Sunshine and Yellow make me Happy

It is a beautiful day today. I love seeing the sunshine. I need to see the sunshine. I am so ready for spring. I love the anticipation of flowers blooming and new buds bursting forth from the trees as they appear dead but are only sleeping. New life emerges. The birds start tweeting and pitter patting around. It makes me happy just thinking about it. I am looking forward to spring, being outside with the Man of my Dreams (aka MOMD)! There is a creek that runs along the back of the subdivision where I live and on pleasant days we walk back there with a fishing pole, some drinks, snacks, the dog, Emma, whom you met yesterday, and sometimes I bring a book along in case the fish aren't biting my line. It almost feels like we are the only people for miles. When the water is low we can climb out into the middle of the creek to fish while standing on some large bolders. When the water is up I can sit on a fallen tree and listen to the water trickle by through a dammed up area where leaves collect. It makes for a great Day! It's even better when the fish are biting. We always throw them back but it is so exciting when they tug on that line! It makes me happy


to walk to the creek with the MOMD!
It doesn't snow very much here so when it does the world comes to a screeching halt and we head outside to see the small flakes fall and maybe even cover the ground. The peaceful sound the snow makes when it falls is very pleasant and it makes me happy. The MOMD and I walked our trail to see the creek a few weeks ago when it snowed. It was like we were the only people on earth and God blessed us with a beautiful sight just for our pleasure. I don't care for the cold but on occasion when we do get a little snow and it sticks it makes me happy. The people who live north of Alabama will laugh out loud when I say we had snow. It was maybe 1/2" but it was beautiful and it made me happy. The very next week it was 60 degrees outside and sunny but we have the memories of the snow and a few pictures to remind us of the day!
Another thing that makes me happy is my painting of a yellow rose. When it is dreary and cloudy and otherwise yucky outside I can sit in my chair and glance at my painting and smile. I think about how beautiful the rose is when the light shines on it, just so, from the lamp below. I remember that I painted that and how happy I was when I finished it and it was beautiful. It also reminds me that even though today is yucky the sun will come out tomorrow and I will smile and be happy! Spring is just around the corner. What makes you happy? The world and I want to know.
