"Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions." Dalai Lama
29 AUGUST - 5 SEPTEMBER, 2010
As always, not in any particular order :)
#1 Happy Birthday, Elana. I am happy to have you as a daughter-in-law, and in our family.
#2 I am happy we know what our next baby grandchild will be. A GIRL. (Due in January.) I already have 2 grandsons, and Lincoln.
#3 I got my nephew's address. AND got a letter mailed to Chile.
#4 THANK YOU SO MUCH, LESLIE FOR TAKING MY CAR IN FOR INSPECTION. I absolutely HATE taking it in. I sit there terrified about what I will have to spend. (I needed rear tires and something fixed so I could squirt water on the driver's side window. DONE) I usually pay a kidult to do it, but she just did it. And then took it back when repairs were made. I LOVE A NEWLY LEGAL CAR. THANK YOU, LESLIE!!!!!
#5 Doug looked on line and figured out how to fix the windshield washer thing. The Internet makes me happy. Doug makes me happiest. Thank-you, Honey.
#6 Remember the 2 matching shirts I found on National Thrift Store Shopping Day? I needed them to wear to an "Alice in Wonderland Tea Party" that I was invited to. I was one half of TWEEDLE DEE AND TWEEDLE DUM. It was fun. The party was outside and decorated so well. The food was really fun, too. I especially liked the crumpets with clotted cream and the cucumber sandwiches. Thank-you, Paula. It was fun. (But my kidults thought we were too old to have a costume tea party :)
(I had a picture here, but it disappeared. Doug will put it back Wed. p.m.)
#7 Book Club was this week. I really enjoy book club. This month one friend was there who lost her husband a few weeks ago. The next day, another book club friend's husband passed away. I am thankful for friendships formed in happy times that help support thru times that are hard or painful.
#8 For Family Home Evening we met at Lindsay and David's not owned, yet house, and leveled the ground for their shed. The FREE shed that I helped them win. (Remember the 97% credit I got?) The shed is in and filled, now.
#9 Does this make me happy? Leslie showed me how you press "next blog" and visit random blogs. I do not have time to play with that, but am happy I learned what it was for. (I do wonder if I am missing a GREAT craft idea or wonderful, delicious recipe.) Did everyone else already know this?
#10 I am happy this week is not (supposed to be) as busy as last week. I have a few projects that I want/need to work on.
I have 2 recipes and a craft to post this week. I will also add something to "my favourites" GIVE AWAY basket. I hope we all find plenty to be happy about this week.
