30 Days of Happiness : Just Snippets

30 Days of Happiness : Just Snippets
The past couple days have been so busy it was nice to have a break today and just relax. Did laundry, ate a yummy lunch, sewed a bit and took a nap. I also noticed the dogwood is the quickest turning tree around here. It’s looks so beautiful in the afternoon sun.

Finally getting a chance to wear the Simple slippers I got on sale way back when, when it was too warm for them. Now they are keeping my toes toasty on these early autumn days. (I know that technically it’s still summer, late summer to be exact, but it just feels like autumn already. And I’m always so excited and can’t wait for this season to arrive, I probably jump the gun a bit.)

But I’m still hanging clothes out to dry.

Now I know I’ve posted so many photos of my pets since starting this Happiness Journey, but they are going to creep into this post as well. All the animals around here are such a wealth of joy, not only to me, but everyone.

I’m not sure I’ve officially introduced you to our dog, Kippy. She’s a sweetheart. A little neurotic but still sweet. She’ll be 11 in November but acts like a puppy. (You can also see another pair of my Simple Shoes in that photo. What can I say? They make great shoes. I really want these.)

I snapped this photo of a yawning Pansy yesterday.

Tonight I’m contemplating going to a neighbors bonfire. They are lighting pine trees, apparently they burn beautifully.

30 Days of Happiness : The Feather Adventure

30 Days of Happiness : The Feather Adventure
This bit of happiness actually comes from last night. (And I realize I’ve been sharing a lot about my cat but this was too cute to not be posted.) It started when I was just wandering the yard and noticing the odd amount of black feathers scattered about. I’m guessing it’s from all the crows that are around here. So I began to gather. Just a few at first.

Then more.

And finally I had thirteen altogether.

Oh, I’ll put them in the well cover and get some interesting photos.

Everything was going fine at first, until someone got a little curious.

Then very playful.
30 Days of Happiness : The Feather Adventure
Ok, that’s just cute.

She slowed down so I egged her on by raining the feathers down on her.
30 Days of Happiness : The Feather Adventure
Mmm, this one is tasty.
30 Days of Happiness : The Feather Adventure
Hold on, I have an itch.
30 Days of Happiness : The Feather Adventure
OK, back to playing.

I hope you’re finding time to be playful too.

30 Days of Happiness : Labor Day.

30 Days of Happiness : Labor Day.
I realize today is a holiday and I should be picnicking it up with friends and family but the loner in me has this tendency to opt to just stay home and sew and read. Which is exactly what I did. (The Journal Cover on the top of the pile in the above photo is via Anodyne Design.)
Bench Monday : 9.7
Hope you all in the states had a lovely Labor Day and Happiest of Bench Mondays to you!

30 Days of Happiness : More Furbabies

Two's Company...
Two’s company.
...Three's a Crowd.
But three’s a crowd.

Meet Pansy (the calico) and Nigella (the black and white). They are my Grandma’s cats. Their cuteness always brightens my day too.
I caught this sight while making farina for dinner. (It was either that or pancakes–I was in a breakfast for dinner mood tonight.) It’s not a common thing to see these three in such close proximity. If it weren’t for the door, there would be some major hissing and growling going on. Grandma’s cats are sweethearts but Lily has a bit of a mean streak in her. But I love her regardless.

Happy Friday to you all!

30 Days of Happiness : Lily’s Jaw

30 Days of Happiness : Lily's Jaw : Champion Yawn!
One thing that always makes me happy is my cat. (Well, the dog makes me happy too.) But the cat especially because back in March or so, she was hit by a car and had a broken jaw. Since she was only seven at the time and very loved, I decided to go ahead with an out-of-my-price-range surgery. It’s put a big dent in my savings but in the end, she is my baby and a source of joy to me. And the fact that she is doing swimmingly is a great relief. I mean, just look at that champion yawn!
