Happy and Grateful – Day 284

The month of October is upon us.  Fall is in full swing with the leaves gathering on the lawn… maybe a pile or two to run through even.  The evenings are getting dark earlier as the days grow shorter.  And a few of us look forward to a good scare with Halloween coming this month.  Everyday has at least some small portion of good in it.  I am looking for that good with this challenge to find my happiness and gratitude every day.  Join in with the challenge by commenting or writing your own blog… let’s find some goodness today.

Aside from a few clouds it was another picture perfect fall day.  The trees are really starting to pop with color and I wish I had the time and energy to get out and take some pictures.  Maybe I can sneak out this weekend… so far there is nothing planned for Saturday or Sunday.

My mood is a little better today.  Of course I didn’t have as much down time today either.  It was coffee day for my Dad so that took up the first half of the afternoon.  I did get some time this afternoon to get ready for another doctor’s appointment coming up.  They now have a pre-visit checklist of sorts you can do on their website with any changes in meds or health concerns.  I am hoping that saves lots of question time when I go in next Monday.  I really like the way the clinics around here are going to online sites where you can manage your health records.  It is nice to be able to get results online without having to wait.  I can also message my doctor with concerns.  I am grateful they have this service.

Tonight we splurged a little and went to Perkins for dinner.  It is not a huge expense on Wednesdays as I am on their mailing list and get a buy one get one free entrée coupon every week for Wednesdays.  It always makes me happy when I can save money like that and the good comfort food is an added bonus.

I am feeling pretty tired tonight so it is time to stop the fingertips from talking much more.  Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude.  Have a good night/day!
