Ten on Tuesday

It IS Tuesday. But it feels like Monday. Must be because we had a 3-day weekend with the kids home yesterday. It was Martin Luther King day. But, that's not why they were home. It was a teacher workday at school. Their first semester just ended. Teachers need a day to close that out and get ready for second semester. It's always on Martin Luther King day. No matter what. We just don't say we are out of school for Martin Luther King. Guess it is politically correct that way. Any how it is Tuesday. Time for Carol Knits Ten on Tuesday.

10 Things I'm Happy About Right Now

1. I am happy I don't have to get up and go to work in the mornings. I'm not sleeping well and that would just suck.

2. I am happy for my French vanilla laced coffee.

3. I am happy that I have gotten back to books and getting time to read again.

4. I am happy that I have one recording of Richard's voice. I listen to it over and over. You can hear it here.

5. I am happy that I am making some progress on organizing my home. I might not be doing huge sections at a time. But I am at least doing some. 

6. I am happy that How To Get Away with Murder starts again soon. It is my new favorite TV show and I have missed it during the winter break.

7. I am happy that I have some freezer meals on hand. We ate the Chicken Broccoli Rice casserole for dinner last night. It was DELICIOUS!

8. I am happy that it is 42* outside and not 2*. Sadly, though, winter will be returning this week.

9. I am happy that the kids went back to school today. I love them. But I love a quiet house too. Sorry!

10. I am happy that I have just said "I am happy" 10 times. That counts for something doesn't it?

What are you happy about today? I'd love to hear.

  2. Our weather has been pretty moderate so far this year. After an early-ish start to snow, we've had a little break... but I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop!!

  4. So interesting to read your happy list. I listened to your husband's voice too. What a lovely keepsake. Saying happy ten times counts for a lot. My granddaughter had a four-day weekend because they they had MKL day AND mid-trimester conferences today. Looooooong weekend!

  5. I'm happy that it was a bit warmer today. I parked far away from all the shops I was going into and got some walking in! I'm happy with my new tops I found - the colors just make me smile! I'm happy with many of the books I'm reading right now - they are sucking me right in!

    1. I must get up the energy to take a walk. While the weather is decent. I sit in my chair and grab a book and out the window goes the idea of walking

  6. Well, first of all, I am happy I read your happy list! I am happy I got a hair cut today, it was driving me crazy! And I am happy the sun was shining and I got out for a walk today, there is snow coming this week. I am sort of happy about that, because fog and rain and mud in January is just gross!

  9. I love your list of happy's Paula. I always enjoyed the quiet house too though did enjoy when the kids and their friends were around. Its funny how the school calls it a teacher work day other than being off for Martin Luther King Day, especially since so many others, governments, etc., celebrate it and take it off. Good to hear too the hard work in the kitchen with the recipe cooking paid off and the food was delicious so far!

    1. I wish you speed towards that day when you no longer have to work! I would like to do something I think. But since my career is in nursing that is NOT something I feel I can do at this time. So instead I will sit, read, try to clean, and grieve!
