Five things that made me happy today – 9/15/22

Whatever music you beat on your drum there is somebody who can dance to it.

1. It was in the mid 50s and cloudy when I got up. I know there are some warm days still to come, but it feels like the weather is settling in for the “Big Dark”. The sun came out about 1:00 pm and the temperature got into the upper 60s.

2. Today is the International Day of Peace. I think the most important way to bring peace is to do away with our scarcity mentality. I don’t have to limit other people’s comfort just to have some of my own.

3. Good workout today at the Wellness Center (while it was still cold and before the sun came out.) I’m so glad I have that available.

4. Burger King Whoppers for lunch today.

5. FTJ brought happy hour this afternoon. It was scheduled for the Gazebo but it hadn’t warmed up by noon, so the hosts decided they would bring the goodies door-to-door. No sooner had they made that call than the sun came out and it started warming up. Most folks ended up going to the Gazebo after all. The socialization is as important as the food and drink.

How about you? What made you happy today?

  1. Three classes of second graders who not only answered questions about last week’s book, but remembered lessons from books I read to them last year when they were first graders. I was blown away. These children are amazing.
