Happy things, Part 3

OK guys. It’s time.

Facebook is an angry place right now. Hell, the whole world seems like an angry place right now. I say it’s time for another open thread about stuff that’s making us happy. Books, movies, people, products…. let’s do this! Here’s my happy list. What’s yours? Add your own good stuff in the comments…

“La La Land” (at Gateway). Oh my gosh you guys. Have you seen it? “La La Land” is a perfect film. So. Good. Also, Ryan Gosling. Also, the soundtrack.

“Where’d You Go, Bernadette” by Maria Semple. This book is a delight. I’m looking forward to reading Semple’s new one next.

Rosebud Salve for my lips this cold Wenatchee winter.

My big old fluff ball who thinks he’s a lap dog.

Cheap dry shampoo. This stuff has revolutionized my mornings. I honestly don’t know how my life would work without dry shampoo, coffee and my husband. These are my three essentials.

We’re building a house! A year and a half after we lost our home in a wildfire, our new place is going up. Things seem to be happening fast now, and that makes me happier than I can say.

Now YOUR turn: What makes you happy?
