joy and health in 2012.
