I’ve noticed a trend in the blogging world through Ravelry–folks like Wendy, Lolly and Irishgirlieknits, have written entries about what makes them happy. So why don’t I do the same??
What Makes Laura Happy??
–Sleeping in. I have noticed that since I’m a working gal, my days of sleeping in till noon have been more and more rare so sleeping in to me is 9am. But the idea of waking up on my own and not by an alarm clock makes a huge difference.
–Our girls. They’re our little kids that we would do ANYthing for. They are the sweetest little girls that provide us with entertainment and love. Jermaine and I joke that if our power goes out, we’d still be adequately entertained…We got Luna.
and dear Layla is a feline teddy bear/cuddle muffin. Yes this picture below occurred on our sofa but this is a daily occurance with me as I sleep at night. She sleeps on top of me more often than not
They’re two sweetie kitties that love each other too. Let’s all say awwwwwwwwwwwww:
I really love watching movies with family and friends. Yes, that might make me lazy but it will never get old (Let’s all also note, Jermaine’s BEAUTIFUL paintings! The painting on the left is his first painting ever. Why are they on the floor?? Good question! I rarely am proud to admit to nagging but I’ve been on him to hang them)
–The cute underdogs in animated movies.
They’re the characters that make you go “awwwwwwwwwwwww!” They have flaws but are still very very lovable. Don’t know why but I love these little guys. Makes me want to go to the TV and pet them.
–Jermaine loooooooooooooooooves this afghan I crocheted him years ago. It was during college so I was broke. Because of that, I used cheap cheap yarn and since then, it’s pilled. A. Whole. Bloody. Ton. Despite this, he still looooooooooooooooooves this afghan. Watching him love it warms my heart. I guess you can broadly say that watching someone enjoy a knit/crocheted item this much makes me happy but since this is practically a daily occurance at our house, I’ll post a picture of it.
–Of course, knitting and quilting. It’s a personal time for me. The act of creating something is relaxing and thrilling at the same time.
–The LoLCat website. I swear…if I’m at work and need a quick laugh, this website never fails!
–Cookies and cookie dough. It’s my one of my biggest weaknesses
–Yarn/fabric sales…of course!
—Puppies. (Note–in my head all dogs are puppies) Yes I know it might be odd to hear that as I am definitely a cat person but I have a “grandma” relationship with puppies. I love them to pieces but once they start invading my space bubble or demanding I throw the ball for the millionth time, I want to go home to our kitties. That said, I still love petting puppies and if they’re puppies of my friends I spoil them rotten and geniunely feel bad if its been a while since Auntie Laura has been by to show them some love.
–Finally, a finished object
This is granny’s shawl that I completed this afternoon. The pic shows it soaking before blocking but as I type this I’m blocking it. On our bed. Thankfully we have a very comfy sofa (note to self–block in the early early morning. )
Details on the dry shawl to come tomorrow
