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!
It was a pretty warm day. It was supposed to storm maybe tonight, but now the radar looks like it may go past us. We could sure use the rain… not the storms. Although I don’t mind the sounds of a distant thunderstorm at all… it is kind of comforting in a strange way.
Today was a busy day. Errands, shopping and a little more tidying up of the apartment. I will have company over tomorrow night. There is a fierce card game battle planned with a friend and my daughter. So I may not post until Sunday… all depends on how late things run tomorrow night.
I am grateful I was able to get a little cleaning done. Not floor to ceiling work, but a lot of putting things away that were out on tables and counters. I have never been a great housekeeper … I tend to be clean but cluttered a lot of the time. My boyfriend helps out a lot with the clutter too. One of the things that fibro takes from me is my stamina to do much housework in one day, so that adds to it all as well.
I am trying to decide what was my happiness of the day. Running errands is not really happy stuff. Cleaning is not what I call happy either. But I did get to spend more time with my boyfriend by doing both of those things together. So I did not feel quite as isolated today and that is something to be happy about.
Ok I will stop babbling for the night and let you move onto another post. Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude. Have a great night/day!
