Why I Love Today...

 The weather is just perfect! 
I am at home playing hookey from work. 
That doesn't mean that I am taking the day off...
in fact,
 I have been enjoying things that...
make me happy! 
Some of those things are...
A red front door
as well as red geraniums
fresh eggs in this years bird nest
a bird bath with fresh water for the mama and daddy birds to drink from
heady smelling roses in my yard
daisies mixed in with sweet smelling star jasmine
these unruly daisies
tamed and standing tall
any type
tools to make my yard look well manicured
and the knowledge of how to properly use them
allowing me to make this....
look like this in a short amount of time,
and when all is said and done,
I can go over to our newly re-installed pedestal sink

and have a cool drink of water from the drinking fountain
then scrub the dirt from my nails
so I can sit and relax,
listening to the birds singing sweet sounds to the wind chimes rhythm,
admiring my handy work, and thinking how lucky,
and happy I am.
 What makes YOU happy?

Looks great!!! I'm always so jealous of your backyard. I think I always took it for granted growing up. Thinking every yard looked as great as ours. Jace & Quinn are going to be so excited to use that drinking fountain!!! I'm glad you enjoyed your day off work!!

Oh my goodness, it makes me happy just LOOKING at your backyard. I thought 'oh i love the red door!' 'oh! I love red geraniums!' but your photos just kept going with amazingness. WHAT kind of rose is that? It's amazing! Your yard looks CRAZY good- I SO can't post my own yard photos now lol. And I'm impressed that you do those yard tools!!

The rose is an Old English rose, Charles Darwin. Very much looks like a peony, smells delish!
