#100happydays – Days 64 Through 70
Here is my tenth week of #100happydays.
Day 64 – September 8, 2014: It is snowing today – the first snow storm of the year. There is absolutely nothing happy about snow on September 8th. But, I do love the beauty in fresh white snow against a backdrop of vivid summer colours. And, taking this photo made me smile and freeze all at the same time.
Day 65 – September 9, 2014: Roasted cherry tomatoes with basil and rosemary cooked in garlic macadamia nut oil – cooked by my husband using the tomatoes he rescued from the garden when the snow started falling. No joke, this might have been the most delicious thing I have ever eaten.
Day 66 – September 10, 2014: It is snowing again – like massive amounts of snow. Roads are closed, tress have fallen down everywhere, and power is out throughout the city (including our house). Really, it’s depressing to see this much snow this early in September. Of course, sitting in my house with no heat, I assumed it would be a challenge to find a happy moment today. But, it turns out, playing scrabble with my husband by the fire to stay warm is definitely a happy moment!
Day 67 – September 11, 2014: I spent today doing data collection and statistical analysis for a project I am working on. I am not passionate about numbers, and find this type of work rather painful. Needless to say, this meant I was extra happy today when my husband brought home my favourite flowers.
Day 68 – September 12, 2014: Today wasn’t an overly happy day, in fact I literally only took 1 photo all day because I was grouchy and didn’t bother bringing my camera with me. So, I had a happy moment with a cream cheese pumpkin muffin at Starbucks, but I didn’t have my camera. Thankfully, I was in a better mood and remembered my camera when we went to dinner with some great friends. I took this photo to show a happy evening with friends. Lebanese anyone?
Day 69 – September 13, 2014: Finally, it wasn’t too hot or too rainy or to snowy for an evening walk with husband and dog. Being that she’s a 90lbs black furball, too hot is never a good thing. And, being that she’s a princess, rain is about the only time she prefers to stay inside. And, being that I hate snow in September, it’s about the only time I prefer to stay indoors. I’m now reminded of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and while I feel the need to go eat some porridge, I also feel the need to say – today was just right! We had a wonderfully happy family walk together – my husband enjoying the beautiful crisp fall air and his ability to walk more these days, our dog’s tail wagging the entire time and me snapping fun and happy photos along the way. P.S. I love that this path is just a few minutes away from my house!
Day 70 – September 14, 2014: Holy Batman, these are gluten-free blueberry muffins are amazing, and it’s not often I say that about gluten-free food! Even my husband enjoyed them and went back for seconds! Thanks to Mama et Maman for sharing this recipe and inspiring today’s photo worthy happy (and delicious) moment!
Wishing everyone a great week filled with happy moments!
