Ten things that made me happy this week! | It Started in Oxford

Ten things that made me happy this week! | It Started in Oxford.

While I was thinking of my happy things and typing them up I thought of a challenge. There is no banner nor prize from me; there is only the good things you think of and the warm fuzzies you get from taking a couple of minutes out of a busy day, a day which might not be quite as happy as you would like it to be.

The challenge? Reblog or Press this post, or the one from It Started In Oxford and give us a short list, only five things, of things which made each of you happy this week.

It could be a kitten’s purr or a friend calling just to say hi or something someone said which made you think. It doesn’t really matter WHAT it was that made you happy, it only matters that it made you happy for that moment in time.

So, who’s going to take me up on this challenge and give us a list of things which made you happy this week? I know I’m looking forward to reading them :).

I promise, it WILL take your mind off what’s depressing in the news these days for a few minutes :).

My happy things.

  1. I actually, for the first time in several years, took, some vacation days! I didn’t really do anything but the most important things is that I was NOT at work!

  2.  Helping my son fill out an online job application.

  3. Discovering Bead Weaving! I’m not happy with the loom but that is easily solved, I hope, by visiting a different craft store or ordering online or maybe asking my brother to put something together for me.

  4.  New Restaurants! Northern Tai is wonderful!

  5.  Craft stores. Even when they don’t have the venting or air conditioning on I can still get lost in them for hours, even if I don’t buy anything.

  6.  Old television series! I started rewatching, again, Andromeda.

  7. Kevin Sorbo. ‘Nuff said.

  8.  Buckwheat Cereal. Yeah, I know, how can cereal make you happy. I don’t know, but it does, especially since my local grocery stores don’t seem to carry it any more 😦 so I have to go to a health food store to get it.

  9.  Sunshine, chirping birds and coffee.

  10. These 10 things that make me happy posts :).

The world is filled with so much negativity, especially if you watch or listen to the news, that having to stop and list some things that make you happy also makes you think. You think about something positive, something which might not make the news, even if it is just for the few minutes it takes you to type something like this up.
