I didn’t think I had anything to share for today’s Photo Friday “Translucent” prompt, but as I scrolled through my archives I found a picture I took a short time ago which I thought would work quite well. It’s the view through a privacy window on the side of our house, where the ivy has been slowly taking over and has now apparently decided to start making its way across the glass.
I suppose we really should get out there and tame it – at least where it’s covering the window – but there’s something so lovely about catching an unexpected glimpse of life outside whenever I use the stairs that I hesitate to take action. (I’ll probably feel differently as the leaves start to fall, however – a bare vine won’t be particularly inspiring to look at!)
As for happiness… well, I woke up this morning in a fairly grumpy mood after a poor sleep last night, but decided to do my best to reclaim the day by starting off with something I consider to be an instant happiness-maker: a shot of Nutella! I normally drink my coffee black, but felt instinctively that this morning’s state of mind called for the addition of some heated milk and a tablespoon of that sweet, creamy, chocolate-hazelnut goodness.
And you know what? It worked.
What made you happy today?
