Day 22 of 365

So much for posting everyday!  This pic is actually  meant to be for Day 18 or 19, but it's making it's way on here for today, Day 22, because when I look at it, it does make me happy still!  This picture was taken via Joel's cell phone and texted to me over the weekend.  He's on vacation this week in Florida and shared this lovely pic with my envious self, stuck in the north with cold, snow and freezing rain. Goodbye 70's, hello Motherland weather! 

Even though it hasn't been a full week since Joel has left for the bachelor party, seeing him here makes me smile (even though a gator is right behind him!).

Day 17 of 365

I've found that people are automatically in a better mood when we're graced with a few warm sunny days in the middle of winter.  I know I'm automatically happy when Doug Hill says: "It's going to be a high of 70 tomorrow!"  and it's mid-February!  It's days like this that God gives us to help us make it through the cabin-fever season.  As I write this, my work day has come to an end and I'm sitting outside of Starbucks enjoying my afternoon in the sunshine!  A customer just walked by, wearing shorts mind you, and asked me: "Would you rather have a few teaser days like today, or not have any of this at all until winter is officially over?"  Teaser days for me aplenty!  He agreed :).  I hope you all enjoy your weekends wherever you may be.  I will be heading back to the Motherland for some family time, a baby shower, and a dentist appointment.  Here's to a joyful weekend!

Day 16 of 365

Another beautiful day in the nation's capital!  Can you see that the sun is shining?  Well, it is! Tomorrow will bring another nice day, which I hope to exercise my privilege of working at home by working at Starbucks outside!

Day 15 of 365

This picture is showing 2 of my happiest moments yesterday, though it's hard to tell.  I got home and realized we had another 60 degree afternoon (showing the outside), and second, it's Charles - he almost always makes me happy!  This is a pic of him intently gazing at birds and squirrels I'm sure.  He looks so content and old here, but seconds later he was running around like a maniac-kitten that he is!

Day 9 of 365

My beloved Sheetz Hot Chocolate, need I say more?

Day 8 of 365

I forgot to take an actual picture of yesterday's 'thing that made me happy' so I had to go searching for one online instead.  This is my beloved Arc Trainer, which I was first introduced to at Penn State's White Building.  We fell out of touch over the years and have recently reconciled....meeting up for 5 PM jaunts at my neighborhood's gym.  This little guy packs a big bunch for me in just 30 minutes... burning 700 calories, as opposed to my former lover, the elliptical, where I could only reach just over 400 in that same amount of time.  I love it so much because I really feel as though the tension has left my body by the time I'm done with it.  Here's to you Arc Trainer, and many more 5 PM dates!

Day 7 of 365

An organizer's dream machine!  Who knew how much I'd love this little gadget.  Thanks to a coworker who has left our office, I am the proud owner of this handy Brother label maker!  You can see the first label I made: "Pegasys".  Now I won't have to mess up my pretty file folders with the Sharpie....

Day 6 of 365

I love Tosti Asti Champagne.  Charles loves their 'hat'..... while he sleeps on my Vancouver Olympics gloves.

Day 5 of 365

I love bird watching.  Lately we've been having a few cardinals and blue jays hangin' around outside, and they are so fun to watch.  They're both such beautiful birds.  So I got the bright idea to get a bird feeder - I've already had the pleasure of seeing the little guys eating out of it!

they like to hang out on the compost container
not cool Squirrel man, not cool

Charles HATES having his picture taken.  Can you tell?  But Cha-Man still makes me happy just the same.. no matter how annoyed he looks :)

The 365 Project

A friend of mine on Facebook (shout out to Amanda should you ever stumble to this blog) started doing this 365 Day Project.  She explained to me that each day you post on Facebook something you've eaten, bought, did, whatever... throughout one year.  I liked this idea a lot, thinking it'd be a great way to actually SEE your memories throughout one year.  I decided to participate in this 365 Project, but with my own spin on it.  Each day I'm going to post a picture of something that made me happy that day.  So here goes!

Yesterday (Feb 2), I had lunch at one of my favorite sandwich shops....

The Turkey Slim goodness!
