Five things that made me happy today – 9/17/21

Those who choose, even on a small scale, to love in the midst of hatred and fear are the people who offer true hope to our world.

1. The clouds and drizzle arrived right on time in the middle of the night. It was in the mid-50s and not likely to change much all day. It quit raining about 2:00 pm and it will “maybe” start again about 8:00 this evening.

2. After breakfast I scurried down to the Medical Lab and got a blood draw for my appointment with the nephrologist next week. I hope the “goodies” I’ve been eating (like the occasional ice cream aren’t going to get me in trouble.

3. We had Kung Pao Shrimp with fried rice for lunch. Pretty good. It’s a frozen thing from Aqua Star, and it’s very acceptable.

4. When nobody knew if, when, or whether it would ever stop raining, we got an email telling us there wouldn’t be any ice cream today. But the person who was supposed to bring it didn’t get the message, so I looked out the window after I got home from the Wellness Center, and there she was with a full ice chest of ice cream sandwiches, and ice cream drumsticks. I went up and got drumsticks for both Al and me.

5. The maintenance guy came back today with all the instructions for the security system. Now, it’s making a record of whoever unsets it like it is supposed to. Hopefully the saga of the security system is OVER!

How about you? What made you happy today?
