I'm compiling a list of things that make me happy. To catch up on previous posts in this series, please click here. And in no particular order, I continue!
#76. Running into people you know in a store. Since I've been back I've run into a few people I know while shopping yet haven't seen in years. It's not the ideal place to play catch-up, but it does put a smile on your face.
#77. Mom and I decided while shopping recently to build a gingerbread house. Mom says every year, "I've never built one of those and always want to." So we bought the easy way out - a box full of pre-baked gingerbread pieces and candy. We are going to build it on one of my days off after Thanksgiving. Hopefully it won't be a disaster. Even if it is, I'm sure we'll have fun.
#78. Scrapbooking. I don't do it as often as I'd like, and I'm definitely still a beginner but I do enjoy it.
#79. Jeff Dunham. I've seen him twice in person and had the best time ever. The funniest things are when he cracks himself up. And the last time I saw him, he brought out Bubba, and he hadn't done a skit with him in so long, he had to use note cards, only the audience knew the skit better than he did. His face was so red.
#80. Getting to visit with my great-uncle Glen and my great-aunt Marilyn. In my life, I don't think I've ever just sat and visited with them. A couple weeks ago, I got to do just that, two evenings in a row. They are wonderful people and it's a shame I hadn't truly visited with them before. It was so much fun listening to Granny and her little brother go on about their childhoods. I learned what a tomboy my Granny was as a kid and that she fought off Glen's bullies. Aren't they just too cute?!?!
