On a happier note…. (be excited)

(Before I begin. I love how the addition to the URL of this post is on-a-happier-note-be-excited.)

As I commence, let me first express that I am rather ashamed and disappointed that I am blogging on a Friday night. Of course, it is a wise use of time seeing as I have nothing else to do….no places to go, no people to see, nada.

However! Since I just posted about a negative-seeming subject, I figured that I should write about something positive this time. And that will be as follows:

My Favorite Things

  1. Raindrops on roses
  2. Whiskers on kittens
  3. Bright copper kettles
  4. Warm woolen mittens

Okay. I’m just kidding about that part. Although I generally do like those things, I’m pretty sure that’s plagiarism of whoever wrote that song. (If you don’t know that song….you are deprived! Go watch the Sound of Music right this minute!) Okay for real now; the revised version:

A Few Things That Make Me Happy

I like this song. Watch it (That was just a suggestion, not a demand. I promise.)
