Three Things Thursday: Goats, Trees, & Desserts



Welcome back to Three Things Thursday, a way to fill your blogs and social media with the happy!


Three Things Thursday is a simple concept that everyone is encouraged to play along with. All it requires is listing three (or more!) things that are making your life awesome. Please note! The three things you choose each week do not need to be big, huge, mighty, impressive things. In fact, I think it’s much better to focus on smaller, sillier things…because focusing on those little bits of joy and the gigglesnorts that they bring…well, that’s where day-to-day contentment lives, I believe.


So, how do you participate? Easy as falling off a log! Whip up a blog post about three things that are making you smile…then share it on the link up in this post. Don’t want to do a whole blog post? Feel free to post some pictures on Facebook or Instagram! If you tag me in your pictures, I 100% promise to give them appropriate love.❤


Just one more thing! Three Things Thursday posts actually don’t need to be done on Thursdays! I leave the link up active for the whole week every week…so you can be grateful on your own schedule.🙂


Okay, here we goooooo…




I love it when our neighbor’s goats come to visit our yard…especially when they act super-silly with their trying to climb up poles and giving me “whadd’re you lookin’ at” stares. 😀

I’m not super comfortable with the notion of Spring already being here, but I sure am loving all of the pretties on our little pear trees. 🙂

John and I went out to a new (to us) restaurant last Saturday, and I was quite enchanted with their tiny little bucket desserts! (Totally got to keep the bucket!)

I haven’t given you a picture of any of the awesome shelter floofs recently, so I thought it was time I do that. For reasons unknown, there is a stroller in the room where the kitties are…well, this particular fluffbutt thinks hanging out in the bottom of that stroller is the funnest thing ever…and that amuses me endlessly! (Also, she’s the sweetest, snuggliest little thing!)

    I wonder if you could persuade them to use bigger buckets!?!

      Seriously! With the layers of peanut butter and chocolate mousse hiding under that whipped cream, I could have probably knocked out a livestock feed bucket of that dessert. 😀

    I second Snail, those buckets should be like the 5 gallon ones you buy from Home Depot! 3 gallons of apple crisp and 2 gallons of cinnamon ice cream on top! 😀

      Ohhhh, that sounds yummy! (Now I’m pondering adding my crock pot apple crisp to next week’s line-up of cooking.) 🙂
