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 day to run a couple of errands. Not bad weather for it, a little high on the humidity, but that is normal Iowa weather in August. It really has been nice for the Iowa State Fair so far. Mid 80’s and no rain. The farmers are wishing for rain and our grass is turning brown, but it should help the attendance at the Iowa State Fair. Don’t think I will be able to go this year. I just can’t do all the walking necessary during the day. It is a shame though I LOVE the fair. It is huge and there is so much to do and see. Maybe once they cure fibromyalgia!
Today I got to spend a little time shopping with my boyfriend. We didn’t need much but still it was time together instead of him being in front of the computer all day. I was happy for that.
I have a friend here visiting from Georgia this week. She just arrived in town tonight and is staying with her parents. She will then come and stay a couple of nights with us too so we can play some cards and act like teenagers again. I am grateful she had a safe trip here.
I am going to go watch a movie now – Walk The Line. It is a story about Johnny Cash and I think they did a good job on the movie, seen it many times before. Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude. Have a good night/day!
