Oh Happy Day!

I am accepting the Happiness Challenge. I stole this bit of sunshine from Kwizgiver who got it from The Gal Herself and I believe she got it from Mo."Each day in August you are to post about something that makes *you* happy. Pretty simple. And, it doesn't even have to be every day if you don't want it to be. It's a great way to remind ourselves that there are positive things going on in our lives, our communities, and the world."

As anyone that knows me can tell you, I’m a bit of a Pollyanna. I’ve been known to play “The Glad Game” more than once, found more than one silver lining, followed more than one rainbow to it’s end, and wished on more than one falling star. I’m usually quite perky and optimistic. Some would say to the point of being annoying. Especially if they haven’t had their morning coffee yet. :)

So of course this idea was right up my alley. Even if I am starting a bit late. But I’ll attempt to catch up right now……

8/1 – First Fridays are my fav. The first Friday of every month you can find me at my local 2600 Meeting. Sometimes the conversations are far over my head, but all the guys are very sweet and oh so funny. The evening only gets better since after the meeting I go watch my oldest friend, Betty, do karaoke. This particular First Friday had a bonus since before the meeting I went over Betty’s house for dinner. She made breakfast for dinner. Her husband and I were thrilled. And stuffed.

8/2 – We got our first water/garbage bill for the new place and even with the deposit and connection fees I can afford my half without stressing or worrying.

8/3 – I went to the library which is always a treat. Plus, my brother and I went to IHOP and had breakfast for dinner. (Anyone seeing a theme here?)

8/4 – I finished Charlaine Harris’ latest book, FROM DEAD TO WORSE after only having checked it out yesterday afternoon. That means I get to start a new book tomorrow.

Okay that gets me caught up. Stay tuned for more rays of happy sunshine. :)
