The Happiness Project

Friday, February 21, 2014

I actually bought The Happiness Project kind of by accident.  I was looking for another book the last time I was browsing around Target, and happened upon the yellow colored cover instead.  I was kind of down in the dumps that day (for who knows what reason), and I said “sure, happy, sounds good.”  The book was written by this woman named Gretchen Rubin who was relatively happy, but felt like she wasn’t as happy as she could be.  So she spent a year on a “happiness project” where she started researching different little ways that she could improve both her lifestyle and her outlook.  I’ve been reading a little bit every day at lunch, and I think I can actually say that it has made a difference.  I realize how much my happiness affects the people around me and vice versa, so I have started making an effort to act how I want to feel (something  Gretchen keeps preaching) instead of pouting when something doesn’t go my way.  Obviously I am not eloquent enough to do it justice, but if you have been in a funk recently like I was, you might find solace in this book.  What about you guys?  Any good books recently?

Waterlogue

Friday, February 7, 2014

Ever since I downloaded the Waterlogue app on Tuesday, I have been compulsively turning all of my favorite pictures into watercolor masterpieces.  It is completely knocking my socks off.  I have big plans to print a bunch of these and frame them around my house.  Here are some of my favorites.  I think it is currently only available for iphone and ipad but hopefully they will eventually make a version for other phones and our computers too.

Catsley Shacklebolt

Monday, February 3, 2014

So we got a baby kitten.  It has become even more difficult to go to work each day because staying home and watching Downton Abbey episodes while he cuddles under my neck seems way better.  He really likes Downton Abbey.  And is a bit of a food thief apparently, as he has already successfully batted a chocolate chip cookie and a piece of pizza out of the hands of grown adults.  His name is Catsley Shacklebolt after the Harry Potter wizard Kingsley Shacklebolt.  (Get it?  Because he is a cat?  No?  It’s ok, most people don’t.)  Meet him and love him.
