Miscellaneous Happiness

Today I was sitting wondering why I am generally pretty happy when there are so many things to be overwhelmed and frustrated about.  Here are some of the things I thought of...

My kids are outside riding bikes in the driveway, and laughing.
My peas are planted (the garden bed was frozen a few inches down, but there was enough defrosted to put peas in).
Progress with the city to get permission to apply for a building permit is moving along at a decent speed.
The chicks are entering their awkward teenage weeks.
The chicks are playing angry birds with each other.  Running, flapping their wings and bowling into everyone else.
The chicks are establishing a pecking order.  Some are getting aggressive, guess which ones will go in the canning kettle first...  (Should it bother the feminist in me that chicks adhere to traditional gender roles so much?)
I'm married to someone I really love, and I would rather spend time with him than anyone else.
I've been getting regular exercise and have some big races this year!
The Girl Scout cookies arrived today.

Still waiting on my Girl Scout cookies...oh what a happy day that will be ;)

Ever so slightly jealous that you've got things planted and still growing in the greenhouse. We have SO much work to do in the next few weeks to get to a point where we can grow anything...not to mention we better start getting our seeds going.

No matter what craziness life throws at us, focusing on the positive can only bring more good ;)

I'm looking forward to getting some seeds started soon- we just have to finish building a new chicken coop/shed, and a top bar beehive. (I'm with you on the so-much-work-to-do). :)

Your innate positivity is one of the things I love best about you! It's just in your nature and honestly I wish it were mine too:) What races are coming up for you? I'm running a St. Patty's day one this Saturday!

I have a 100 mile bike ride in June (up in Logan), and I'm now registered for the Top of Utah marathon. It will be my first.... :)
