10 things that make me happy

  1. its gorgeous. absolutely breathtaking. its in the seventies, humid and the sky is bright blue with giant puffy clouds.  i can almost forget that i'm in chicago and that there's a real possibility that it could be sub-zero again soon.
  2. my new birds. they were really fun to make and people seem to like them. that's nice.
  3. this. it makes me laugh.
  4. the cookies i made yesterday. so delicious.
  5. wallaby bartlett pear yogurt - who knew?
  6. this photo.
  7. and looking on the bright side of my sewing machine being busted - i'm getting all those patterns that i was dreading cutting cut.
  8. also, i'm learning what i don't want in a new sewing machine. and that's a good thing.
  9. the new kristin hersh.
  10. tomorrow i'm taking a mental health day (and going to the dr.)
