You know those days you have where you are just happy for no specific reason?
It's one of those.
Seems like everywhere I look - there's something to smile at.
I snapped a few photos this morning of things that made me happy as my day unfolded:
My tea station. This delights me. I have no idea why - I just got the little pottery piece for .75 at Goodwill. Perhaps that's why. Or maybe it's the neat new succulent in the back. Or possibly it's the vintage spoons.
Or maybe, I just love tea.
When I sat on the porch to have my tea, I saw this.
Again - happiness in a jar.
I'm awfully easy to please aren't I?
Autumn deliciousness right there - $5 - Target.
Something else on the porch that made me happy. The beginnings of my succulent garden. There's a great little garden center in Beecher, IL that has been selling succulents for $2 each.
Remember - "I'm cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs!"?
We'll, I'm a sucker for succulents!
A great surprise in the chicken coop today.
The young ladies have begun to lay.
I should hear a rooster crowing soon.
The beautiful birds I got from McMurray Hatchery are doing fabulous!
I ran to town this morning, well, actually, I drove - and this sight met me when I came home.
There are no words to describe how I love being home.
Verily ye shall pry my dead cold hands away from this place.
I took a good hard look at this basket on the gate, and it made me happy too.
I'm thrilled that the stuff actually grew in it. It required diligent watering.
I need to spray paint the basket, yes?
This made me a bit sad, but more happy.
The end of the garden.
Sad - because time is marching on - happy - because my bones are weary of the work right now, and looking forward to the restorative rest of winter.
This absolutely thrills me.
The anticipation and hope of gobs of sunflowers next year.
A million isn't enough!
Getting dressed today, I noticed this on my dresser. A sweet little gift from my friend Tracy in Oregon - whom I met via this very blog.
I'm so blessed!
And last, but not least - it's Tuesday - and that means Sons of Anarchy.
One of my guilty pleasures.
I shan't get to see it until tomorrow, since I watch it online for free - but still...Jax?
I even named my kitty after him...
Jax - Sons of Anarkitty.
Go forth my friends!
I challenge you to find ten happy things today!
