The little things

Things that made me smile these last few days.
I made this.  From scratch.  [yep, crust too].  Rhubarb pie.  yum.


So I text all my "peeps" Sunday night . . . and I got three.  Meaning three "takers" on my pie offer.   M, M & E [my two nieces and nephew].  So happy they drove from almost Anthem Flagstaff to visit!

Sorry the Pita kicked your little booty M.

And M2 was busy texting me while I was in the other room.


Loved this quote from "date night".

And believe it or not . . . .

It actually rained.  Seriously.  rain.  finally.  rain.

** By all means, marry. If you get a good wife husband, you'll become happy; if youget a bad one, you'll become a philosopher.  - Socrates


I always loved Socrates.

What is making your day "happy" today?

What a yummy-looking pie!

Looks like it's going to rain here too, which will make me VERY happy if it kills some of this humidity!

That pie looks fabulous!

From scratch?! Nice. Good thing you run all those miles so you can eat yummies like this guilt-free!

I'm happy that I have a job that I will be happy to leave in about 30 minutes to go take a run that will most likely happily result in my running in the rain...and maybe a corn field or two! ;-)

Jeff - DangleTheCarrot said...

I am happy that my wife did the laundry that I forgot to do b/c my bike shorts were in there and if she had not done the laundry I would have had to wear dirty bike shorts and they really stunk! Oh and now I want pie, like really bad!

My Starbucks cold To-Go cup makes me happy when it keeps my drink cool foreva and eva - AND it doesn't sweat all over my desk/papers/etc.

It's all about the little things...

It would make me happy if you'd text ME about pie next time, lol!
Peach season is making me happy. SO juicy and good!

You must make good pie if people come from miles around to try it.

Meg said...

Mmmmmmm, I *heart* a homemade pie! I can smell it from here!!

Evolv Rose said...

Mmmm... I want some pie now. :) My happy moment was just looking at a picture of the slice w/ ice cream heaped on top and imagining it was mine.
