Whatsoever is lovely…day 22

Peaceable kingdom

I learned a new word today: dreich (it’s Scots, I learned it from Jez.). Today was a dreich day. When we were out there wasn’t enough light to take pictures, and it was so dreary that nothing looked very good. But on a dreich day a fire is a lovely sight…As are my lovely furry companions.

Gan Xingfu (chasing happiness) 赶兴福

This November I am chasing happiness by photographing and sharing one lovely thing I see each day. I do edit the photos, often with an artistic effect like the one above, because playing with a lovely thing makes me happy.

Note: My son checked with his co-workers and, while they haven’t heard the phrase gan xingfu, they thought it was just fine to use.

For more explanation about this project check out this post: Whatsoever is lovely…day 1.
