100 Things That Make Me Happy: Part 10

Before I get to today's post, I forgot I need to announce the next sender of postcards for July! This month's sender is Rachel McCool!



#46. This video I found via Yahoo! A senior at Kansas State remade LMFAO's song "Sexy And I Know It" into "Farming And I Grow It". This is seriously the awesomest idea EVER. This kid used his family and their farm for the backdrop of this video. It's comedic but also extremely educational for people that don't farm and don't really realize where their food comes from. I don't care what food you grab off of a shelf, it was grown by a rancher or a farmer in the beginning. It was grown in dirt, in the sunshine and the rain. And hard-working people grew it for you.



#47. Finding farmers like this family here, that have been farming the same land for 7 generations. In this day and age, it's hard to find family farms that are still going strong. Many family farms have fallen over the years because they can no longer afford to stay in business. Farmers like this family take care of their animals because they know that those animals are their livelihood, and want to keep their farm in the family for future generations.



#48. Picnics. Who doesn't love a picnic???? I don't care if you made the food and took it with you or if you grabbed KFC or Subway and headed out. Although sometimes Mother Nature's guests show up uninvited, it's usually a nice way to spend some time with friends or family.




#49. Cold showers on a hot day. Seriously. Best. Thing. Ever. I spent most of today cleaning house. My swamp cooler hasn't been hooked up yet, because up until today, it really hadn't gotten into the 90's (F) yet. And cool breezes helped out, and cool nights too. Hell, just a couple weeks ago, it was still getting into the 30's (F) at night. So, I was sweating like a pig all day. I kept taking little breaks because I'd just get too hot. But after I was done, I took an ice cold shower. Thirty seconds after I turned the water off, I was already too hot. But for the 10 minutes I was in the shower, it was bliss.


#50. Camping. I used to go camping with my parents all the time as a kid. It was fun. Some days I would sit around the campsite and read a book all day. Others I would ride my bike around the campground. We take walks or hikes on nearby trails, play catch, play poker for M & M's (and this is just one reason why I suck at poker lol), and roast marshmallows on the campfire.

  1. omg...that first video is HILARIOUS! I love how they did it :-) And I agree, far too many people take for granted where their food comes from. This puts it into perspective with an interesting twist.

    It's nice to see a big farm operation like the one in the second video that really does well taking care of their stock.

    Camping? LOVE! Though I haven't gone in years. I kinda miss it...even though I don't think I could sleep on the hard ground any more.
