 This post was inspired by the book, All in a Day by Cynthia Rylant.

Today, I'm going to:

1. Watch I Love Lucy instead of the news

2. Take a morning walk and not worry about my feet getting wet in the dew

3. Clean my refrigerator so I can enjoy its shine every time I open the door 

4. Go to work early

5. Eat an orange and not worry about the juice dripping down my chin

6. Say hello to strangers

7. Get gas at a full service station and leave a good tip--a treat for both of us

8. Play with my cats

9. Eat a good dinner

10. Look for the positive and smile


  1. Sounds good! I like the book cover - is it a children's book?

    1. It is a picture book by Cynthia Rylant. She is one of favorite children's authors because she can take a few words and make them very meaningful. The basic premise of the book is the day is full of possibilities. Make of it what you can. The art work in it is done by block printing. I read about it a while back, and didn't quite understand it all, but other artists are impressed with the work.

  2. This is a really charming idea! I try to keep this type of positive mentality in my life all the time, but there's something to be said for writing it out and really committing to enjoying and fully experiencing these things.

    1. I try to keep things positive also, but it's hard sometimes. Something like this list helps me, but what helps me the most is remembering to look at it.

  3. This sounds like the makings of a very good day!

  4. Awesome! I think I really need to have a Today tomorrow :)
