Happiness (today) was...
Having lunch in downtown Portland with my beautiful (and almost 23-year old, eek!) first born son:
Having the very first cherry (Gold Nugget) tomato turn ripe:
...on the very same day as my volunteer sunflower #1...:
*and* volunteer sunflower #2 decided to open:
Treating myself to a new pair of sharp (and non-rusty) garden clippers:
for my super cool (and well used) garden clipper holster:
(On at least three occasions now, I've been teased by visiting delivery people about this holster. I don't care. I *love* it.)
Locating the source of a (very) unpleasant mildewy smell in the house and being very surprised that it turned out to be this:
Painting my toes a bright new color (and one that I normally wouldn't choose):
Finding a surprise (giant) strawberry hanging (hiding?) over the outside of a potted strawberry plant:
It was delicious:
Taking a picture of two fluffy lumps on the rocks outside my garden:
and having them turn into two very handsome, if sleepy, cats:
And talking a walk at dusk in the woods with my three beloved big critters (2 donkeys and a llama):
Ummm, yeah, you're pretty much going to have to take my word on this last one, I think.
It was a happy day.
