Happiness



Things that made me happy today

SUNSHINE!!! The sun shined here yesterday and then again today.
I was able to work in the yard. Planted some flowers in pots and hanging baskets. Raked the yard and picked up sticks from the storms of recent weeks. Washed clothes and hung them to line dry. Watched my husband as he painted the picnic table. Got to "run" and play with our dog. (Actually he thinks he is our child) Set in the sun and read a book. Oh what joys!!

Strawberries!!! Homegrown!!! A friend gifted me with two quarts of the first of the season homegrown strawberries. They were yummy in our tummies. LOL

What a lovely day. Oh strawberries, homegrown are the best for sure. I was browsing today through recipe blogs and saw a recipe for strawberry sour cream muffins. Yum.

Have a lovely evening.
