make a joyful noise

A few of the things currently making me very happy indeed:

  • The peonies are out! my number one favourite flower ever, growing just below my bedroom window. Bliss.

  • My snazzy new folding bike. I couldnt resist this one when I saw the craigslisting. Too cute. I just love the bright red seat. I’ve decided to call her Lolly (as in pop).
  • Impromptu weekend at a cottage by a lake. How lovely to get out of the city and spend time with some delightful people. The dogs were in heaven.
  • Stella and Charlie rest before dinner

Other, even more exciting things are promising to come soon, but these are quite enough to be going along with. I hope summer is bringing wonderful things to you too.

    Cute bike! Interesting that you refer to her as a ‘her’ – most of the people I know who assign their bikes a gender are guys (and refer to them as ‘her’), and I’ve always thought of mine as ‘him’ (even the dusty rose one), so I assumed it was an opposite gender thing. But maybe not. Are bikes like boats, and supposed to be female? (Even if so, I don’t care, mine are definitely male.)

    And that cottage looks *so* nice – the wood floors, big windows and all the surrounding greenery – lovely.

  2. Hmm, I don’t know if there is a principle to it. This bike is definitely a her, and my other vintage red bike (the one in my header) is Eloise, but my mountain bike doesn’t have enough personality to have a gender and I’m sure I’ve had bikes that I thought of as male before. Growing up my family’s cars all had girl’s names.

    The cottage was wonderful, pretty much exactly what I’d build for myself if I had the chance.
