Homestead happiness was uppermost on all our minds this week; we’re sick of wallowing.
So, when we spotted the movie Hector and the Search for Happiness playing on Sky movies we thought it worth a watch, although we weren’t really expecting that much. In fact, it turned out to be a nice little hunk of escapism and just what the doctor ordered. Central to the plot are a plethora of quotes Hector gathers from various unlikely places, all around the theme of happiness.
Today, to go with baked cheesecake and a purpose-made soundtrack, The Renovator chose one of them:
Lacking for nothing. We’re not talking material stuff here, it’s all about one person’s strength balancing another’s weakness, a bunch of people with whom you can be 100% real, safety in numbers, and unconditional love.
Yep, soppy to the core – and happy, too!

Timely quote for this household too, where we haven’t a week like yours was last week, but where we’ve had some moments to be grateful for each other.
And I love the photo – how long did it take before the goats ate the frame?
oh heavens, I just listened to the soundtrack. I should have listened first, I wouldn’t have been nearly so nice in my comment 🙂
don’t shoot the messenger 🙂
The frame survived with only one small nibble to the left hand corner:)
Soppy is fine by me, wallow in it, why not!
That sounds about right (though perhaps cheese should have come into it too).
What a comfortable, comforting post! Soppy is fine by me. The film sounds like something we might like to watch and I enjoyed quite a lot of the soundtrack too. Have a good week!
Yes, I’m a firm believer in there being a definite place for soppy in our life as long as we don’t overdo it 🙂 Glad the soundtrack had some decent moments for you.
Wonderful movie, loved it so much! My fave quote: #3“Many people see happiness only in their future.” I hope the cake was great too xo Johanna
The cake was wonderful 🙂
