Blooming inside, smiling dogs and happiness

- Beauty at the reception desk at the printing company.  The owner, a lovely lady, cut a few blooms from her Japanese Cherry tree from her yard and brought them in to share. 

- Smiling dogs at the park near work.  They all seem so happy to be walking outdoors - some even trotting alongside their bicycling people (kept close by leashes.) 

- Ignoring the pollen and getting outside to walk myself this week.  This afternoon will be the third after work walk of the week.  It's like taking a happiness drug; somehow the indoor exercise video is just not quite the same. 

Something else that makes me happy:  it's the weekend!  Woo hoo!  I hope you enjoy yours and that good things come your way.

The printing company my son works for does not have as lovely a reception area.

I must get outside to play with Slim more. She does indeed smile when I throw the ball for her.

If you come here there is lots of room to walk, plus you can pick up sticks and rocks to help me get read to mow:)

Cherry blossom always makes me smile. Yes, to the great outdoors - and have a wonderful weekend.

So, the pollen is an issue for you, too. I been using the exercise machine and agree, it's not nearly as good as a walk in my neighborhood. On the other hand, I can breathe. I get so stopped up outside, I'm miserable. For once I'm actually wishing for more rain:~)

But, this the place to complain. It's the place to think of three good things. Happy dogs definitely is high on the list as is happy cats, getting on the porch more often.

Flowers are always a way to me sigh with happiness. So, I end on a good note. Have a great weekend.

Granny Annie -

Too bad - ours is pretty beige, too, but this perked it up.

I'll bet Slim loves that.

I wish you lived closer, I would love to visit.

Hilary -

Love that word "anon" - makes me think of Romeo and Juliet. "I come, anon!"

Snaggle -

They do look delicious!
