I don't know where I saw that quote but I love it! It's so true! And sadly, yes, I have always identified with Eeyore.
But this post isn't about doom and gloom. This post is about 5 things making me happy today. Just the fact that it's Friday and I survived another work week is happiness enough!
This was a "Winter sucks. I need a present." purchase. I debated about this for months. Years even. I finally had a couple of coupons to use at BJs that justified my purchase. Now I am obsessively ordering and buying K cups from Amazon, Keurig, the local grocery stores, etc. When does the excitement and the obsession wear off?! Let it be known I have not been to Starbucks this week at all. And I do think I may have better control of my coffee drinking habits by drinking one cup at a time. We'll see.
Another Amazon purchase. I am obsessed! I need to stop. But I needed a case of Coconut Cream Pie Lara bars. So yummy! I feel like I am eating some decadent dessert when I eat these. I do enjoy all things coconut.
New reenacting shoes! I am a Revolutionary War reenactor. It's not just a hobby, it becomes your life. I finally have worn out my first pair of 18th century reproduction shoes I bought off of another reenactor. These suckers are expensive! But I couldn't resist the red shoes. I am not fond of dressing as an 18th century woman (I do it mostly for my kid). It's uncomfortable and awkward. Heck, I rarely dress up as a 21st century woman. But if red shoes will help me love it more, red shoes it is!
And lastly, what's better than selfies with your cat?! I think I took this last week. But I absolutely love this picture. Cleo obviously does not care about posing. She's busy comtemplating jumping up on the pipes down here in our basement cave. But it just makes me happy seeing this picture. And happiness is a good thing.
