Happy Sunday, My Darlings!
I hope you’ve had a lovely week. Do make note of all the great stuff that’s going on, or simply what you’re thankful for this week so you can share with us!
This week, I AM HAPPY that Madame Mommy Dearest is home from Seattle. She had a wonderful time, with only a few of the typical travel-related glitches here & there.
I AM HAPPY that Madame Mommy Dearest had a good time, of course, & that she actually managed to find six more Nancy Drew books that I didn’t have yet to add to my collection! How’s that for an about-face, huh? She didn’t want me to get them at all when I first discovered nearly the whole collection, & now she’s keeping an eye out for the ones that I’m missing! :may19
I AM HAPPY that I was able to rescue a toad this week from someone’s basement. I discovered later that toads can do okay in basements because they eat spiders & other insects, but in this particular basement, with these particular people…I have my doubts. :may24 He didn’t look to be doing so great, as it was, so I’m relieved I was there to find him & get him back where he belonged.
Also along the lines of adorable wildlife critters, I AM HAPPY with the number of birds I’ve been getting lately—no doubt because I’ve been keeping them so well fed. There other day, there were five gorgeous goldfinches at a single feeder—four males & one females—plus a nuthatch & a dove. Plus I get woodpeckers, blue jays, sparrows, titmouses…just And I’ve got nine feeders going now…some seed blocks, some loose seed, some suet…& I think word is getting out amongst the avian community that I’ve got the best eats in the neighborhood. :may36
And last but not least, I AM HAPPY that I’ve got the most beautiful sunflowers growing right in the middle of my yard. Thanks to spilled bird seed, they’ve started coming up all on their own, & I’m just letting them grow! On one side of the house, there are three that are fully bloomed now, getting bigger by the day, & about six more that look as though they’ll be blooming pretty soon, too. And on the other side of the house, there are some just coming up. If I can keep the neighbor (who sometimes takes a turn at cutting the grass between the houses) from mowing them down, I think they’ll be big & beautiful, too!
That all makes me very, very happy this week! :may3
How about you? What’s going on in your life, making you happy & thankful to reach another Sunday?
