I grew on the wisdom of Charles Schultz so I believe “Happiness is a warm puppy.”
Puppy + Snow = Happiness!
Charlie has been sick this week, not that he acted sick or knew he was supposed to be resting …. but yesterday we finally met up with his friend Laine for a hike. This action shot says it all.
- Hiking off leash
- Climbing rocks to be king of the world
- Hanging out with friend Laine
- Enjoying the beautiful end of summer weather
- Sharing a stick with Laine
- Did somebody say “treat?”
Recipe for a successful trail hike:
✅ one active pup
✅ a beautiful trail with wildflowers
✅ nice weather
✅ Charlie chasing butterflies and exploring but always staying close!
Recently I was nominated to share my 3 favorite quotes. I had previously done this challenge, so I’m sharing one at a time now. I saw this on a magnet last weekend and it exemplifies my approach to life.
If you aren’t finding joy in the little things, you are missing out. For those who are in the middle of a three day weekend, use this gift of extra time to find something that makes you happy and embrace it with both hands.
Coffee, book, puppy
sun shining through all windows
When you’re a puppy and only ten weeks old, everything is a learning experience. Today, with about six inches of snow, Charlie romped and ran making tracks in the forest. Sliding, rolling, and digging joyfully. The only one enjoying it more than Charlie – me watching him. He’s the perfect combination of agile and clumsy; navigating rough terrain at times, and plunging headfirst into snow banks moments later. He truly is poetry in motion.
I love coffee. It’s magical.
Coffee is one of the things that makes me happy. This particular cup (yesterday with a good friend) would have been appreciated for the obvious reasons.
But the bubbles formed when milk, yes milk – never cream, was added let me know coffee loves me too. 💕
