Know What’s Been Giving Me a Happy?

Lots of stuff! So I want to share it with all of you, just in case it does the same for you.

XKCD comics.

Disney songs! I just got a bunch to listen to in the car with the kids. They generally prefer the Beatles, KISS, One Direction or Green Day, but they’ll let me have this sometimes.*

Here’s one of my personal favourites (sorry about the ad):

The view on my walk yesterday. Today it’s snowing like a Head & Shoulders commercial, but yesterday was lovely:


…and look! I thought Zomie Woodchuck was lost, and that made me sad. Turns out the kids took him to Gigi and Poppy Cal’s house last month, so now he’s home safe. Yaaaay!


One more thing: This is my 100th posy on Disregard the Prologue. I don’t know why that would give you a happy, but it’s kind of nifty for me. 😀

What made you happy this week?

*They have somewhat eclectic tastes. I don’t complain about most of it.

    Glad you found your woodchuck. Losing stuff sucks, but having it come back is fifty shades of ice cream awesome. 🙂

    This week I was happy that: I managed to DVR the whole 2nd season of GAME OF THRONES during the HBO free preview, I changed my calendar’s page to find William, Daisy, and Mrs. P (DOWNTON ABBEY), my calzone pizza dough worked and was super nummy as normal pizza dough, and that the kids’ last day off from school was Friday.

    I love that song from Mulan!

    What makes me happy every day? Waiting to read your post! What made me happy this week: Easter Sunday services were awesome, and because it is over, I got to take both my days off…OFF!! That was rare and needed. Lying in bed listening to our two older granddaughters in their room in the morning. Noah is 7 and Evelyn will be two in July, and yet while we have been living here for four months until our place is ready, these too have shared a room happily…and their morning conversations warm my heart…and make me LOL. LOTS of snuggling with new granddaughter Ruby (our son is working on an all girl baseball team) made me happy. Having a nice actual talk with you on the phone instead of on the computer made me über happy….and takling to our boys always does. Being busy season, Steven wasn’t home until bedtime every night, but he came home for supper on Friday night and we snuggled up and watched tv. Oh…and although I am rooting for northern ontario in the men’s world curling championships….I got my yearly dose of watching Niklas Edin, the Swedish skip….sigh.

    100 is a good milestone. I was so excited when I got there. Congrats. And I love that Mulan song too. The BEST.

    I had a lovely Easter as well. And I do love that song from Mulan. And yes, 100 of anything is a great milestone!

    Aw, I would have cried forever if I would have lost my zombie woodchuck. That cartoon is hilarious! XD They’re going to make a movie, aren’t they….? Anyway, congrats on 100 posts. A fun benchmark. 😀
