#100HappyDays Continued – Days 209 – 215

Another week of photos for your viewing pleasure.

I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed each moment.

Day 209 – January 31 2015: So many happy moments today. My day started when I woke up to beautiful snow. Then I discovering our neighbours had shoveled 80% of our sidewalk. Next I enjoyed a delightful afternoon of snuggling with Sadie while watching Dirty Dancing. Then Mr. MPB and I enjoyed a stress-free, wonderful dinner out with friends. Ultimately, the happy photo goes to our cab that allowed us to indulge in a few alcoholic drinks without any worry about driving.

Day 210 – February 1, 2015: At dinner last night I asked the waiter for the cork from our wine for my current do-it-yourself project. Much to my delight he gave me an entire bag full of used corks! So today I was filled with happiness as I was finally able to finish my real cork board. I love it!

Day 211 – February 2, 2015: We are currently selling things around our house that we do not want in order to buy something we do not need but want – a new and rather expensive camera lens. Today, I am happy because thanks to Kijiji we sold a few more of our unwanted things and we are now almost half way to buying my new toy.

Day 212 – February 3, 2015: My happiest moment today was listening to Olaf sing In Summer as I was driving. Unfortunately, I had no way to capture this in a photo because I have no idea how to photograph a song, and secondly it clearly would not have been safe to take a photo while driving. So, instead, my photographable happy moment was when I stopped to buy new shampoo and they gave me free moisturizer. I have no idea if it’s any good, but I do love free stuff.  And, as an added bonus, my super sensitive dry skin is loving this moisturizer!!

Day 213 – February 4, 2015: Today was not a good day. My happiest moment was first thing in the morning when Mr. MPB brought me a homemade chai tea latte and homemade replica Starbucks oat bar.

Day 214 – February 5, 2015: After a nasty fall in the morning, my day consisted of cancelling lunch with a good friend so that I could go get x-rays. Not my idea of fun. But I did find a moment of happiness when Mr. MPB brought me a bowl of blueberries for a snack – a rare winter treat.

Day 215 – February 6, 2015:  This is my idea of a perfect winter day.

  1. Are you aiming for a year of happy moments at this point, or just going until further notice? 🙂 I love it!! I love that cork board too, very cute!! I’m sorry you had such a rough week, hoping that next week is better for you friend!

    • Mr. MPB thinks I should aim for 365 – 1 year of happy moments. I on the other hand am committed to going forward with this until I get bored. Although, I do have to admit that at this point part of me thinks it would be pretty cool to hit 1 full year. 🙂
      Thank you so much Amy! I love my cork board too, and I really hope next week is better to me!! I hope you have a good week too!


  2. Your cork board is fantastic and I know want to move to Canada, just for the pretty money you all have there, lol. So much more colorful than the boring old green we have here! Hope that ankle is starting to feel a little better! xoxo


    • I have always liked our colourful money, but now it’s polymor and feels like plastic and I despise how it feels and it doesn’t fold in half like normal paper money – it’s super weird. 🙂
      The ankle still hurts, but I did manage to do almost a full work out yesterday, so I’m just learning to live with it.
      Wishing you a wonderful week!


  3. Wow! So many surprise treats this week. I love the cork board and how the corks are from a variety of blends (if it were our household accumulated corks, they’d all pretty much be the same). Those Starbucks-like oat bars look good! Your man is so talented. I really like your winter scene- it makes the cold worth it sometimes. Heal up quick my friend. There are many adventures ahead.


    • I don’t remember where Mr. MPB found the starbucks oat bar recipe online, but they really taste identical to the ones sold at the store and as a bonus for some they can be gluten free really easy. I am pretty lucky that he is so talented 🙂
      And yes, those winter scenes make it worth it! Although I felt like a giant imposter taking that photo – I drove to one of my favourit spots to get it since I was unable to walk. Which meant no walk with Sadie and I really only enjoyed beauty for a few moments as I balanced on one leg. 🙂
      Thanks for enjoying my moments with me! Wishing you a wonderful next week as you embark on another adventure!!

  4. Beautiful pictures as always. We seem to be so alike – I just got a new lens and have been selling stuff we don’t need/use etc!!! AND I love free stuff too (who doesn’t, really?) Sorry to hear about your fall – AND I have been reading your blog and one particular post has been stuck in my head so I will aim to comment when I’ve figured out how to say what I want to say. Hopefully the mystery surrounding this makes you feel a little better 😉


    • I always appreciate a good mystery – I hope it stuck in your head for a good reason, it’s been a crazy week so I fear I may have upset you with something I have said. I hope you are doing okay.
      What type of lens did you buy???

      • Ah, don’t worry you didn’t upset me! Just got me thinking but I need to figure out why it’s made me think so much and unfortunately I’ve not had the time to work on it yet.. but I will! 🙂 I ended up getting (hope I’m saying this jargon right) a prime 50mm f1.8. It’s so much sharper and perfect for portrait and my travel shots are less blurred around the edges like with my zoom lens. I love it but now I want more!!! Lol


      • I am touched that I said something to make you think so much. 🙂
        Prime lenses are the way to go, or so I understand. I have no doubt you will have so much fun with that lens and capture so many memorable moments.


Thoughts? I love hearing from you!
