Getting my Bodleian Reader card (Oxford University library) and having access to +3 million items, as well as to all of the historic reading rooms. I've been looking forward to this for years.

:-o Oh my, oh wow, aileth.

And you know what makes my day? Hearing you say that you have obtained your Bodleian Reader card, with all its privileges and access. :D So wonderfully exciting!

Gasp! I had no idea!

One of the things that made my day today, and might raise a johobbit smile, is finding a nice little readymade salad at the small supermarket across the road from home. Mmm. Ah, and some hot cross buns! Anticipation of eating them both starting tomorrow!

-New ideas for my various writings
-Discovering a new song
-Reese's
-Looking at Narnia props
-Finding cool stuff (i.e., swords, knives, lanterns and old books) in antique stores
-Lucid dreams the night before

And last but not least...
-News posts on Narniaweb! :D

Things that make my day:
*Reaching the halfway point in an extra long audiobook.
*72% dark chocolate. :x
*Reading a library book that I hadn't actually planned to read and enjoying it. Yes, I randomly picked up a book at the library just to have something to checkout even though I had at least 6 library books at home and now I'm reading the new library book instead of the stack I already had. ;))
*Spring weather. :D
*Listening to Red Mountain Music's The Gadsby Project.

Things that make my day:

It's gotten slightly colder for a while(but still sunny), so I can work outside doing more longer, I don't do well in the heat.

Hot cocoa/coffee

I got done what I wanted to today, with plenty of time left over for a nap and tons of leisure time :D
