Good things

Today has been good.

 

- I went to my favorite cafe (not a Starbucks, but they offer some Starbucks drinks) and ended up with a free White Mocha Frappuccino. It wasn't exactly what I went there to get, but free is good.

 

- I had to leave work during lunch. Instead of coming back to discover that all the parking spots were taken, I found one closer to my building than the one I'd originally had.

 

- I started training someone with mild computer anxiety to help me out with a project at work. Our first session went great, even though she was learning to use software she'd never used before.

 

- A certain ticking time bomb I had expected would go off today didn't. That doesn't mean it won't go off later, but at least it didn't go off today. Very nice.
