What's Making Me Happy Today

Puttering in my sewing room early in the morning while the house sleeps.

With thoughts of spending my day on more of this, with my day kids. And as we wander through town making the tough decisions between the yellow, red or blue slides, I'll be gazing toward the edges of town where the corn stands tall, and the combined wheat fields gift us with the smells of fresh, sunny straw. I'll imagine my mom as a young girl, re-stuffing her burlap mattress, and snuggling down at night on her harvest scented bed.

Did I mention that I'm sipping coffee, while I'm all alone, just dreaming and pottering about?

It's not at all hard to be happy, so far today.

And one more thing. I was at a "nay frien". (sewing circle) on Friday where I learned how to make zippy pouches. (my mother should be so proud...)

I inadvertently sold one on my bags4darfur blog! Not that they're not for sale. I just hadn't gotten around to marketing them. Just like I haven't gotten around to marketing anything over there in ages.

So, that makes me pretty happy.

What's making you happy today?
