What's Making Me Happy This Week (7)

Last weekend I was visiting my Mema in South Georgia, but I'm back this week with a compilation of what's been making me happy over the past two weeks:

This has been making me SO happy - I finally, finally got my hair done.  Every few years I get the brilliant idea to try to grow my hair out and wind up hating it while it grows.  Finally, I give in and cut it and remember that I look so much better with short hair.  Freshly done hair is one of my favorite things ever.

I mentioned above that I got to visit my Mema and we made a trip to the family pecan orchard while we were there.  My Papa, before he died, was a railroad man and a farmer.  He had a grape vineyard and a pecan orchard.  The vineyard has grown over now, but Mema is leasing the orchard, which meant we got to go pick up a few pecans while we were there.  It's still early for pecans, so we only got a handful, but we'll have more later this year.  It was wonderful to be in the orchard again.

Finally, a CD that my sister burned for me in college is making me happy.  She has track 10 marked, and that is the particular track I'm playing on repeat right now.  It's "Carolina" by Ben Gibbard.  I love rediscovering music I loved from college!

What's making you happy this week?
