Happy Sunday, everyone! What kind of week have you had? A good one, I hope, filled with lots of stuff you’re grateful for & willing to share with the group. :stockings:
This week, I AM HAPPY in the New House. Really, really happy. :yay: The last time I was back to the old house, I thought I’d be swamped by memories & regrets & be depressed that I wouldn’t be living there anymore. Nope, not a one. It’s just a house to me now (give or take :seesaw: ) & this place already feels like home, even though I’ve only been here a few weeks.
I AM HAPPY that I got the lawn mowed one last time before winter. :bumpy: It’s kind of a large yard, & I was hoping I wouldn’t have to do it again, but then someone suggested I try to get it cut short before it started to snow…something about mold growing under the snow & having nicer, greener grass in the Spring if it wasn’t too tall through the winter. Granted, I’m not big about gorgeous, healthy lawns because they require more mowing & care, but still… The grass here is kind of rough & ugly—more of a prairie or mountain grass than soft, supple grass—so whatever I can do to help. And if it doesn’t work, then next year it can just sit there, six feet of overgrown grass beneath the snow, covered in yucky mold.
I AM HAPPY that—even though it started out as a Yikes! :mistletoeflash: —one of The Kittehs clued me in to a leak in the water tank connected to the furnace of the New House early on. I was able to call & get a friend to come by & stop the drip right away, then call & get someone from the heating company out here the next day to fix it properly. :snowman:
And finally—not New House-related at all—Galavant! Galavant, Galavant, Galavant! I AM HAPPY that this show is returning in January. If you didn’t see Season One, you missed a heck of a good time! It’s funny, it’s catchy, it’s got great songs, hilarious one-liners, & a sexy lead. I can’t wait! I also can’t wait to get the first season on DVD. (Hint-hint, ABC. :elfwink: )
And all of that pretty much makes me happier than a turtle on an escalator! :grinch:
How about you? What are you thankful for this week? Happy about? Ready to share? :kissletoe:
We’re here, all bundled up in our Christmas pajamas with a warm glass of milk, just waiting to be happy with you!
