Pleasures of this moment

As I sit here savoring the few remaining morsels of my black bottom cupcake (thank you, Carina) I pause to reflect on the happiness of this very moment. Certainly those morsels contribute to such satisfying pleasure. I also am hearing some of my favorite sounds: older girls are assigning household duties to be done, the vacuum cleaner is already humming along with the operator (I can't quite make out the tune), dishes are clinking as they are loaded into the dishwasher, a violin is being tuned in preparation for a practice session, and two boys are discussing the marvels of Batman. Well, one of these things is not like the other, that is true (only one item on the listing tends toward the relational -- I guess it's officially out of the bag -- I love accomplishing stuff...)

At any rate, these things make me happy. If everyone gets to it all quickly, we will be able to sit together come evening and enjoy our time of leisure without regret. But wait a minute -- does this mean that I am not altogether non-relational after all? Wonders will never cease.

It means some of us are relational after things are organized and the work is done. : )
