Happy Things:

Being part of the Downtown Des Moines Farmer's market - utterly full of amazing food, people, and loads of fun. I'm so delighted we have such a fun, vibrant and exciting market here!

My new sparkly hula hoops. :) (this little mini-pictorial of my hobbies amuses me greatly).

The mini-herb garden located 1 foot outside my kitchen door. I have no idea how people cook without loads of fresh herbs nearby. Here we have 2 kinds of thyme, 2 nasturtiums, rosemary, basil, cilantro, marjoram and parsley. More thyme, sage, oregano, lemon balm, mint, fennel and some others I am forgetting are planted just a few feet away.

And these gorgeous birthday flowers I got from my wonderful, sweet, generous friend Amy! Aren't they beautiful?

Also not pictured, the "new" bike I got, and, the fact that I can now run 3 miles without dying. Now, if only I could master the pullup bar and a handstand...when I can do those things I will be a VERY happy girl.....
