Five things to be happy about {five things friday: link-up #20}

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”― W.B. Yeats

Rain on rain on rain, plump pumpkins, long overdue visits with best friends and exploring just a handful of the many hidden wonders of our beautiful city… this was another perfect week with so many things to be happy about!

Wishing you a beautiful week and a very happy Five Things Friday!

Here are this week’s five things at random from Barbara Ann Kipfer’s book, 14,000 Things to be Happy About, plus a five-photo-roundup of things that made me smile this week. Read on for the link-up rules and info.

Five things to be happy about:

  • Japanese lanterns strung between trees, gently lighting the lawn
  • lamb’s wool and angora
  • pastel colors
  • chubby cows eating contentedly on the grass
  • putting on heavy ski socks and a warm bath robe

  1. I forgot to post today! But your post is wonderful. It looks like fall has really settled in where you are. Fall here in the Denver area has been a beautiful summer. Ha ha. It was 85 and gorgeous yesterday, yet ski resorts are making snow and one has already opened in the mountains! I’m taking full advantage of the gorgeous weather!
