Sunday we had lots of heavy wet snow and I figured that my neighbor behind me (shared driveway) would be wanting to get out to go to church so I cleared away the mess from the plow at the end of the driveway so her little red VW Beetle could make it out without getting stuck. She kindly rewarded me with a carton of fresh strawberries and this very yummy chocolate dipping sauce. This kind gesture made me very happy!
As I was taking this photo I realized that many of the things that make me happy are food related and I'm not sure what to think about that. I confess, I'm a person who lives to eat rather than one who eats to live. My Girl Scout cookies came in this week and I bought some of my favorites - Thin Mints and Trefoils. They are already snugged away in the freezer waiting for a cup of afternoon coffee. I like mine cold rather than room temperature. Plus I think I eat less when they're cold! LOL
The final happy is not one I have a photo of because it's sound related. On our morning walks this week, I've been amazed at the loud chorus of birdsong that has regularly been heard. That joyful chorus signals spring to me and if the woodpeckers are out and knocking for bugs and cardinals and others are singing happy songs, spring can't be far behind. Someone told me they saw 3 robins this week so that's a hopeful sign too.
