*exude joy*

i love when i can capture a feeling.
today's afternoon with the family was joy.
we played.
laughed.
joy.
really. it was.


baseball boys

zach and our dog blitz have a new system worked out.
blitz is the new perfect baseball babysitter.
zach hits the ball.
blitz catches and retrieves it while zach "runs" the bases.
it's the perfect set-up.
it's only taken blitz 5 years to learn how to fetch and BRING IT BACK.
glad zach finally taught him.

happy things

crayola's new sidewalk chalk rocks my socks.
it's bright and happy.
both good things.
my very happy peace rose is climbing it's way over my arbor.
makes mama very happy.
this silly slobbery dog.
he's happy.
that makes me happy.
this fresh cut wood for my new garden boxes.
the smell is fantastic.
and even more so...
fresh food makes me happy.
a happy husband with a saw working on 
"the list"
makes me  happy.
what makes you happy these days?
hopefully it's the little things.
they tend to add up.
