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…
Before I get started with the picture portion of our program, I just want to say that I’ve been having a pretty amazing week! It hasn’t been free of frustrations (all sorts of blog problems, for example), but it has had an exceptional number of happy moments (an ice cream picnic at the lake with my husband, an Arts Council breakfast complete with Alice in Wonderland characters, and more salsa than you can shake a stick at…just to name a few). So, why don’t I post them all here? Well, because I put a lot of pictures on Instagram, too…and I don’t want to bore or annoy people by sharing the same stuff in multiple places. (Is that a thing people get bored or annoyed by? I don’t really know.) 🙂 Okay, onward with the gratitude and smiles!
Just last night, John and I went on a “Full Moon Hike” at our favorite park. I put that in parentheses because the moon never actually made an appearance until the hike was finished and we were driving home. 😉 So, really, it was a Starlight Hike. We may not have seen the moon, but we did see tons of fabulous stuff! Fireflies were out in force in some areas, so we were treated to quite the display! Then there was what I can only assume was a meteorite…it was lower and brighter than a meteor (shooting star) and flashed across the sky for far longer than a shooting star before disappearing over the horizon. Super nifty! There were also toads and rabbits and owls and a water snake and just all sorts of spiffy things to see and hear. Due to the whole “walking in the dark” thing, I didn’t get many pictures, but I did snap this fuzzy one of the view of the campsites from the dam we were walking across. 🙂
I was doing some knitting the other day, and the ball of yarn I was working with was doing some of the most intriguing and visually pleasing things! I just love yarn, y’all. Love it!
When John and I popped into the grocery store to gather picnic supplies, we were treated to this magnificent bit of awesome. Yes, that is an older gentlemen unapologetically wearing a super-shiny, iridescent silver backpack. So, so much yes to that! 😀
