Yeah, I’m so happy! Well, I’m happy NBC’s series Grimm, my guilty pleasure, is back with new episodes. I’m pissed the Grey’s Anatomy writers manage to kill half the characters every single season. Seriously, this would never, ever happen in real life. There, I’ve said my peace.
Excuse me for digressing a minute. Back to the photo challenge. After WordPress picked “mine” as their photo challenge theme for last week, I almost lost faith in their staff’s creativity. Obviously the people working there don’t have kids and aren’t fed up hearing “mine, mine, miiiiiiiine” 20 times a day.
So I’m very happy with this week’s photo challenge theme being happy, because happy is a simple, yet beautiful word and feeling. Even though life can throw you lemon after lemon, the human spirit can survive and thrive. Let me share the different ways I’m happy for myself and for my kids. And no, I won’t use the new fancy WordPress photo galleries today, as the WP staff requested me to. My DSL connection is working fine right now and I have no intention of jinxing it by diddling around with the new feature today. But sure, it looks cool.
I’m super happy to have worked hard enough on my new photography website to finally launch it this week.
I’m very happy when my six-year old gives me some type of love art every week. By now he’s a pro at drawing and cutting paper heart shapes. He really is a sweetheart.
I’m happy when my kids and I play with our food and make food art, in this case a reindeer out of grapes. Yes, I’m teaching my kids to play with their food, and I’m perfectly happy with the idea because it gives them a burst of creativity.
I’m happy when I get attacked by a ferocious monkey and I somehow manage to survive to tell the tale.
I’m happy when I witness a beautiful sunset and end up taking a decent photo of it with my average cell phone camera.
Finally, I’m happy when the clouds smile at me. Happy Friday, everyone! What makes you happy?
