I'm not too much of a "Happy [Whatever]!" person, except on certain holidays. I'm just not usually that perky. But because I seem to have collected a bunch of very happy pictures recently (and because I have to force myself to be happy or else this rain will destroy me), here I go. It's like my version of My Favorite Things.
Little red wagons.
And hanging flower baskets.
And a jumble of 19th century literature.
And things painted turquoise. (If the above three pictures made you want to go antiquing, they were taken here.)
And shop cats on leashes.
And 2/$5 Old Navy flip-flops.
And old bridges.
And the novelty of Package Stores being open on Sunday. (Yes, this really was taken on a Sunday.)
And signs that are just as Connecticut as all get out.
And the fact that there is such a thing as a Wild Flower Test Area.
And now, if it will only stop raining for longer than one day at a time, I will be very happy indeed.
