Butterflies: Things That Make My Heart Flutter

Random Bits of Happy

* Doing favors for friends that make them so happy they almost cry.  It really gives you the warm and fuzzies to be able to say, “No really, I’d do anything for you and was happy I could do this for you!” 

* Walks on the beach during sunny weather.  Up until today (hello cold wind and 32 degrees!)  it was actually warm days reaching as high as 77 and cool nights.  I was getting used to the nice weather so I am a little bummed we have a few more cold days, but I got a little taste of the warm and know that it’s just around the corner! 

* Fun springtime is starting to peak through in everyday living.  I found this little dandelion while exercising.  I was on my walk and had to stop to take a picture of the green little bit of fun that was peaking through the dead grass that also has little bits of green popping up as well. 

Quick Mentions:

* Burial  – Untrue * “Honey you need to take that off my ipod, it sounds like bad house” * Podcasts that keep me walking past my normal 30 minutes.  * “No way….there’s an app for THAT!” * Baby fingers that curl around my finger….squish! * New friends commenting on my blog.  * Impromptu days that make me smile.  * Good books about vampires.    

Things That Make My Heart Flutter

Random Bits of Happy

This was a trying week as I had medical testing that drained me and stressed me out a bit.  However there are a few things that made my week better, made me smile and kept me on a positive mind set.

bangles and bracelets 2

*Saturday Terrell & I went to the Riverside Arts Market to see what was on the tables.  I bought some cheese from a nearby farm & some fresh organic red bell peppers.  We had a healthy lunch from the food vendor booths and then headed to my favorite thrift store.  At the thrift store I found 2 really neat bangle bracelets one plastic red & white and obviously vintage and a metal gold & silver that I’m guessing is from the 80’s.  I also came home with some funky picture frames and with a coat of black paint they were ready for some prints that I needed to frame.


*Tuesday was craft night and also my Dad’s birthday.  We were going to dinner as a family and I was upset about missing craft night.  I thought it out and went early so I could at least get the pattern and find out how to make it.  It’s a cute little retro owl and I picked colors of orange, yellow and green fabrics.  My owl pillow makes me smile.  I also got super crafty earlier and made my Dad’s Father’s Day card and made a messenger bag from an old pair of jeans.  All my crafts were very successful!  I gave myself big pats on the back!


*The best best best thing that happened this week happened yesterday evening.  My IPOD!!! It’s working correctly again.  It was working on the level that I could play it but every time I tried to hook it up to my computer so I could load my new music it went to “verifying…”.  It did this for 2 weeks and I finally let the ipod run completely out of battery and it powered up hooked to my computer correctly.  Look for 2 album reviews next week…Grizzly Bear & Regina Spektor.  Oh yay!  I have an 80G and only have about half of it used so I was going to be really sad if I had all that unused space forever!  Happy happy day!

*Last but not least my honey was feeling really burned out from work.  He took a few days off and has been spending the day with me.  We are silly together and have been spending lazy mornings in bed, afternoons running around town, lunches of grilled cheese and leftover curry (separately!) and lots of hugs and kisses.  Maybe tomorrow we can go walk the beach!  Of course I haven’t been good about looking for a job…I’ve been preoccupied.
