Happiness


It's International Happiness Day!
What's bringing big smiles to your little part of the world?

No, we don't actually have daffodils, yet.  (The picture is from last year.)
But a warm wind is blowing and pretty flowers will soon follow.

    1. Me too, Teresa. They will be here before we know it, but might have to endure a bit more cold weather, first. Temps are supposed to drop again this weekend.

  3. Since our weather was so nice, we had
    dinner on the deck and that makes me
    happy.

    I did a "happy" post too.

  4. I didn't even know that it was International Happiness Day. Your picture made me happy with the pretty daffodils and cheery colors. I also enjoyed reading the things making you happy today.
    I just finished giving my grandson a bath. That definitely made me happy and so did our beautiful weather on this first day of Spring.

    1. First day of spring (or autumn if one is in the southern hemisphere) is the perfect time to have Happiness day! You are so lucky!! I can't wait to hold our Grandbaby and spend time with him/her.

    1. I do believe that for Texas! And I hope you'll take lots of pictures of those wildflowers to share with us.

    1. I think it would be fine to celebrate this any (every) day of the year. :-)

  9. We are covered in daffodils - they are always such a welcome sight with their promise of warmer days to come. Yours look particularly bright and healthy.
    I didn't know there was in International Happiness Day - what a lovely idea!

  11. Was it really International Happiness Day (in which case I missed it too!) or is this your way of celebrating the First Day of Spring, which was also 20th March - and in fact that did actually make me very happy! :) xCathy

    1. Yes, it truly was. :-) It also happened to be the first day of spring/autumn, depending on which hemisphere you live in.

  12. No daffodils here, but I did plant tulips last fall, and they were up about 2 inches, and the deer came and ate them! :-(

    1. They must have been hungry. Several years ago I had pink tulips in my front yard, and there was this little girl that would pick them and give them to her mother when they took their walk down the street. At the time I was not happy about it and sat there grumbling to myself. But looking back, it was actually kinda sweet, and I'm glad I've lived long enough to put it all into perspective.

  13. Well happiness day has been and gone and I didn't even know about it. However, the rain that has started to fall in earnest at last makes me happy. We had the driest summer for 27 years my garden almost shrivelled into oblivion but now the rain is falling. I am happy about that.

    1. I think rain is a pretty good thing to feel happy about. :-) Hope your garden bounces back.

  14. Love daffodils! They are in full bloom all over the place here in the NW! The weather was warm and sunny last week, but we have gone back to rain and having fires in our woodstove. It's fine as I know spring is not too far away.
    Happiness...that's so perfect.

    1. I always envy your growing season that arrives sooner than ours. Warm winds have continued to blow through here, and we finally have daffodils of our own! And our first tornado watch of the season, too. Nothing came of that one, though.

  15. What a cheerful post! I share your list of happy things! Except the 'soon to be born grandchild' (congrats BTW!)... I'll change that one to my nieces and nephews - they bring me happiness everyday!

    1. Thank you, Rosemary! Yes, nieces and nephews should have been included on my list of happy things, too. :-)
