Well, look at that! The sun is shining – and those catkins say that spring is here! That’s enough to make you happy, for a start, isn’t it?
Now, what can I tell you about this week? Well, how about this: I have at last finished this colourful crocheted afghan made of odds and ends of wool.
Isn’t it fun? Perhaps a tad old-fashioned now, but you see, that’s because I actually started it about three decades ago. Yes. You heard me correctly. This afghan has been thirty years in the making!
I can’t exactly tell you why it took that long, except that it seemed that I could always make it bigger, or I always had a little more yarn to use up, or I just had to finish something else first … but when I began crocheting again for DS No. 2′s expected twins, I just wanted it done, and finished the round I was on and fastened it off, and then sewed in all the ends. And there it is.
Oh, and another thing that made me happy this week is finding these tasty little treats -
Do you have any idea what those little chocolate covered things are? Well, I’ll tell you; they are chocolate covered sunflower seeds! And wow, are they nice!
The larger chocolate covered things are almonds which are also rather lovely, but a tad disappointing because they were sold as ‘cocoa dusted almonds’ and they’re not. They’re chocolate covered, and then cocoa dusted, which isn’t the same thing at all. I’m not about to take them back though. Would you? I mean, really?

and write your own little ‘How to be HAPPY!’ post, telling us about something which warmed your heart or lifted your spirits this week, then link back here.
You see, it’s my belief that the things that make us happy people or unhappy people are not the big events, but the accumulation of little things. You just have to develop the habit of noticing them.
