A Dose of Happy

DOH Monday: French Pastry

Recently, a friend of mine went to Paris. As we were messaging while she was there, she asked me what I wanted from France. I told her I couldn't think of anything because French clothes were far too expensive for me to ask anybody to buy for me.

Then it occurred to me: the French are known for their pastries. So I told her if she could figure out how to get me a pastry without it getting stale or destroyed, then a French Pastry would be divine.

This woman didn't just get me a french pastry. She got me a Basque French Pastry. From the Basque region of France. And she managed to get it home from France INTACT, and not stale. I was duly impressed.

It was unfuckingbelieveably good.

So Sunshine had to go get a procedure done last week. They had to stick a camera down his throat and look at his stomach because acid erosion.

They said everything looked OK.

One less health issue to have to worry about is definitely a Dose of Happy for me.

Last year, for Christmas, we went to the beach. South Padre Island, to be specific. I got to spend Christmas Day on the beach, and it was amazing.

We drove to the place where the road ends and got out and walked and walked and picked up seashells, then we rode to the other end of the island, where the land ended, and walked, and picked up seashells, and saw birds, and took a dolphin watch cruise, and in general, just opted out of the commercial side of Christmas.

Whenever I feel the world pressing in too closely around me, I just look at these pictures and remember when we went to the place where the road ends. I remember the Christmas that was about enjoying the world I live in, with the souls I love the most. I remember the awe I felt as I stood on the beach and watched the gulf crash into the shore, and I remember the tears I cried as I stared at the beauty my creator wrought. And the world recedes, and my heart knows a moment's peace.

So, this week, my dose of happy made me laugh and smile, but I'm pretty sure my dog was pissed off at me.

I made a lion's mane for her to wear for Halloween. Halloween is also when we celebrate her birthday.

She didn't give a shit about the lion costume, she didn't give a shit about the trick-or-treaters. She just wanted her presents. But she sure did make a cute lion, even if she was royally pissed when I took the pic.

Isn't it precious?

We were in Oklahoma City recently, and saw an informational card for the Bricktown Candy Store. Gelato. Hot Chocolate. Coffee. 150 flavors of bottled soda pop. and candy candy candy.

As if that weren't enough happy ...they even let my little Mollie in.

And there was a machine that made candy art sculpture things.

And soda pop that tasted like purple. With bubbles in it.

I'll shut up now and let the pictures speak for themselves.
