I found a great post on 22 Things Happy People Do Differently. I would add to the list #23: Spend time with your pets. As a confirmed cat person, my dog Abbie, pictured here on her 2nd birthday, has changed my life. She shows unlimited excitement when I come home from a long day at work, she nuzzles next to me on the couch, and she is my willing and ready walking partner.
Enjoy your day. Be happy. Hang out with dogs. Stay calm and knit. TGIF.
