Day 22... #100HappyDays


Meet Speckles.  And why does Speckles make me happy?  Well, returning from my trip to Tampa, I came home with quite a few bites. And being the paranoid crazypants that I am, I started to freak out that I might've brought back bedbugs from the hotel! So, I called an inspection/ extermination company and in walks Speckles.  She's trained to sniff out bedbugs and their eggs!  And after a quick sweep of my luggage and my apartment, she wagged her tail, licked my hand and gave me the all-clear. And then she dropped down and decided her day was done. :)  $200 to have Speckles come over and give me some peace-of-mind? So worth it.

Day 21... #100HappyDays


One of the things I've always romanticized about living in NY is having a fabulous stoop.  I pictured myself sitting on the stairs, drinking coffee, watching people walk by, enjoying the neighborhood.  

In the few years I've lived here, I've yet to do any of this. And though I've had stoops at each of my apartments, none have been quite that...romantic.  But today, I've forced myself to do it. So I'm sitting here, in front of my building, on some very dirty steps, with a lingering smell of dog poop and trash in the air, writing this post.  Huh...not as fabulous as I'd always imagined. 

Here, however, is one of my favorite stoops...just a few doors down.  And, I'll have you know, home to a famous and much-adored NY'er. Even just walking past it daily makes me happy. :)

Day 20... #100HappyDays


Wheeeee! I'm 1/5 th of the way through this project! See? I'm not a commitment-phobe after all! :D

Today our neighborhood had a "planting the public planters" day.  The neighborhood chips in for all the supplies and flowers, and we meet to plant around the trees on the sidewalks and public areas.  And if all those 'p's aren't enough for you...I happened to plant PANSIES!  ...pretty!

Day 17... #100HappyDays


Despite having a bladder the size of a pea, I never take the aisle seat on airplanes.  There's something about being cocooned in the window seat, getting to look out at nothin' but fluffy clouds and blue skies, that makes it worth climbing over irritated neighbors to get to the restroom...every 10 minutes.  My view today flying from NY to Tampa...

Day 16... #100HappyDays


On a day needing just a little bit more comfort than usual, I turned to the ultimate comfort food. Might not be as happy tomorrow trying to squeeze into my jeans, but today, this works...just fine...
