Happiness is....

Breakfast on the balcony overlooking the park

New music from John Mayer from iTunes

Living in Minneapolis with a great view from all my windows

A walk in the park with Chesty

A beautiful fountain in the park

Getting an email from Keith saying he's getting on the plane and heading home after being gone 3 days

Having the luxury of sewing all day- any day - because I don't have to work

Dancing around my sewing room with no one but Chesty watching

Finishing the blocks for another HeartStrings quilt

A glass of wine on the balcony overlooking the park before dinner

Sometimes I forget how wonderful my life is.....I hope your day was just as great!

You're just going to have to slow down. Chesty is looking so stressed! :)

Sounds like life is very good at your house!

Ahh yes, I well relate to that one. :) And while we're on that subject, my husband is also very happy to be off for the summer too. :)

Is it Paradise or is it Minneapolis... sounds like a girl having her cake AND eating it too...

The coolest part is that you appreciate it...

Oh what a lovely post! Sounds just how I feel about my life at present.
So luxurious to be able to sew whenever I get the urge.
Your Heartstrings quilt is so vibrant!

Definitely a fun post! My little Snoopy gets on his hind legs and we do lots of dancing together. :c) Thanks for the reminder to count our blessings.

You know, that view from the balcony overlooking the park is almost identical to one I had at the Intercontinental Hotel in The Plaza district in Kansas City. I had to do a double-take.

Your Amish Stripes quilt is coming along great. Thanks for sharing your progress.
