Share the Joy: Birthday Margaritas



This is my birthday week, 
so in my haste to go partying with friends
and drink my annual Margarita



I totally forgot to hit publish on the post.

Things are cooking in my life
and I have two families interested in the house,
so perhaps I'll have an offer in hand soon.
That, my friends, would indeed be a cause 
for a joyful celebration.

Share the Joy -- Internet Woes



Sorry this post is later than usual.
We had a total internet outage,
apparently due to a tow truck taking out 
the main cable line from Seattle to points west.

No internet.
No phone service.

It was like going back to the old days.

Harraumph!

We're back to normal now, thank goodness.

I guess that's cause for joy.

Share the Joy: Small Servings of Joy



Nothing big to report.
Joy comes in small packages. . . . 


The unfolding of a perfect ranunculus.



A private place to curl up with a good book (old-fashioned or Kindle)
or take a nap with sweet dreams.


The bright glow of a super moon.



A cup of gelato on a hot day
(particularly if you're watching gondolas glide along the Grand Canal).

Share the Joy






Little sparks of joy!

Beautiful parks with charming statues.



A working waterfront with paved walking and bike trails.


The best little non-profit indie theater in the whole wide world.


Sweet red peppers stuffed with hot, gooey goat cheese.



Cute little aprons that make me think about cooking.

Share the Joy: Fresh Peaches and Frolicking Puppies



The puppy love continues unabated.


This housebreaking thing is working like a charm. 
She rarely has an accident in the house
and she only used puppy pads the first day.

I will report that Nugget is now Oreo.
The adult children renamed her
and I acquiesced because she's one smart cookie.
(By the way, my estimate of 4 pounds was far too generous --
she weighs in a 2.5 pounds).

Besides puppies, what's bringing me joy?
The smell of ripe peaches in the grocery store 
and at farmer's market.


There's a brown paper bag on the kitchen counter 
holding a fragrant pair
just waiting to be devoured.

Yum!

Share the Joy: Laughter



This week I have been the repository
of abundant laughter.

There is a new princess in my life.


She's about 10 weeks old and her name is Nugget
(unless I change my mind).
Her antics constantly have me laughing. . . . 
though I must say,
my feline King and Queen
are not so amused at the little court jester.
She weighs about 4 pounds and is about a quarter of their size,
but her boundless energy seems to be a bit intimidating.

As for me, I'm smitten with how fast she's catching on to everything,
including going potty as soon as she has a chance to sniff the grass
at the appointed spot. And she's only been with me for 2 days.

Anyone want to guess how long it will be before
Purrsnickety will let her nap with him?

Share the Joy: Relief!


I hate to be so pedestrian,
but this week my biggest cause for joy
is the cessation of pain from
a nasty ear infection that was 
resistant to sulfa and amoxicillin.
I finally got the right antibiotic
and after 4 more Aleve and Tylenol-filled days,
the pain's finally gone.
I'm smiling again.
