My Happy List: Good To Be Home

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

My Happy List

I am happy to be home.  We have tons to do this week before we move Shanley into her apartment at school Sunday, and I am a wee bit overwhelmed.  But I want you to know that I am so appreciative of your comments, emails, and cards during this difficult time.  Y'all have truly been a blessing to me!  Please be patient as I answer emails, send thank-yous, and answer calls.  It might take me a few days, and it also might take me a few days to get around to visiting your blogs.




This little guy made me happy today.  I watched him eat in the wooded area of our back garden for about twenty minutes today.  

Please prepare yourself for a VERY LONG happy list next week.  I have tons to share with you!

But in the meantime, join Mamarazzi, and share your happy!

Until next time...

  1. What a sweet little bunny. I've been happy seeing deer lately. Two little fawns live in the woods by our neighborhood and we often see them and two or three does when we take our morning walk.

  2. Such a sweet bunny. I am sorry for your loss Ricki Jill - sending prayers your way.

  3. Hi Ricki Jill. I am very sorry about your father-in-law's passing. It is sad to lose a family member no matter the age or circumstance. My thoughts are with you.

    The bunny is so cute. We have them running through our yard regularly. They are cute but I don't like them when they eat my plants. Take care! -------------- Shannon
