It's time once again for my favorite upbeat linky party of the week, Mamarazzi's My Happy List @ Dandelion Wishes. Please join the party here. To tell you the truth, I need this party more than ever this week!
Friends, please note that our internet is very sketchy right now. We have service for maybe half an hour or an hour, and then it goes away again for several hours. Please be patient, and I will eventually get around to emailing all of you who have been so kind to leave comments. You all have touched me so much with your care and concern for Alabama and other Southern states. Bloggy friends are the very best!
My Happy List has a theme today: Water for Elephants
1. Fantastic Book: Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen is one of my all-time favorite books. If you have not read it yet, you are missing out! Good books make me happy!!! You can read my Literary Friday post about Water for Elephants here.
2. Delightful Tea Party: How about a Water for Elephants themed tea party? How much fun is this! This is my birthday weekend, so everything is all about *me* :D We are enjoying a full afternoon tea with tiny finger sandwiches and even smaller chocolate biscuits instead of dinner. Water for Elephants is set during the depression, and a popular dessert of that era was chocolate biscuits (not cookies, but Southern biscuits), especially in the South. Tea parties make me happy!
We must save room for popcorn because....
3. Tear-jerker Movie: We have passes to see Water for Elephants tonight starring Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon. Going to the movies makes me happy! I do not picture Reese as Marlena, but she is so talented that I bet her performance is Oscar-worthy.
I am so excited! I have many other blessings that have made me happy this week, real blessings, but I thought it would be fun to stick with a theme today.

Until next time...
