These days 7::52

Goodies from my craft swap partner! IMG_1348 IMG_1343 IMG_1345

These days we are all a little bit crankier then usual. I blame the weather. We're stuck inside. Then it's nice enough to get outside for a few days. Then it's freezing again so we're stuck inside together again! Our usual pick me ups like painting, knitting, building with Lego's, reading, are all getting a little old. 

So in order to not continuously complain, I thought I'd share some things that are making us happy.

::The arrival of swap packages!! My beautiful package was put together by Anke from Our Little Piece of Heaven. I love it all!
::The arrival of our birds from the Mud Puddles to Meteors bird migrations swap. Meryl & her little one made us some lovely birds! We haven't gotten them into a mobile yet, Ree is enjoying playing with them as is!
::The sunset the other day was stunning. Unfortunately these pictures were waiting for me on the camera, I didn't see it in person. I had gone to bed with the baby just a little bit before this. When I mentioned to my husband he should have woken me up, he said something to the effect of "One never wakes a sleeping bear." 
::I'm working on a new project for myself. I'll be sharing it here soon!
::My knitting has stalled it seems. But that leaves time for reading. I've actually been finishing up a book here or there lately!
::I made a corned beef and cabbage meal the other night. My first time and it came out delicious!

What has been making you happy lately?
