The Happy List

Have you found Kate at Fox's Lane yet? Such a gorgeous blog. She's also incredibly positive in the face of pretty dire agricultural conditions right now. Kate and her partner run an organic farm in Daylesford and the rain has just about washed them out. And now the locusts seem to be moving in.

And yet, she's running a "what makes me happy" list, because she's an awesome Pollyanna, and so I'm joining in too. 

In no particular order, here's what's making me happy:

:: baking, particularly Christmas baking.

(Recipe and more on these yummo cookies tomorrow.)

:: finishing some Christmas gift sewing, with another project on the table tonight.

:: The lights and the decorations and the tree

:: progress! (ref. yesterday's post)

:: Also – experimenting with a wicked 'cheesecake for one' idea. Not sure my microwave plan is all that genius although it tastes OK. Another couple of goes then I'll share it!!

Hope you're happy too. Or that at least in the face of a tough old week you can pinpoint a couple of things that make you feel good. The process of actually thinking about this was all the therapy I needed today. Thanks Kate.

Yay for you! Look at that table- no clutter- great job! Plus I looked in the background in a few of the other photos and it all looked extremely tidy too! Wow! Hope you aren’t feeling so overwhelmed with it all anymore 🙂

Baby tummy! Beautiful beautiful! Made me think I should photograph my toddler’s tummy which I love to tickle. Your home looks like a sanctuary of calm and happy, and your photos are so lovely to look at.
