If There Were More Skulls, Maybe The World Would Be A Happier Place

November 27, 2012

Someone's excited for her treat! #woof

Lately, I’ve been trying to focus on happiness.

On a semi-related note, this past weekend I cried in a grocery store.

Then a bagging boy, possibly realizing I was crying, came up to help me with a jar of tomato sauce that wouldn’t ring up and rather than make me go back and find the price gave it to me for $2.99.

Though I didn’t go back to find the real price, that it’s obviously far cheaper than its marked.

And that’s my story about how you should probably cry at grocery stores more because it leads to all sorts of financial windfalls.

(Sure, today it’s tomato sauce, maybe tomorrow it’ll be face moisturizer.)

So aside from the obvious benefits of public crying, these are a few things that are currently making me happy.

Can you tell my #ProjectLife is a wee bit behind the times?

I’m actually working on my Project Life album.

(I know, right?)

And while I’m still so far behind I don’t even know how far behind I am, it’s progress.

Now if only I stopped being lazy long enough to photograph said album, I could share said progress with you.

Oh, baggage carousel, how you taunt me with your emptiness.

I’ve decided to go back and reread all of Agatha Christie’s Poirot mysteries.

Which has the upside of having not read them since I was a child, so it’s kinda like I’m just first reading them.

Plus, the first one has a skull on the cover.

And you all know my love of skulls.

Last drive-in of 2012!

I went to my last drive-in of the year.

Which is partially sad, as I do so love the drive-in and will have to wait a whole season before it returns.

But it was partially freezing, so I’m ready to settle indoors for movie watching with no hypothermia risk.

My first ever French-style green beans. Wish me luck!

I was recently gifted with two green bean frenchers.

(One of which was Grammy’s, which I love.)

So, anyone available for a green bean frenching party?

‘Cause I’ve heard those things can get wild.

Even the saddest nights are improved by a game of cards.

I’ve recently rediscovered my love of playing cards.

So, if you’d like to add a wild game of Spades to our frenching night, I’m all in.

(Get it, all in?)

(‘Cause it’s a card reference?)

(Oh, you get it.)

That poor chicken never really stood a chance.

Molly the dog recently re-entered my life for yet another week of adorable pet-sitting.

I gave her that chicken for Thanksgiving.

She quickly destroyed it, adorably.

(Side note: Isn’t she adorable?)

I confess, I totally buy things to make me happy. This thing? Succeeded.

Finally, my most recent happiness discovery is this print I bought myself off of Etsy.

And no matter how many times I look at it,  there have been no diminishing returns on happiness.

Now that’s quality self-gift-giving.

If I do say so myself.

What’s making you happy these days?

I’m dying to know,
