Seven months are gone now and surprisingly I am still plugging along with this challenge to post about my happiness and gratitude every day this year. August brings the state fair here in Iowa and lots of heat and humidity. It is the time to see the back to school shopping start with kids dreading it and parents loving it. As I continue my challenge I hope you will take a minute to reflect on your day too. You can even share your happiness and gratitude here in the comments or on your own blog. There is good in every day!
Another day in the record books, a day to scratch off the calendar, a day closer to death… however you say it, it’s over. My day started out in utter panic. I woke up sure I was late to pick up my dad. Texted him and said I would be about 45 minutes late. He replied, “what?” It was about the time he replied that my mind woke up and reminded me this was Tuesday and not Monday all over again. Love it when a day starts out like that … NOT! But it gave us something to laugh about when I went over to fix him dinner.
It was a rainy and then humid day. Got a little cleaning in the kitchen done and baked a small batch of cookies tonight. Can’t help but be happy with a warm chewy chocolate chip cookie in your hand!
I am trying to get the apartment ready for my friend to visit. I know she will be here Saturday night for cards, not sure if she is coming before that or not. Kind of just playing it by ear as we go. So I am picking a small area to tidy up every day. I hope it doesn’t overwhelm my body with aches and pains, One of the worst things about fibro is the way it punishes you for doing just a little too much. And there is no warning that it is too much, it just feels that way the next day. Well sometimes later the same day. I am grateful that my boyfriend helps me out some.
Tomorrow is coffee day for my Dad so I should call it a night so I can get up and get ready for that on time. Find your happiness and feel your gratitude. Have a good night/day!
