Happiness is a mini-bagel with cream cheese and sweet, dark cherries. . .
. . .washed down with raspberry lemonade. . .
. . .and my favourite tea in the world, Good Earth, in a whale mug (!). . .
. . .all together in a pretty spread to photograph.
Happiness is a quote on the end of my tea bag. . .
. . .and a really good book to read while eating. . .
. . .being careful not to get food on its pretty white pages!
Happiness is the tiny purple pansies blooming just outside the screened-in porch. . .
. . .and a whole bed of them on the deck railing!
Happiness is watching Shadepaw stare at the birds outside. . .
. . .and lick her nose in an adorable way :)
And, of course, happiness is being able to share it all with you, my lovely readers!
Today is the first week-day of summer. In celebration, I cleaned up the small mess left over from the party I hosted last night (it only took ten minutes - best party clean up ever!) and treated myself to a super-relaxing breakfast. I rarely eat breakfast - bad, I know, but I never have time, or at least, that's my excuse - so this was an experience to be documented!
I'm still in my pyjamas, revelling in the fact that I don't have to go to school today, or tomorrow, or the rest of the summer (!) and I feel so relaxed. The past few days have been rushing from one place to another, never stopping, and constantly being surrounded by people. People I love dearly, but all the same, it's somewhat a relief to have some time to myself. The house is quiet - I'm pretty sure my brother is still sleeping - and I can read, eat, and enjoy the gorgeous weather in peace :)
How are you spending your summer? Relaxing? Adventuring? Something in between?
