Five Happy Things


I am sort of stealing this idea from Jenn. After the grumpy posts, it is time to share five things that made me happy (in no particular order) today:
1. Thinking about visiting the cabin pictured above. Middle of nowhere Michigan. A small lake. Lots of forests. Some books.
2. 10 more days until school is out for the summer. Thing One is really ready to be home for a while and Thing Two and I are really ready to have her here. We probably should do something more than lie in the sun and read all summer long, but I think she and I share that fantasy.
3. Thing Two and his cousin actually played together today, rather than shrieking "no, no, mine!" for 10 hours.
4. Chocolate ice cream.
5. "Lost" is on tonight.

Oh my word the cabin looks like bliss. Beautiful

And I miss Lost so much!! We have to pay for the channels to see it now - haven't been able to catch up since the end of series 2. :(

You really need these after your week!
That summer idea you secretly have in your head is perfect for me too!

I am so sorry to hear about your finger! Yikes . . .
My husband's family has a cabin on a lake in Michigan . . . your photo is especially soothing to look at . . .

Oh hooray! A delightful new blog to read! Love your Etsy store too. You have so many enchanting items in there.

I love the cabin photo. What a wonderful place that must be to visit. Will you get to go soon? Middle of nowhere... small lake... lots of forests... some books... that's MY kind of place!

Cheers,

Karen Beth :)

Thanks Karen Beth! Your photo reminds me that I really need to get a photo of myself on here, because it is a nice way to recognize people.

Yes, we go to the cabin every year in August. Can't wait!

I agree with item #2-I'm looking forward to having my oldest around more often. Of course, I may recant 1 week into vacation...

Oh Maia, me too! I have a week of camp strategically scheduled at the end of June, just about the time she and her brother will be ready to sell one another to the gypsies!

I thought for sure they were going to kill Charlie off the other night. I am going to be VERY unhappy if he goes.
