Blogging * Happiness * Daughterhood
This past week was rainy, cold, and cloudy in Massachusetts. And for me personally, there was much room for improvement. Yesterday was the exeption. A sunny bright spot. The rain vanished. The clouds passed. The sun came out and it was warm.
Even though I'm far from being a little girl, sometimes I still need to see my mom. And I truly appreciate that I still can. So I changed my plans and spent the day with my mother. We had a wonderful time!
We stumbled upon a yard sale and I bought a chair for two bucks! It's a plain sturdy chair and not too cute, so I'm going to paint it and get some new fabric for the seat. I'll do a before and after blog post within the next few weeks hopefully. If you follow me on delicious, you can see that I'm preparing for my chair make-over.
These pictures are from another day that I spent with my mom. We walked around the yard and I took pictures. Plus she gave me some flowers, which always make me happy.
I was also given the Lemonade Stand Award by Shirley of gfe--gluten free easily. Thank you so much for the award! It's funny, because before she gave me the award, I recently started saying "lemons to lemonade" and added it as a tagline to one of my email signatures.
Also, I was tagged by Denene of the gorgeous blog, Style & Inspiration. Check it out if you haven't already. It was quite an honor to be listed as one of her favorite bloggers in the company of such a wonderful group. Thank you again for the kindness!
One of the things that the meme requires is that you list six unimportant things that make you happy. I'm not sure that anything that makes you happy is unimportant. After all, what's more important than happiness? Nothing that I can think of. But here are six in no particular order.
1. Al B. Sure, because he's on my mind and pretty much all the time that I'm online, I'm repeatedly listening to the sampler of his new CD.
3. Cupcakes + Cookies.
4. My morning cup of coffee.
5. My flickr favorites.
And in keeping with my proclivity for not following the rules to these memes and awards, I'm changing things up a bit. Take a look at all the links on my sidebars. Anyone listed there can consider themselves one of my favorite bloggers who inspire me each and everyday. Consider yourself tagged for this happiness meme and give yourself the Lemonade Stand Award too. Congratulations to you all!
