Bliss

It's Friday. The weather, which has been cold and gray and wet for the past few days, has cleared up and today it is sunny and projected to be warmer. Although, actually, I know it makes me weird, but I kind of LIKE Colorado's unpredictable weather (despite what pseudostoops says). Yeah, occasionally it snows when it's technically still summer, but on the other hand in the middle of the winter right after a snowstorm? It is quite possible that it will be sunny and 70 degrees outside. That's my kind of winter right there--snow without the weeks and weeks of freezing cold gray weather.

ANYWAY. My point, when I started this post by listing nice things, is that I'm really happy right now. Things are just blissful and lovely. The weather is good. The week is nearly over. We have a lovely weekend planned, including our first trip to a Rockies game. Our road trip is coming up soon. The dog is lying on the floor near me nuzzling her head against the leg of the coffee table, which is adorably bizarre. I love our house, even if it is sparsely furnished. I'm happy about being in good health and working out regularly.

I'm just happy about our life, both now and in the future. I love how things are and I love how they're going and how they will be. And I love that it's fall and we have an adorable dog and mountains visible from our street. It's little things, maybe, but it's all so lovely.

Of course we have problems and worries too, just like everyone else. But really, in the grand scheme of things they are all minor, and on a day like this when I feel cozy and peaceful, they don't matter at all.

I mean really, how can you sweat the little things when this pile of cuteness is lying at your feet?

  1. Soooooo happy that you've found your happy place. If only we could bottle it up and store a little of it away for when times are so perfect. Oh well, enjoy it while you've got it!

  3. Every once in awhile we all need to be reminded that we should be thankful for all the good things we have and not dwell on the bad. Thank you for reminding of that this morning!

  6. Whooo! My snotty nose even feels better!

    I hope you enjoy the Rockies game; the stadium is one of my favorites.

    I love when the pups hind feet are stretched all the way up to their noses. It looks oddly comfy.

  9. Yaaaay!

    (I am also excited, but a bit wary, of the 70-degree winter weather...I think last year was a fluke.)

    Contentment is never over rated. And with a snuggly pup like Montana, that has to bring extra bliss to your day!
