Happiness Challenge


Hello everybody! So this is a thread I stumbled upon in Kitten's fantastic New Ultimate Guide. Basically, you post one thing (or more! there are no rules!) each day that makes you happy. It's very simple. ;)

Here's the first Challenge, by September:

Mine for today is snowfall. We had some snow a few days ago, and, while it lasted, it was really pretty. It reminded me of the painting The Hunters in the Snow - reds and browns and bluish-grayish-whites.

That we got to play kickball in gym instead of floor hockey! (Please don't ask why, but I'm terrified of floor hockey)

It's December, which means I am officially no longer mad at stores for having their Christmas stuff out!

At school today I collected probably about 25-30 peices of gelt!

I'm going to the opera on Saturday and I just went to the mall and got a floor-length black dress with white roses!!!! Wheeeeee!

I finally found my advent candles! But I only had two purple ones, so I had to find a stray purple candle and now it looks a little weird.  

What opera are you going to see?

How wonderful! Tell us about it next week.

I forgot to put mine for yesterday here, but here it is: My almost-four-month-old puppy and his waggly tail, his inside-out ears and his huge paws.

Today's is we leave today to go to West Virginia- my puppy's first vacation!
