I think I’ve got a little case of the winters. We had a little thaw out time and I jogged outside with the dogs and got to leave the house without six layers of clothing and it was awesome. Then it got crazy cold and we got more snow. That little reminder of what life is like in other seasons made it all the harder to go back to winter.
So, instead of bumming you out with a long list of little nitpicky things that have been getting on my sunlight-deprived nerves, I’m going to give you a list of things that have been making me smile.
My dogs having a blast playing together in the back yard. They LOVE the snow, and it makes me less crabby about it.
Succulents. I am a notorious plant killer, but these guys are quite hardy. I also think it’s hysterical that even our plants have dog hair on them.
And my aloe plant is sprouting little plants. I cannot even explain how nice it is to see a little green around the house.
Finding the time to read a book that made me laugh and cry and want to write love letters to all my friends.
That after 10 years of ignoring it, the cat has finally decided she loves her kitty condo. She also decided that she liked me for about five whole minutes today.
The pen and ink set J got me for Christmas. I love that I can refill it and that as long as I don’t lose it, I could have this pen forever and ever.
The little Sasquatch on the recycled paper notebook I got for my to do list.
The frosted pink sake bottle from a really good bottle of sake (that didn’t taste at all pink).
Finally taking the time to get my roots done and my hair cut. And also the fact that I’m totally incapable of taking my picture in the mirror.
What’s been making you smile?
