If It Makes You Happy
Yesterday I went to the Arts Festival in downtown Dunedin (one of my favorite towns in Florida). Dad & I used to go whenever he would see that it was being held, it was one of our favorite things to do. Only once before had I bought something – we always went for ideas & for the sheer enjoyment of strolling & looking at all the beautiful & creative things that people had designed. His favorite booths were always the photographers, which were one of my faves as well. :)
This time, I discovered the photography of Carol Glazer, a local photographer who is utterly fantastic. Seriously, if you ever get to see her work up close & personal, take the chance! :) She had in her booth this awesome print – and I could not resist it. I was already sold, but then she said…
“If it makes you happy, you should have it! Hang it in a spot where you will see it every day & you’ll always have a little something to make you happy.”
It does make me happy – as do the memories of the day. I’m doubly glad that I bought this one because every time I look at it, I’ll remember what a fantastic day it was. :)
I had gotten a late start Saturday for my run, so I kept it to only 2 miles. In the end, I could have run much longer than that, as the cold air or something set off my allergies & I had quite the lengthy coughing spell – long enough that I had to cancel my platelet donation appointment. The last thing you want to be doing is having a coughing jag while a super large needle is stuck in your arm! LOL
I haven’t been knitting too much, really. :) I did get a start on a new hat for the youngest manlet, though. The last beanie I’d knit for him became the victim of the puppy at his father’s house. LOL
