Its that time again...Happy list Saturday

     Thank goodness for Natasha.  I'm so glad she came up with this because it forces us to look for the positive.  Some days I find it very difficult...others not so much.  Thankfully, this week has been easier than most.  So, here goes:

1.  Spring is here!  We had our first over 80 day and I loved it!  I have always been a warm weather girl...I think it's the California blood in me (I'm originally from San Diego).

2.  Working on Addie's garden.  Along with the warm weather comes digging in the dirt.  Here's a sneak peek!

We took out all the old plants and rocky soil.

Hubs filling the garden with fresh compost/soil

Its filled and ready to be planted!

Beatiful skies  :)

3.  I am now the proud new owner of a Nikon D3100 DSLR camera.  I upgraded from my 5 year old D40x which I loved.  I'm looking forward to the beautiful weather and flowers of spring so I can get lots of practice.

4.  My husband.  As always, this man makes me happier than anyone I've ever met.  He puts in a full day of work then comes home to do more digging and landscaping.  He knows I have a lot of limitations since the accident and he does this without complaint.  He just hates it when I take his picture (see below), but he's learning to deal with it.

The look on his face says it all...  :)
 So, that's my list for the week!  I really am thankful that this was a good week.  It has been so hard for me to deal with my sadness.  I am a naturally happy person, not the type to mope around, so the grief after losing Addie has been a very eye opening experience.  Like many of us BLMs, I've had to learn how to breathe again; how to live again; how to smile again.  This list really has forced me to look for the positive in my life...and I'm so thankful I have some!

     Have a wonderful week everyone!

Love you list and looking forward to seeing Addie's garden as it grows :) A new camera sounds like lots of fun... I bought a DSLR last year and still having a great time learning how to use it. With you in your sadness and hope you have a lovely w/end xoxo

Glad you have such an awesome husband. Have fun with the camera and working on Addie's garden. I am jealous of your weather, although the weather here in the 50's felt pretty good today.
