10 random things that made me happy this week

  1. Having my house deep-cleaned by a sweet lady in our church.  (The fact that she was at my home from 9:30 until 5:30 speaks to two things: one, how thorough a job she did [and how bad my kitchen really was]; and two, how much we enjoyed each other’s company.)
  2. Pepperoni pizza with ranch dressing.
  3. Brazil Nut scented products from The Body Shop.
  4. The vast selection of interesting books in the juvenile fiction section of our itty bitty library.
  5. Unexpected (but welcome) news of a surprise pregnancy from a sweet, sweet friend.
  6. Ordering the installation of a sunroof in my car!  (I’m guessing this counts as my Valentine’s Day gift, huh, Jim?)
  7. Unlimited supply of crushed ice from my freezer door.
  8. Knowing how happy my mother-in-law is to have Seth at home with her.
  9. Discovering this blog.  More about that to come in a post next week.
  10. McDonald’s french fries and a Quarter-pounder with cheese.  We’ve had so many wonderful homemade meals brought to us in the last few weeks, I’d forgotten just how sinfully wonderful a drive-thru meal can be.

What made you happy this week?

Isn't Joye awesome! Love that girl...she is such a blessing to me and to many!

Snow days made me happy this week...time to play in the snow with my youngest and watch movies with my oldest...time to do laundry and work on my book... and chat with friends...good stuff.

So glad you had a happy week, Monica...

Love to you...

Sounds like a good week - or at least a good perspective on a week! I like the idea to do this. Might have to write my own list...! :)

P.S. Please note that I am not saying how very jealous I am that someone cleaned your house for you. Oh wait - I just said it, didn't I?

The Starbucks strawberries and creme frapiccino I just downed...not only did it quell the acid in my throat, but oh it was soooo delicious!!!

What a sweet list. It makes me happy! I've only ever met one person who ate pizza with ranch--but I adore ranch, I would probably dip anything it I just haven't tried it!

Adam and I have read a lot of juvenile fiction this year so far! Hehe. I've read several Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books, and he was into the Percy (something) and the Olympians books.

What made me happy this week is my dad getting discharged from the hospital. This was the 3rd stay in the past month and a half. We keep telling him they're going to save a room for him.

Glad you had a happy week and that BG is doing so well!

Love your list. Things that made me happy this week: roses, prayers, surprises, and love.

I love a good cheeseburger meal when you haven't had one in a while. Something about the fries and sheer fat content is awesome.
And addicting.
So I shouldn't eat them that much!
