It Is Up To Me


My dear friend Jill is participating in 31 Days of Joy right now. 
I'm too "out of sorts" to officially participate now but I am so grumpy that I think I need to make a list of what brings me joy today.

1. Spending the morning with a friend working on projects.
2.  A veggie subway sandwich for lunch. 
3. Taking a long morning time walk with my Bono Baby. 
4. Getting my bangs trimmed. 
5.  My sweet husband who is making dinner for our dinner party tonight while I am laying on the couch writing this list.
6.  My sweet postal worker friends telling me I looked beautiful today. 
7.  Going to the soda store and receiving the best customer service ever! 
8.  Apple Brown Betty cooking in the crock pot.
9.  Talking to my Mommy on the phone and having her tell me that she wants Baby Coco to call her Momo (So she can say Momo for Coco)
10.  Looking forward to having friends over for dinner. 
(I'm going to go help now).

I grew up looking at a magnet on my parents fridge that read:

Joy
If it is to be,
  it is up to me. 

hugs,
Fritzi Marie

p.s. What makes you feel joyful today?

Cleaning out my closet today made me feel joyful. Not during the process, but looking at it all clean and organized afterwards! Watching Lauren car dance to "Who Let the Dogs Out" made me feel that way also. She's the only person I'd listen to that song for just so I can see her boogie!

ps...your cemetery walks sound AWESOME! You know how much I love that!

I love your joy list. I hope you had a splendid dinner party with your guests.
I must add "make apple brown betty" to my to-do list.

I love that, Kat. That is such a good mantra to think of. I need to think it more, too. I hope your dinner party was fantastic!!!
Love you,
