Wind Chimes and Birdies

It doesn't take major things to make us happy.

Around here, flowers, winged visitors to a humble bird bath and wind chimes can all count toward making a happy day.

Wind chimes?  Uh huh.

A dear girlfriend gave some to hubs for his birthday.

He hung them on the back porch.

Honestly, the soft chiming they make never fails to bring smiles.

The are soothing and pleasant to the ear. 

Even though the sound the chimes make is soft, I was a little worried about disturbing the neighbors.

None have complained so the chimes will stay!

Another thing that brings instant happiness is seeing birds taking sips of water out of the birdbath.

That is just thrilling. See?  Little things can contribute so much to our happiness.

Good morning - Love your yard Susan. My wind chimes look very similar to yours - I love them and want to bring them when and if we move - someone is looking this afternoon. It would make me happy to sell the house! lol

What makes me happy every morning is going to the pool for aqua aerobics six days a week. I love to start my day in sunshine and exercise which I love. My neighbor has more than fifteen wind chimes in her yard. It's like a symphony when the wind blows....

I really like the sound of wind chimes, but to be honest, after awhile, I tire of hearing them. We have so many of the same interests, my, love for the birds, our children, and just the beauty that we see in our every day world. You are such a wonderful person, and a grateful one too, and I am so honored to know such a special soul.

What makes me happy right now? Going to lunch at my favorite restaurant with husband. :~)

A happy day to you, dear.

love, ~Sheri

Hello from Spain: I do my happy that tomorrow is a holiday, no work in my city. The girls have no school and we will enjoy a day with sunshine. We keep in touch


It is indeed the little things in life that mean alot. Enjoy the sweet sound of those chimes. Your birdbath is pretty too.

I truly love seeing our Knock-out roses in bloom, and they are really doing well this spring! I need to create a spot for wind chimes! I'd love to hear yours!

A walk in the forest with my husband and our dog Lexi is one thing that makes me happy. Great exercise and the added bonus of seeing the beauty of nature always brings a smile...

Lots of little things to enjoy in your yard. I read a quote that said something about "having continuous small treats, makes for a happy life." I have to agree with that and it looks like you you do too.

Your post reminded me that we have a new wind chime to put out! (Like you, I'm a little concerned about the neighbors, but we'll see...)
