Happy Sunday, my Darlings! How are you doing this week? And how much do you have to be happy about or grateful for?
This week, I AM HAPPY that my latest dentist appointment went well. They’re never fun—sitting there while somebody pokes around with sharp metal objects? —but it wasn’t awful, either. No cavities, no x-rays, no more new fillings…I call that a win.
The best part, though, was that the hygienist who cleaned my teeth turned out to be as big a fan of The Walking Dead as I am! Oh, how much fun we had. Of course, she did most of the talking about the show while I mostly did that open-mouth mumble that’s ever so attractive.
Speaking of The Walking Dead, I AM HAPPY with the Season 4 finale that just aired. Oh, I weep tears of regret that we have to wait until October for new episodes, but I thought the finale was wonderful. It answered some questions from the past, brought up new questions for the future, & was intense enough to have me still running through it in my head.
I AM HAPPY that while I was out, I was able to pick up a new router, since my current one is giving me fits. A friend of mine with computer know-how recommended an AirPort router to go with my iMac…an AirPort Time Capsule if I wanted a router that also had gobs of storage space. Oh, yes, I do; so a Time Capsule it was. More than I wanted to spend, of course, but I’m one of those who believes that if you put money into a high quality product from the beginning, you’ll end up spending less on frequent low-quality replacements in the long run. Or as my daddy always said: “You get what you pay for.”
Of course, getting it hooked up & set up is a whoooooole other story.
After Madame Mommy Dearest lost one of the dogs she pet-sits on a regular basis last week, I AM HAPPY & extremely grateful that my darling Elder Kitty is still doing well. Every once in a while she gets picky about her food or seems to be moving a bit more slowly & I get concerned. But so far, so good; she keeps bouncing back, thank goodness.
I AM HAPPY with a bit of news I got this week that I will eventually be able to share, but just can’t at the moment. Gah, you have no idea how hard that is. But trust me when I say it’s a good thing & is going to be oodles of fun in the near future. I’ll tell you about it when I can!
And finally, I AM HAPPY that DishNetwork has given us another free preview weekend—HBO & Cinemax this time. They’re coming a little too close together for me, at least where DVD space is concerned, but I’m also excited to get the chance to add a few more movies to my To Be Watched queue. This time, I caught The Conjuring, The Hangover III, Snitch, The Bourne Legacy, & also tried to put Battleship & Rock of Ages on in the background every time it was on. I just love those two movies, but since I’ve seen them, I don’t want to waste DVR space recording them. (Even though I could probably watch them over & over to infinity. )
Nothing major, but good stuff. And sometimes it’s the little things that get you through the week.
So how about you—what’s going on that’s making you happy or reminding you to count your blessings?
