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.

DOH Monday: wide open spaces

I love wide open spaces. The kid that you can only find in the plains. I find a deep peace in standing in the middle of a field so large that you can't see anything but grasses all the way to the horizon.

When I stand in a field like that, I feel like there is nothing to stand between me and my higher power as I understand it. I am all alone with nothing to distract me from that power greater than myself, the power that keeps me clean.

I find great serenity in wide open spaces.

Recently, on a road trip, I got the opportunity to stand at the edge of a wide open space and listen to the wind blowing through the grasses. It was almost as if my higher power was whispering to me, reminding me that just for today, I am the miracle and life is beautiful.

DOH Monday: Birthday Balloons

Recently, Sunshine's grandmother celebrated her 90th birthday.

As if that weren't awesome enough by itself, Sunshine's sister cooked gumbo for the occasion. Sunshine's sister is why I love cajun food; that wench can cook her ass off and that gumbo was fucking amazing.

There were also balloon bouquets on each table.

 

 

After the party was over, nobody knew what to do with all those balloons. So we cut them loose and let them fly so that they could bring a smile to somebody's face as they floated overhead.

DOH Monday - Fall Season

Summer has come and gone and left behind the beautiful colors of fall. I love this time of year because everything is changing, the leaves, the coffee flavors, weather, clothes, you name it- it's changing.

I recently went apple picking with my little family and it was a lot of fun. That is until my little one started to throw a tantrum (and apples). He was not as into it as I had hoped, unfortunately. So my attempt at a fun family outing was turned into a tantrum fest. Oh well, there is always next year. The upside is I had a lot of apples to make some yummy treats with. I made two batches of my finest Apple Crisp, which were delicious.

I love Fall. I love everything about it. The smell of leaves, the colors, the weather. Everything. I live in Maine, and we have the most beautiful foliage you'll ever find. Which is why we have so many tourists come through during the season. I feel like tourist season never really ends in New England. We have ski season, which lasts from early november some years, to late March, depending on the snow season. Then we have the tourists that come for the summer, many people have summer homes up here. And then the leaf peepers come for Fall. I just want a break from all of the tourists so I can enjoy my Fall without all of the people. I know it is great for the small businesses around here and they get a lot of foot traffic but I just want to enjoy it while it lasts, without all of the leaf peepers.

So that is my Dose of Happy, The Band. What is yours?
