Sunshiny Sunday #6

Here we go with three awesome and wonderful things that make me happy:

1) It is always exciting to see a launch of any kind while in Florida…this time an Atlas delivering GPS satellites!

2) Friends from school surprising me for my birthday…love them!!!

3) sweetie pie, growing up so fast…it’s hard to believe!! She makes me laugh :) :)

cool in her shades!!

trying to share with the kitty

2) the guys and girls gave me a wine tasting for Christmas, and we took advantage of it last night….great place, Filipo Marc Winery! We tasted 15 different wines, with great explanations and tasty snacks. Yum!! Then we went out to dinner…great night with those favorite folks of mine:)))

3) goofy cat has decided that sleeping on cast-aside newspaper from Christmas boxes makes the best place for a nap….lots of crinkling going on:)))

Super Saturday #21

Hurray for Super Saturday #21…

Beautiful things, exciting things, inspiring ones…I’ll share with you those things that bring me joy and make me happy!

 

Here are three things that make me happy:

 

1) I did remember to buy some flowers to pass out to the Meals on Wheels seniors:

pretty yellow!

 

Comments included: “Thank you sooo much!”, “These will sure brighten up my day”, and my favorite: “ohhh, posies for my sweetie!” from a gentlemen for his wife:))  There were also a few shocked faces, but I think everyone liked the sunny flowers!

After leaving some at the senior center where the meals are prepared, I took these beauties home to brighten up my kitchen!

2) This over-laden apple tree is in one of the senior’s back yards. I’ve watched it with blossoms and then tons of apples this year after absolutely none last year! Check out the spike of tree at the top still trying to stand tall after all the rest of the branches have bent under the load of apples! I guess we could use this for a metaphor of our lives, huh? Stand tall, everyone:))

3) …and you know this little, okay big, guy is my forever buddy!! He had a birthday…12 now!!! Yikes! I guess he needs his beauty sleep:)

look at that cute little nose:)

 

Enjoy your last Saturday in October….are you ready for Halloween??

Super Saturday #18

Hurray for Super Saturday #18…

Beautiful things, exciting things, inspiring ones…I’ll share with you those things that bring me joy and make me happy!

 

Here are three things that make me happy:

 

1) trying to decide if the cat is approving of my reading material or keeping me from reading it:)))

2) enjoying the pouring rain from inside the house…curled up, reading…if the cat allows it…, watching mindless TV  -  all just because I can!   A definite perk of being retired!!

3) having a lovely little lady on the Meals on Wheels route say to me, ” Dear, I love your hair. It makes me happy!”  Isn’t that the sweetest thing to hear???

Today I appreciate 2 special animals who make me happy:

You have met both of them before…

The cat: before and after the ‘coming of the dog’

before, just relaxing

and after, keeping an eye out...

and then, the puppy, visiting:))))

hi, everyone!!

pretty puppy....

I love recipes also ….both old and new:

Our favorite spaghetti salad…

and then a new one…the easiest ever cobbler

any kind of fruit, dry cake mix, and 7Up!!

And always….SUNSHINE!!

 

What makes you happy?? Go after it and embrace it forever:)
