#100HappyDays Continued – Days 129 – 135
Another week of photos for your viewing pleasure. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed each moment.
Day 129 – November 12, 2014: I broke my favourite boots today (See Day 83 for what is now a memorial image) – the zipper pull tab literally snapped in half. (I suspect I can get them fixed, but that’s not the point when all you need in the moment is your favourite boots to keep your feet dry and warm). I overcame my grief when I remembered that I bought Uggs last year that I put away for the summer. So, my happy moment was warm and comfortable toes!
Day 130 – November 13, 2014: My happiest moment of today was not photographable – we spent another evening volunteering at a local homeless shelter. As the weather here is frightening (-16C / 3F), the shelters are all at capacity so it was a particularly good night to be volunteering. But, as I could not bring my good camera to the shelter, my second happiest moment of the day will have to suffice for today’s photo – finishing making venison sausage with Mr. MPB. We’ve been very busy turning the venison into ground venison and sausages, so this moment of happiness occurred at about 11:30pm when we started turning the final batch of ground venison into sausages. Seeing the end in sight was pretty awesome!
Day 131 – November 14, 2014: Today’s happy moment came when Mr. MPB left for the weekend on another hunting adventure…to kick off my solo weekend, I went straight upstairs and had a lovely hot bath with a giant glass of red wine, a book, some good music and a couple rounds of Candy Crush.
Day 132 – November 15, 2014: Today I met with an amazing women who shared her family’s adoption experience with me. I felt so hopeful, knowledgeable and excited talking with her. Yet, I didn’t quite feel comfortable asking to take a random happy day photo with someone I just met who invited me into her home with her young children – I didn’t want to turn myself into some sort of creeper. So, instead I took a photo of my new boots that I were worn for the very first time when I went to meet her. (As an added happy bonus, I was able to solve Day 129’s boot tragedy with this new pair).
Day 133 – November 16, 2014: On my way home from visiting with a great friend and her new adorable rescue dog, I looked out the car window and saw this sunset in progress. How could I not be happy?
Day 134 – November 17, 2014: My grandma makes the most amazing ginger snap cookies, and she knows I love them. So every now and again she gives me an ice cream pail full of cookies. I have absolutely no self-control when it comes to having them in our house. So, at my request, Mr. MPB took the pail and hid them from me a few days ago. We both laughed when I exclaimed with the pure excitement of a five year old on Christmas morning, “I found the bucket of cookies!!” Finding them was definitely my happy moment, although the excitement was short lived as while I finally found them, I cannot reach them.
Day 135 – November 18, 2014: Salted carmel gelato and red wine. An unexpected combination that may not be repeated anytime soon, but it still made me happy.
Wishing everyone splendid happy moments!
