10 THINGS THAT MADE ME HAPPY THIS WEEK

"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.

Trust me, getting your car legal so you won't be worrying anymore was payment enough.
