*three things that make me smile: an exercise in gratitude – feel free to steal this idea with wild abandon and fill your blog with the happy*
Inspired by Emily of Nerd in the Brain here are my Three Things Thursday.
First, looking on the bright side. Having aging dogs means that most nights/early mornings I am roused out of bed to let one or other of them out in the garden. It’s not particularly enjoyable, but it does mean that I get to see the beauty of early morning skies… and sometimes I’m awake enough to photograph them.
Second, the first pea shoots. Lots of seeds have germinated in pots in the limery, but it’s always exciting to see the first shoots appearing from seeds planted outdoors. Hopefully, these peas will soon be climbing up Mr Snail’s pea obelisk (slugs permitting).
Third, yarn play. The sisterhood sketchbook has given me an excuse to play around with making some pretty things for no other reason than they look nice. The mandala below ended up being too big, but I’m sure I’ll find something else to do with it.
So, those are three things making me smile and for which I am grateful this week – what about you?
