Some of the big and little things I'm grateful for this week:
– award ceremonies and music recitals
– driving instructors
– being invited to the culinary class lunch by my 16-year-old, who proudly walked the high school halls with his old lady
– unexpectedly running into a favorite friend
– brooms needed in the Bronx!
– ricotta cheese
– the smell of a thunderstorm (which I'm told has a name: "petrichor")
