Happiness!

I was nominated by Clowie to participate in the “Eight Photos of Happiness” blog tag… Thank you Clowie. You can click on the first photo or any photo to make the gallery photo bigger.. all the better to see my happiness! These photos are HAPPY for me. I could have done tons more photos of things and people that make me happy but I had to keep it to eight.

Here are the rules for the tag/challenge…
Thank the nominator and link back to them. Done.
Link to the creator, Ariel.
Post eight photos of happiness. The photos can be anything that represents a moment, object, place or feeling that makes you happy and a brief description why you selected it.
Spread the “happiness” by nominating up to 10 other bloggers. I am choosing to nominate any of my friends that would like to show their HAPPINESS!

*I took the day off from visiting blogs yesterday because CH and I had a busy day and today is busy too! I promise to get to your blogs later today…. Promise!

 

Good Fences #60

DSC_2093 - Copy
Joining Tex at Good Fences this Thursday. This is a horse barn near Columbia, Missouri. I have used this click previously for Barn Charm but from a different perspective without the gate. CH and I both love passing this barn on our way to Columbia. They have horses that look to be some type of gaited horse… Tennessee Walker or maybe Standardbred… both of which are very popular here. There are also several llamas that seem quite interested in the vehicles passing by on the highway. As you can see, the day I clicked this picture, llamas and horses were not cooperating.

I finally did it, Tex!

The Little Dogwood That Could

I didn’t think this Dogwood that has been with us since it was tiny was going to make it to this Spring. Well, it did! And just like the Dogwood tree didn’t look like it could make up its indecisive self, I am not able to decide to blog or not to blog. Whether to get a cat or no cat. Stay home and do comments on blogs or careen around the golf course driving CH around 18 holes of golf. Move from our small acreage to a 55 plus community, stay in Missouri or head to New Mexico, Florida, or Arizona. The only thing that I am very sure about is that I will be enjoying a glass of Missouri sweet white wine at four oh clock today. So if you could, hang in there with me until I figure out the blogging thing because it is pretty clear to me that I can’t stop commenting on the blogs that I love. I am pretty sure I will be in comments tomorrow… :D

Random 5 Friday

DSC_2616 - CopyWe have a new visitor to The Tiny Ten! He has been here about two weeks. I have not been able to get a decent picture of him… this is as good as I could do. He is camera shy. He has the sweetest little bird speak, I love hearing him talk, talk, talk in the morning… drink-your-tea! He is right outside our family room window in the bush which he has claimed as his own. He has a tiny fierce and protects his rights to that bush.

I am totally amazed by a modification to my clothing choice in my life. I have fallen out of love with jeans… people who know me know I love my jeans. My new fascination with comfortable clothing that makes me HAPPY is clothing from ATHLETA. I can’t stay away from their online site. It is the long and capri bottoms, the Asana tees, and the hoodies that make me excited about getting dressed in the morning again and has me doing my heart healthy walks around The Tiny Ten.

I can’t get anything done because I am watching Shelly’s Tinykittens. Her new fosters are The Sesame Street Kittens and she has a Livestream 24/7 cam. Five little kittens thrown in a trash can. Found by Handyman Joel when he heard little mews. My anger can’t be contained. Now they have a bright and happy future ahead of them with the promise of homes where they will be loved and respected. As I get ready to hit publish the kittens have taken down the cam! Have to wait till Shelly wakes up and gets cam back in position. These kittens are little scamps and love taking down the camera.

I am joining Nancy at A Rural Journal for Random 5 Friday. Welcome back Nancy and thank you for R5F!
