This week's meme is brought to you courtesy of prynne12, with whom I spent much of what I hope remains the worst years of my life (though with some of the best friends).


Rules: For eight days you have to post something that made you happy that day. Tag eight people to do the same.

My mom was babysitting my two-year-old cousin Kaydon (as well as my two-year-old nephew Waylon) this afternoon. When I wandered up to grab some food, I started playing with Kaydon, who is simply adorable. He cracked me up the most when I first stuck my tongue out at him, and he covered his little mouth and laughed. It was one of the cutest things I have ever seen. And then later he made me even happier by imitating me as I made faces at him. (I'm going to get in so much trouble with my aunt!) He really is just the cutest little boy.

What makes these encounters with Kaydon even more happy is that he doesn't smile a lot. For a little while, he didn't smile at all and always seemed sad. There's good reason for this, which I won't go into now. Suffice to say that his parents need some help and that he and his older siblings deserve happier lives.

The other thing that made me really happy today was the sky. I know I mentioned the stars in my 16 Things post, but man...I walked out tonight, and the sky was so full of light. I wanted to take a picture to post, but my digital camera isn't good for night-time shots. I miss convenience and proximity to theatres and museums and such, but I do appreciate the sheer beauty of these hills.
