Gardening + good drinks + mochi = happiness!
Posted June 14, 2013on:
Today is an amazing day. Everywhere I look, something is making me smile, is making me feel good about the universe. It’s a nice change of pace.
– Yesterday I reconnected with a good friend from high school, and also with a few other friends I haven’t heard from in a long time.
– I have a dinner date with my hubby later this evening.
but wait! there’s more!
Ready for a photo dump of everything else that’s got me smiling big today?
Went to the garden center to get a few more things for the garden, they had a carousel of topiary animals! I asked if I could take a photo and they said “we encourage it!” . It had a lion, a seahorse, a dinosaur and a horse. how cool! And it’ll just look better as the summer progresses, because all the grasses and other plants will root and grow taller. by the end of the summer the animals will be completely green.
So now my balcony garden looks even nicer with some trailing accent things. not so much dirt showing. I wish the basil would take off though.
in food and drink land, these made me smile too:
J.K. Scrumpy is to Woodchuck like, well, like Southern Tier is to Bud Light. I’m a beer snob and proud of it!
and Mochi! Green Tea Mochi (rice pounded into sticky dough, stuffed with green tea paste) brings tears to my eyes every time I eat it. It’s really dense too, so you’re not hungry for like 12 hours after eating one.
now it’s your turn. What’s making you smile today?
