100 Things That Make Me Happy: Part 6

I'm doing a series of posts of things that make me happy. To see other posts in this series please click here. And without further ado, and in no particular order I continue!

#26. Getting some quality horse time in. I know I've already mentioned horses in this series, but I mentioned them in general. And it's my blog, and I can do whatever I want. So there. *ahem* Moving on. Last week I spent about two hours grooming my grandparents horses, one of them being mine. They weren't looking overly wonderful - shedding their winter coats, mud-caked, foxtails, and their manes in dreadlocks. Okay, it was just mine that had the real dreadlocks. I used all the tools I could find, and spent wonderful quality time with the three mares. It was a beautiful spring morning, and the only issue I had was that the wind seemed hell-bent on me eating the horse hair being shed. And of course, I snapped a few pictures.....

#27. Windows-being-open-weather. You know the perfect weather I'm referring to. The kind of weather that's not too warm, nor too cold. You can have your windows open all day, and your house can be aired out after a winter of being cooped up. Maybe a slight breeze to help move the air around.

#28. Being complimented on your coffee making skills when you don't drink coffee. I can't stand coffee in any form. Walking into a Starbucks is an assault on my nose. However, one of our vets pretty much needs coffee on an IV drip. When he comes over to the Sticksville clinic for the day, or even when work with him on his Saturday, he likes coffee available. So if I know he's coming to the satellite clinic, I make at least a half a pot for him, and when I tell him he gets all happy (weirdo). And anymore, if it's a Saturday, he'll come up and ask, "Would you please make some coffee? You make good coffee." I always look at him like he's insane, because he is for thinking such things. I know I probably make it on the strong side, but I think that's what keeps him functioning.

#29. Texting my mom. We text on a daily basis, and sometimes I end up laughing my ass off so hard, I'd fall down if I wasn't already sitting somewhere. Can definitely brighten a day.

#30. Cuddling with Miss Harriet. There's nothing like being curled up on the couch on a cool day, watching a movie or reading a book, with a purring kitty curled up on my lap. Or stretched out by my side, purring away, and her whiskers tickling me.


  1. You're pretty much living the dream of so many girls by owning your own horse lol!

    1. I know! lol I just wish I could ride nowadays! lol

  2. kitty cuddles make me happy too.

Lovely blog...good luck with the rest of the year and I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
