Just a Few Things

I see and read other people's blogs where they make lists of what makes them happy. Since I was over run in a good way with kids and neighbors last night and had no time to scrap, I thought why not make a happy list of this weeks occurrences. Yeah...why not. So in no particular order, here is a little of my "happy" this week:
New lounge chairs for the pool. Despite them being the cause of my speeding ticket earlier this week, I still love them. When I sit in them I wonder how my behind ever survived before their existence. The little pink thing in the chair is a happy thing, too. Double whammy in one shot. Awesome!
A little girl that still thinks a toad/frog can be a prince. She also automatically knows that holding this prince requires handwashing. No kissing allowed! She can blow on him instead.
Visits at work from a bendable kid. Honestly, this kid is a pretzel. He can fold himself into any position. If I crossed my leg, like he has done above, it would take me a week to unwind and another month to get all the kinks out.
Having Huck Finn (or is it Tom Sawyer?) for a lawn mowing nephew. Notice the handmade sling shot made completely from office supplies? Creative play at the age of twelve is awesome. Being old enough to cut the grass makes it even better. He's growing up into a non-lazy boy/teen/man. That makes me giddy with joy.
Finally, my dream of living in a doughnut has come to fruition. No fruit filling...just cream. Talk about happy! Life is good. And yes, I deperately need a hair cut, but that is a long story for another time.
Have a happy Friday! I hope your weekend is filled with only good things. Thanks for stopping by today!

I am lovin' all your happy :-) Those loung chairs look way comfy, when can we come over? Glad Em blows kisses... that way if froggy doesn't become a Prince Sal from Manilla won't be visiting. Nick's contortions are amazing, my word is that fella growing tall. Now since I've no nephews could I borrow the one who mows? I've lots of office supplies he can use. Just sayin'. As for your donut... Bavian Creme would be my choice. Love the blue water icing... and just the right size for me too. By the way love the layout, glad you got rid of the pink for the sensibilities of your subject ;-)
