delights

There are a lot of things that delight me. I am delighted much of the time. While lots of people blog about things that dismay them (and many of those things also dismay me), I thought I would enjoy noting down some of the things that delight me.

The Pleasures of Pandora

I've been listening more and more to Pandora, the online music site that lets you define your own radio stations.

San Francisco has a composting program, but I could never tell the criteria for getting a compost bin set up in apartment buildings.

As of this week, to my utter delight, there's a compost collection bin in the garbage room and a fabulous little breadbox-sized box in the apartment.

The garbage company thoughtfully provided a starter box of biodegradable plastic bags to line it.

A New Set of Strings

Having a few days off around the 4th has really been a treat.

Yesterday, feeling like I had a bit of spare time to spend on something I'd enjoy, I sat down to restring my acoustic guitar.

The Shining Sea

McPhee, McPhee, and More McPhee

John McPhee books.

No Happiness Like Mine

Ink runs from the corners of my mouth.
There is no happiness like mine.
I have been eating poetry.

There are a lot of great book recommendation threads on Ask Metafilter, and I have a long list of books highlighted there that sounded interesting. The Control of Nature came up in two or three threads, so I requested it from the library.
