Today while walking the dog, I came upon a little pile of poop. Why should this get my blood pumping? I think it's deer poop! I have not yet ever seen a deer in my yard, but here is evidence that one was actually here! I went on Google and typed in "deer droppings" and sure enough, I found pictoral evidence that this came from a deer. See, it's oval shaped. If it had dropped out of a bunny's ass, it would be perfectly round.
I think it was eating this smushed up pumpkin. This used to be a pretty white pumpkin that sat on my red bench. I told my son to put it in the garbage or throw it onto the riverbank, NOT to put it in my driveway flower garden! Then again, maybe the deer dragged it up to my garden. Yeah, right.
This little Paris plate that I found in an antique shop a few years ago makes me happy because it reminds me of my trip to Paris almost 10 years ago.
I keep my perfume on it. This perfume makes me happy because I can now use perfume every day again! We were discouraged from wearing perfume at work because some people find it annoying, it could trigger unpleasant memories, and lastly, why would we want to be attractive to clients? Good point! Now I can wear my Dolce and Gabbana, Estee Lauder Beautiful, Bath and Body Brown Sugar and Fig, Calvin Klein Eternity, Burberry Brit, and my Ralph Lauren Ralph perfume. Not all at once though.
New panties! Half price new panties! In pretty and fun colors! Oh yes, these make me happy! Also makes me happy that I have lost so much weight that it was actually necessary to buy new panties!
This new edition of Country Living makes me happy! I LOVE this cover. Living in a bedroom like that would make me extremely happy.
It makes me happy to slip on this ring that used to belong to my mother. For about a year after she died, I wore it. Then my brother, who had bought it for her demanded I give it to him as he wanted to give it to his fiancee, who later became his wife. I was very upset because I really loved this ring. About two years ago, my sister-in-law was going through some things and decided to give it to me. She said it rightly belonged to me and she had never worn it anyhow. I was thrilled to get it back!
My new sweater with all the spangly stuff makes me happy! I got it on sale for only $15 (before I found out that I was going to be unemployed). I wore it today.
Getting invited to my former workplace for a luncheon to honor a co-worker who is moving to a new office makes me happy. We had salad, garlic bread, lasagna, and Oreo cookie dessert! It all made my mouth very happy! Not sure what it did to my blood suger though. Oh well, this means I have to work extra hard on the treadmill. Good food and good friends...great combination!
Despite everything that is going on in my life, I truly am feeling really happy today. Right now it feels like a long overdue vacation, and I am excited about having time to actually do the things I need to do, and some time to do things I have wanted to do.
By the way, you guys had some great ideas for my new apartment! When we get in and get settled, I'll show you what I came up with. Some things might have to wait for later, but at least I'll have the vision of what to do.
Have a great Thursday!
