Things That Make Me Happy Thursday: #14 and #15
#14: Christmas Lights!:
Yay! Sparkly pretty things making everything look shiny and awesome during the dark, drab winter season. Christmas lights, whether on houses, trees or Manhattan skyscrapers totally make my day and I think they are lovely. I can’t wait until I have my own house (or at least an apartment with a balcony) where I can string some shiny happiness of my own!
Here are some pics of Rockefeller Center’s Christmas lights that I took a couple years ago:
#15: Blue Skies:
As much as I loved growing up in Oregon, one thing I did not enjoy was the near-constant six months of rain between November and March (and sometimes even later). It’s really grating to constantly look like a wet rat and it was on my top five things of reasons why I wanted to leave the state. Not that New York doesn’t have rain. In fact, here we have rain all year long – thanks to thunderstorms – but things are more evenly spaced around rather than being hounded by raindrops every day. Today, there was a bright blue sky outside my window at work and just seeing the color made me so happy. There’s a reason why the PNW has so many cases of Seasonal Affective Disorder! Blue skies make me very, very happy. Even if it is 20 degrees outside.
