Things That Make Me Happy

Here are just some things that I enjoy, that make me happy, and that I recommend to you for your own enjoyment. Mostly things from the week. This may become a recurring thing for Sundays, we'll see. Anyway, here are some wonderful things:

The Avett Brothers. Particularly the album 'I and Love and You' and the song of the same name.

The absolute attractiveness, manliness and all around yumminess of Christopher Plummer as Captain Von Trapp in 'The Sound of Music.' Also Julie Andrews in general, and how pure awesome she is. She is kind of the definition of awesome.

My brothers new little kitten, a long-haired grey little thing named Jasper.

My neighbors who just came over to ask if they could borrow our two biggest mixing bowls, and then brought them back two minutes later filled with popcorn.

Victorian novels. Little Dorrit and Hard Times by Charles Dickens. Persuasion and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Middlemarch by George Elliot. Villette and Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. This may also be a recurring theme.

The fact that this blogs visitation rate is higher than its ever been. Thank you all for that.

Anyway, hope these things bring you some joy too, even just vicariously. What are the happy things of your week? I would absolutely love to know.
