In honor of The Next Chapter's ongoing work in The Happy Book, I've been taking some today to reflect on what is making me happy. It's great to focus on what is going right since we sometimes get bogged down in what is going wrong.
I've had a bad cold for just over a week now, so unfortunately I won't be saying I'm happy about my health. Hopefully next week I can make that claim.
This week my garden is making me happy. The kiwis completely covered their trellis, so I added two more to give them space to expand. The raspberries seeded themselves to grow three new stalks. The cucumbers, zucchinis, and tomatoes are getting taller and fatter. I can't wait to eat the fresh produce later this summer.
I also introduced a new addition to my garden, a serene little fairy who looks quite comfortable tucked in the green vines of kiwi. Meet Maribel and her little bird friend, Pete.
