Happy Things

These things make me happy ~ Birds at my feeder ~ chocolate pumpkin cupcakes with cinnamon pumpkin frosting ~ a single candle during dinner on an ordinary Tuesday night ~ and my Mocha playing with her favorite lamb ~ 

What makes you happy today, my friends?
I'd love to hear.

Happy Wednesday!


  1. That candle is so pretty! Sunny weather is making me happy today as well as going into work this afternoon and getting to see lots of smiling preschool faces. Happy Wednesday!

  2. Sunshine, after the torrential weather we had here yesterday, makes me happy.

  3. Sunny weather, which is lacking today and my husband and son, grin. Thank you Billie Jo for the smiles.

  4. Such a pretty, pretty candle....

    Actually, the fact that I have decided to take a blogging break, is making me happy. -smile- It's needed, for ME. So I can do more of the things, which I don't do, because I take up my most productive time of the day, at my keyboard. -smile-

    Don't even know how long it will last. But I know, I need to take one.

    Gentle hugs...

  5. All of these things make me happy too!!!! Have a lovely Wednesday my friend!

  6. I am coming over for one of those cupcakes (and coffee), LOL. They sound delicious

  7. I love to see birds at the bird feeder. Which reminds me, I need to refill their food this morning. X

  8. Being with my daughter a bit. I enjoyed making oatmeal cookie recipe I'd not made in awhile. It's from a pastor's wife when I was in grade school. I remember them, can't remember her husband's name though. Megan saw a bird drinking water from the bird bath. Different birds here than in state she lives in. Mocha is adorable. I have a friend has a dog like that and her name is Mocha as well. Hope you had a good day!!

  9. One of those cupcakes would make me happy. Ha Ha! I love anything pumpkin, and they look delicious. Rain, which we don't get enough of makes me happy. And of course being with my wonderful husband always makes me happy.

  10. I'm back from my blog break and have missed so much! Congratulations to your family! I love watching birdsfeed from my bird feeder. Your cupcakes look delicious.

  11. I love visiting your space and seeing the beautiful, cozy life that you live. I always feel as if I have a kindred spirit in you my friend. Hugs to you. ~Juli

  12. Wonderful happy things!
    I got my regular housework done early this morning, and I have the house to myself today.
    My son stopped by to unload a pickup load of mulch, so I offered to take him to lunch my treat.
    We enjoyed lunch, then he snatched the ticket and treated me!
    I'm taking a break from a new book. I'll go back to it in a few minutes.
    It's a chilly lovely day in May without being Too chilly!
    Blessings friend,

  13. One of your cupcakes would make me happy too. Lol And that candle is gorgeous. My view of the bay makes me happy, much I'm sure as your lake does. Something about water that is so healing and calming. Playing ball with my Ruby, like your Mocha, brings me joy as well. And friends like you and their wonderful blogs, just make me smile. Just sayin 😊


Thanks so much for saying hello!
