My Happy List #46 and an Update on Holly

Tuesday, March 13, 2012


Today's list is rather random!

My Happy List

1.   Shanley Belle is home from college for Spring Break.  I am so happy to have her home! Shelley's Spring Break is not until next week, so we will not be taking a trip this year.

2.   My mom gave me the cutest little sign for my office area in our kitchen. Surprises always make me happy!


3.   I spent some time talking with Holly last week.  She has started her chemo, and I want you all to know that you have made her so happy by sending her cards.  I was so happy getting a chance to catch-up with her, and it made me happy to hear how much her attitude has improved.  The kindness you have shown Holly has made me so very happy!

4.   I love daylight savings time!  I like having more light in the afternoon.  It means I have great light later in the day for painting.  Lighter afternoons make me so very happy!

5.   I just finished a healthy cooking course, and I learned so much!  Learning new things makes me so very happy!  I want to take the next course that will start in April.  In the coming weeks, I will be sharing recipes and other tips I learned while taking the course.

What is making you happy this week?  Join Mamarazzi, and share your happy!

Until next time...

  1. Spring break makes me happy, too! And I hate the time change, but I love that it's light out later.

  2. Love your happy list... I also love that sign, it is so nice and colorful!

  3. Great Happy List! I would love to take a healthy cooking course. We have actually looked in to it. How fun!

  4. I think if figured out what was the problem that I could not my Chrome browser I had to enable third party cookies....

  5. Great happy list! I love that sign! I have one for my daughter that's kind of like that but it's pink and says "princess" on it. And I completely agree about daylight savings. I wish they'd have daylight savings and just keep it around all year!
    Nice to "meet" you! :)

  6. You have so much to be happy for, your list made me smile! I'm happier with the longer days, too. I couldn't believe it was still light out at 7:00 p.m. last night!

    Have a great week!


  7. That course sounds perfect. Yes please share. I just got done sharing my daughter's chicken stips and fries while we were out for Tuesday school. Very bad. I have a physical at the end of the week. Nothing but salads and chicken the rest of the week for me.
