things makin' me smile

Linus: You're so crabby all the time you've forgotten how to smile!
Lucy: Who's forgotten how to smile?
Linus: You have! Let's see you smile! I'll bet you can't! (Lucy tries to smile.) There! See? A smile goes up, not down! You've forgotten how to smile! See? (He leaves.)
Lucy: How humiliating!

Poor Lucy. Here a just a few of the little things that are makin' me smile lately. The right way up even.


Sipping my morning coffee from these cute red vintage espresso cups with perfectly round shaped handles.


Being greeted by this pooch everyday on my walk to work. He's always ready for a chin-wag over the fence.


Looking up at a sun soaked lighthouse after experiencing a long stretch of miserable weather this month.

Lucy: I'm on a new campaign to be nice to people. (She sees Snoopy.) While I'm at it I suppose I might as well include dogs. (pat pat pat.) Here's a nice pat on the head.
Snoopy: Thrillsville!

She's at least making an effort...

Those cups remind me of a coffee set my grandma bought in NY in the 50's.

Hey T ! I think that pooch is wishing "Take me! Rescue me! Let me go with you!"
I love Peanuts!

Hot Fudge said...

What beautiful images you have created Tracy. How I would love to take that pooch home and pat him while I drank my espresso out of that lovely cup. Even Lucy would crack a smile at that.

M.Kate said...

Hey Harriet said...

M.Kate - That's not my dog Sophie. He's just a lovely big goofy dog I pass on my way to work each day. I don't know his name but I call him Bob :)

Aw..T, your poor computer :( hope it gets fixed..:)

Sarah said...

Hi Harriet!
Those cups are lovely-I love that colour combination too. I have a collection of Snoopy books. They are a guaranteed cheer up if I am feeling sad! Hope your computer gets fixed soon.

Hey T,great post, a smile does wonders without a doubt:0) Great Ttv's, you clever girl!! Hope you've been well, i have been a slack SS of late, maybe tomorrow. Hope your computer is up and running soon. Ax

bobbie said...

I loved this post! But now it is Shadow Shot Sunday, and your computer is down. So sorry. Hope it's up again soon.

The thing that put a big smile on my face happened last night. The first ruby throat hummingbird of the season came to my feeder! I'm excited!

Rosebud Collection said...

Lucy is such a funny person..but that Snoopy beats all. I just look at him and Woodstock and laugh.
Hope your computer is back up and running soon. Sometimes, I wonder what I did before a computer, don't you?
Take care and Happy SSS..

Gina said...

I'm sorry about your computer problems and hope they're resolved soon.
Hugs and blessings,

Ali said...

Oh, poor Lucy! (and poor Harriet losing your computer!)
I love your TtV pics Tracy - not game to try them again myself (disastrous!) yet ... I'll just appreciate yours for the time being I think!

Carin said...

Can understand you're not smiling not with a "broken" computer. Hope it will be fixed soon! Somehow it seems we can't do without computers anymore! Amazing how this happened in about 20 years time!

Rita said...

Having just gone through this myself I certainly feel for you. I will say a prayer to the saint of electronics for you. Hope that you will be up and running soon.

After 2 crashes in two years and learning from our tech that 80% of all failures are caused by viruses, I went and got a new Mac. Hope that way I can avoid having to go through this again anytime soon.

ginger said...

ew, i don't like it when computers are sick....the power button on mine is going out so i'll probably be in the same boat soon.

i hope you're back in business soon.
