Okay, I totally blame this on Chris! He said that concentrating on happy things in order to update his blog made him happier each day, so I thought I would finally bit the bullet and start another blog! I have a hard enough time updating the blogs I have to begin with, but I am excited to see if this actually does make a difference!
Happy Item Number 1: I finished a book! I read a big little life: A Memoir of a Joyful Dog by Dean Koontz. I have a thing for memoirs about dogs. Books about dogs period!
Happy Item Number 2: Reading this book gave me a chance to remember my dogs. I am a dog person and I really wish I was in a place in my life where I could have another dog, but it was fun to remember Sandy and Shelby as I read through this book. Especially where they were both golden retrievers and this was a book about a golden retriever.
Happy Item Number 3: I haven't had to go outside yet today! I will have to eventually, but considering that with the windchill we have been hovering between the minus 20 and minus 30 range Celsius, I am very happy to be hibernating inside.
Happy Item Number 4: I am about to go make scrambled eggs with ham, red pepper, onions, and mushrooms because the charming comedian is sleeping because he has to work tonight, so this meal is really like breakfast for him. I really like my scrambled eggs, though!
Today is only about half over, so there will hopefully be more as the day progresses.
First, though, I think I am going to go email people and tell them that this blog exists... Later tonight I will fix up the formatting. I just chose one of the free templates offered, but it really should be purple!
On another note, what does it say about the world that Chris could call his blog 'A Year of Good Stuff' and it not be taken, but I wanted to call mine 'Purple Monkey Dishwater' and it was taken...
