Happy Thoughts

Thankful for the little things that filled my week....
  1. getting on an antibiotic after being sick all week.
  2. hours of beautiful snowflakes floating to the ground
  3. a couple of IM chats that made me laugh, roll my eyes, reconsider my opinion, reflect deep in thought and smile until my cheeks hurt.
  4. that cherry-almond scent of Jergens lotion
  5. a cheery new plant that jumped in my grocery cart and said, "Take me home!"
  6. a new laptop purchased with my own money
  7. enjoying the Christmas tree another week instead of worrying that it didn't get it put away before I got sick
  8. pretty pasta in freshly washed canisters

"I'm thankful for laughter, except when milk comes out of my nose!"

Woody Allen

  8. So sorry you are not feeling well. Hope the medication helps. I too am blogging on a new laptop. We bought a small one (13 inches)to make it easy to travel with. It is a little tricky to get used to. Good luck with yours - you deserve it!

    I have a clearanced Christmas cactus sitting on my kitchen counter that is making me happy.

  13. Christian ~ if you haven't noticed by now, I have a weakness for those pretty houseplants at the grocery. :) But I like to think that they have a weakness for me and beg to come to my little home for some TLC. :)

  17. I love the cherry-almond scent of Jergens lotion... reminds me of my mom's scent when I was a young girl. There is nothing like a fresh, pretty plant to bring warmth and cheer to a winter home. And, I'm glad you are feeling better!

  18. Tanna ~ that jergens lotion has beem around forever, hasn't it? I'm glad they never changed it to 'new and improved' :)

  19. So sorry you've been sick. Hope you're doing better now. Love your sparkling canisters with pasta. I did a little more splashes of red in my kitchen this week.

    I had to laugh at Woody Allen's quote, as that happened to me on a date with a young man when I was attending Biola College ~~ I was so humiliated....Then I met Don...so that was history.

  20. This would have been perfect for Half Full Friday!

  33. Love the image, what a great way to store pasta.;) I do the same.;)

  34. Hope you are better soon.

    I've been treated for walking pneumonia, but I'm still coughing. My TX crowd when home and to the doctor...they are all being treated for pertussis. I hope I didn't catch that from them. I read it can take 6 to 8 weeks to get over that.

    Might be a very good thing that Rachel's back got so bad the week they were here. It kept her and the babies from coming over to visit.

    Don't you just love it when a pretty plant jumps into your cart and says, "take me home?"

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love your list, Betsy! I had never thought of Jergens as having a cherry scent, but you are right! I hope you are warm and cozy today! We are expecting snow and ice!...hugs...Debbie

  36. Stevie ~ walking pneumonia and pertussis...both sound awful! Hope all of you are recovered soon!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh, hope you're feeling much better! Love that quote by Woody; can just see it happening!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I hope you are feeling better! It is hard to get rid of this horrible bug!

    ReplyDelete
  39. glad I wasn't drinking milk when I read that quote. LOL. good list there. I really should put my meagre pasta rations in a clear container I think. you know, I already have a plant like that and love it. good for you.
