weekly happiness.

I always try to notice and appreciate "happy" things, whether they're big or small. Some happiness from this week:

A friend buying me a cup of tea.

The woman who said, "Happy running!" to me.

A friend cooking fettucine alfredo for supper last night (while I went for a run).

That same friend cooking a delicious meal tonight.

The yummy lemon-lime drink I had tonight.

The perfect hot chocolate at Second Cup.

Winning $500 at La Senza today. (I was shocked! I've never won anything that big before!)

An evening visit from two good friends.

Receiving "fun" mail.

Watching Big Brother with the roomie. (Go, Jordan!)

Buying children's books for a homework assignment! (And reading those books to my roommates.)

What made you happy this week? (It seems like a lot of what made me happy was food and beverages. Oh well. I like to eat!)

  1. My Tucker puppy always makes me happy, I'm ridiculously in love with that dog :)
    Other things that made me happy... Watching the horses play, the gorgeous sunset at my friend Laura's, Echo puppy doing a perfect sit/down/over (and with NO 'treats' for reward!), watching George the mini donkey gaze with google eyed adoration at his true love (my old mare Cessa)

  2. Hello! I've just come across to your blog from Summer Harms' comment section - I hope you don't mind me popping by : ) You have a lovely little blog here.
