Happy and Grateful – Day 287

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.

What a day for a football game.  My favorite team was delayed almost 45 minutes due to nearby thunderstorms.  But once the game started it was all Cyclones and it ended up 45 to nothing.  That made me happy and was a good way to start the day.

I spent the day doing a little writing and some photo editing.  It was good to stay busy as tonight my mind is wandering more and making the time barely move.  Of course since I had a very short night of sleep (maybe 4 hours only) I am also feeling out of sorts because of that.  But I am grateful that it is the end of the work week for my boyfriend and so nothing to wake up early in the morning for.

Sorry if this is a little disjointed, I am just struggling to stay awake and get it done.  I hope to read a couple more blogs and then go to sleep.  Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude.  Have a good night/day!

Happy and Grateful – Day 267

The kids are all in school, there is a growing crisp in the air.  Football games and shorter days fill the weeks.  It is September.  I have accomplished another month of acknowledging my happiness and gratitude every day.  Join me as I continue my goal of one year on this journey.  Please join in with your happiness and gratitude in the comments or your own blog post.  No matter how bad the day is there is always something worthwhile in the day.

Another summer like day today.  I think the temps are supposed to drop to a more seasonal range this week.  I am ready for the cooler temperatures and opening windows back up… I miss hearing the birds sing.

Went to price tires for my boyfriends SUV today and also looked at TVs as mine is starting to go out.  Prices really seem to be pretty comparable the two places we have checked.  It was slow going out and about today though as I was paying for the shopping I did last night with pain.  I was still grateful I was not too stiff and sore to get the shopping done.

I had an unhappy moment tonight though and maybe one of you could give me a hand.  I have used PicMonkey for my free online photo editing, but tonight it seemed to appear that they no longer have the free offering and have to pay for a membership. Do any of you know of a free online service for editing that is EASY to use?  I have used PicMonkey for a long time and hate to have to look for something else, but I cannot afford that extra money right now.

For my happy moment it would have to be getting the gifts ready for my daughter’s birthday.  I love wrapping gifts and putting ribbons and bows on them… my cat also loves to “help”.  LOL

Fatigue got the best of me… sorry this is a little late.  Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude.  Have a good night/day!
