Things That Are Making Me Happy:

Five images of things that have made me happy these last few weeks, plus one pretty bad pun:

This is Walter. He was my Valentine’s Day gift, and spent the whole weekend following me around. Here he is at a pizza joint in Corvallis. He also went grocery shopping with me, out to dinner with me, and on a couple walks through town. Life is a lot more whimsical with a balloon in tow.

This is Thor. He is the family’s newest pet, a tawny rabbit with a crazy faux-hawk, though this picture doesn’t do him justice. He likes to climb onto heads, as demonstrated by my little brother here.

This is a sense of fashion that is timeless. Taken at the high school ski tournament this weekend up at Mt.Hood, this grandmother to one of the contestants rocked her authentic vintage style, complete with unseen white-rimmed, bug-eye sunglasses.

This is Block15’s special micro-brew, the Super Nebula. It’s dark as midnight, and one swallow gives you alternating tastes of chocolate, coffee and caramel tones. The secret? This beer is aged in emptied bourbon barrels. Yum.

I’m also quite fond of the guy hiding behind the beer.

This is a sign painted onto the streets of Corvallis to indicate that one cannot skateboard downtown. To me, it looks more like a hot dog on wheels, which I am inclined to pretend to ride with pointy shoes on. It’s really something I relish–get it?

Sorry for that pun, I really couldn’t resist…but to be fair,  I did warn you.

Have a Happy Week!
