gardens -- My dad tells me his irises on the Island are just about done, but thanks to our late growing season ours are just beginning. For whatever reason I don't see a lot of flowers in my travels, but I did spot a nice bed of irises en route to work. Also appreciating the lilacs -- so fragrant.
desk art -- I picked up a brown wooden frame at the dollar store, but once I brought it home I didn't love how it looked. Turned out it just needed a little white paint. It's not perfect, but let's call it rustic.
gratitude -- A hectic acute-care call shift left me grateful for the predictability and pace we have in oncology. I know some thrive in a fast-moving environment, but that's not me. Though I spent the whole shift frustrated, in retrospect it left me appreciative, both of the physicians who tackle front-line care and of the more controlled nature of my own specialty.
|also grateful for a sprinkle doughnut from a patient's family (i.e. my day wasn't all bad)|
pizza -- I made my second ever pizza, featuring whatever was in my fridge (tahini, cheese, spinach, mushrooms, and sausage).
