Well, speaking of happiness,
it will make both me and my husband happy
if I get that laundry done,
and get the mail mess taken care of!

Oh, yeah, did I tell you why I had such a "mail mess"?
I was looking for some lost Silver Dollar City season ticket passes.
...And I could say, happiness is finding them!

Truly...a 'delicious' photo array. Blue birds, no matter what species, is always a favorite of mine! Love the 'flight' from the birdhouse.
