NBPM16 - Sunday Stuff - Seven Joyous Things

(c) 2008 Ms. Huis Herself at

A while back, Mary P. posted this positive-outlook idea: seven things that brought you joy this week. I like joyful things, and it's always nice to reflect on the positive, so here we go:
  1. The grocery store had Cadbury's Dairy Milk chocolate bars on sale when I was in, so I got a few in several varieties because they're yummy and remind me of Ireland.
  2. I made the best gravy I've ever made in my life on Thursday with a turkey breast and recipe from Cooking Light. YUM!!!
  3. We had Pumpkin's first ever school conference on Tuesday and the teacher said she's doing well academically and socially. That made me very glad, especially since I'd agonized a bit over whether or not to send her this year with her late birthday.
  4. We were in for Penguin's 18 month check-up last Tuesday as well, and she's doing swell. I don't have the numbers in front of me right now, but she was like 50% on height, 26% on weight, and still a teeny-tiny head. But it's always nice to hear things are looking fine. (Also got them flu shots. Pumpkin chose a shot over the up-your-nose-mist and didn't make a PEEP when they gave it to her! Brave girl!)
  5. My two most relied on pairs of jeans both got holes in them recently (boo!), but this afternoon I ran out to Kohl's and managed to fairly easily find replacements (on sale even)!
  6. Did I mention the shopping was without kids? That rates its own line.
  7. It was a noon release day on Friday, so no K classes, so we went to the children's museum. It was fun to see the girls enjoy it so much.
How about you? Need to focus on the positive and share some things that gave you joy this week?

It's so much nicer to let the happy things fill your mind than the worries, isn't it? Sounds like you had a pretty good week, all in all!
