Happiness Is...

Fruit Salad. And the promise that sweeter fruit, home-grown fruit! is on the horizon.

Sunny, periwinkle skies juxtaposed with the stark beauty of naked trees.

Kooky Asian toys from the busboy at the Chinese restaurant.

(Oh, and hot and sour soup.)

Mickey Mouse (circa 1930s and '40s) videos on Youtube. No dialog, just pure silliness. I have never, ever heard Calvin giggle more raucously at a show.

I'm off to drink a cup of my new favorite tea, blow my nose a couple hundred more times, read the surprise magazine Cute Maintenance Boy picked up for me today, and hit the sack early. I have an inkling I had best get rested up...


  1. I'll have to check out the mickey videos I used to love watching those!
    Sounds like you have a cold... Feel better soon
    Life with # 3 will keep you busier for sure!! : )
    That salad looks divine can't wait for all the fresh fruit!!

  2. Love the kooky Asian toys - and hot & sour is my fave, too!

  3. Fruit looks DE-LI-CIOUS! Enjoy your tea. I've tried and tried to enjoy tea... and just can't seem to get there.

  4. Love your happiness things...that fruit salad looks soo yummy!

  5. I LOVE those toys. They are really cool. PS. If only I could see you before you depart, I have 2 mags for you...but then again, you'd have to lug them back with you because I haven't had the chance to read them yet. PSS. I bought a pineapple the other night (amongst many other fruit) and it was SO good!

  6. Those kids of yours get me every time! My babies are in love with Tom & Jerry & the Bugs Bunny collection latey! It cracks me up, but now they call all cats - pussy kittens - oh my!!

  7. You better be rested girl. Change is comin' your way;) Loved your happiness pics. Those peaches made my mouth water.

  8. Those little toys are adorable! I kinda want that little duck for myself :)

  9. I like the happiness :) Love the toys too.

  10. Hope you feel better soon... my favorite tea right now is Licorice spice... stash... ;)
    that fruit salad is making me drool!
    and my kids would love those funny little toys!
    Just Jenn~

  11. Happiness is....

    -My daughter picking out only the pink Legos from the Lego box

    -My hand wrapped around my favorite mug with steaming hot coffee in it

    -A chat with a dear friend that started out only to tell her one quick thing, and ended 45 minutes later

  12. The fruit looks good. Was it good? I just bought the most beautiful strawberries and blueberries, and sadly, their beauty was deceiving. Hope you fared better.
    p.s. I love the word juxtaposed.
