Happy Sunday, everyone! Have you had a good week? I sincerely hope so—& we want to hear about it, so get ready to share!
As for moi, this week I AM HAPPY that The Kittehs are happy. They have been so good & so playful this week, it puts a giant smile on my face.
I AM HAPPY that I got a new window seat fixed up for The Kittehs. I found it at Goodwill a while back, but it was missing pieces & not quite the right fit for our windows. So I’ve been mulling that over, trying to figure out how I could—as Tim Gunn would say—make it work. Finally found some random parts & was able to swap out pieces from another window seat & jury rig it within an inch of its life. I am, after all, the Jury-Rig Queen, & from the minute I put it in my bedroom window, The Kittehs (especially Tigger!) have loved it!
I AM HAPPY for my dad’s “ditty bags.” Some might have called I’m a hoarder, but he saved everything. All kinds of odds & ends, extra nails & screws & part…because he just never knew when something might come in handy. And I not only still have all of that (in multiple jars & boxes & containers), but I’m exactly the same way. And because of all those random bits & pieces, I found everything I needed to fix up that window seat…& will hopefully find what I need to fix a second one I’ve got on hand.
Also this week, I AM HAPPY that I got all of the garlic I could find pulled from the ground & clipped to dry. Have I mentioned that I’ve suddenly become a Garlic Farmer because we discovered an entire garlic garden in the yard of the New House? We didn’t know what they were at first, then I pulled one & thought it was a small onion, but further cleaning & inspection proved it to be a garlic bulb. And it turns out we have oodles of it. I’ll be giving away a lot of it, but keeping a bunch, too, because I looooooove garlic & can’t wait to start using the fresh, giant cloves when I cook.
How about you—what are you feeling especially jazzed about this week? Proud of? Thankful for? Take a minute to tell us about it so we can be happy with you!
