Weekend Reading – happiness project this week

Facebooktwitterpinterestlinkedinmail

Earlier this week when taking out a basket of recycling to the bin at dusk, as I tipped the rubbish in, I caught a whiff of spring. I closed the bin, stopped and breathed in deeply and discovered that my garden is currently overflowing with the scent of beautiful flowers. As I walk around the front of my house I smell a honeyed scent that permeated the air, and I realised as I stopped, and looked around too, all the trees are in bloom, the grass is still green (it will shortly go brown when the summer hits), and that just stopping to reflect and enjoy natures bounty makes me happier.
I also stopped to photograph with my phone some beautiful street trees whilst walking my whippets (Zella – left, purple lead, and Cleo – right, red lead)
So this weekend’s reading is dedicated to happiness.

  • Meeting some key work deadlines made me relieved, if not happy. And the weather here has been late summer awesome for almost 3 weeks. Nicest weather we've had in a year and a half, I reckon.

  • I have been happy for being able to be happy this week! My younger daughter has started school after a long pause. This has made me humble and grateful. After a long time I feel joy in my life. The weather has been warm and sunny and I have found it easy to accomplish my tasks. Thank you for all your enjoyable posts, Imogen!

  • This is such a lovely post – made even lovelier by the inclusion of that picture of the cherry blossom tree. I have an obsession with cherry blossoms – they're simply divine. 🙂

    Feeling like my new job is "clicking" and that I am getting a handle on the vast amount of information I've learned in the past week and a half made me extremely happy. I'm so glad to be learning again in a positive work environment.
