What Made You Happy today?

Recommended Posts

Realizing that I am one of the truly blessed to have a job that I love, it makes me very happy. To even have a job is a blessing to all of us who have one.

that's so true! what is your job, pottedplant?

Did someone say FRIDAY?!?

Woohoo!

Have a great weekend everyone!

long weekend here, but as per usual, i am working the sun and mon ..... :(

daylight saving begins tonight, so i also lose an hours sleep. great.....

I spent the day putting polycarbonate roofing, shadecloth and pine blinds on my back veranda patio (I love my electric drill)

Add my cane furniture and I now have a wonderful outdoor room all ready for summer :D

It was tricky at times and it may not be perfect, but i'm still very proud of myself :bravo:

WOW! i am so impressed! i could never do something like that. it would be all crooked, or such. well done! :)

I already had existing framework, so it was just a matter of measuring, drilling and hammering. It wasn't quite that simple and I do have slightly uneven shadecloth, which I found the hardest thing to put up. The worst part of it all, was getting up and down the ladder squeezing inbetween the beams. Luckily the howling winds we've had lately eased for me yesterday. Oh .... and I do have a bruised thumb nail from a missed hammer shot .... hahaha .... I mean ouch!

I knew I was forgetting something...TGIF! (Even though I have to work every night for the next four days.)

I received happy news that a friend of mine is having a baby...her first!!! :)

And someone close to my mom has finally received some good news after being in the hospital for the last two weeks.

My job, STZ, is in a profession that everyone hates - the law. "The first thing we do is kill all the lawyers..." William Shakespeare But I'm not dead yet!!!!

Wait, wait, wait!

My Dad had a very rewarding career in law enforcement, and is still teaching young minds.

You go!!!

- Was up on the garden tractor this morning at 8AM and the entire property is cut and looking good

- My wife, son, daughter and I went out for a jog in Cow Bay along the ocean which is always great

- The sky is blue with not a cloud in sight

Just scored a new Marantz PM 6004 SL Amp and a new pair of Monitor Audio BX2 speakers for the lounge. Jeez I can't believe how good it sounds. Sorry to see my 20 year old Denon amp and Mission M34 floorstanders exiled to the loft. I will put the Missions on e bay if I can find a way of mailing them out !!

You know what ? I've been wanting a new set up for ages and the sound is quite unreal. When Mrs CP is out I am going to bang The Albert Hall DVD on and give the set up an outing in classic guitar Rock and Roll :thumbsup:

Not if they have musical taste. :)

Congrats, Sozo. I tried to do that once and quit (it involved first converting something from video). Technology makes me sad.

Oh wait - this is the happy thread: think of something happy! OK. The office is relatively quiet and the bosses are out of town. It's not much, but that's all I got.

Strider, is that your little cat on the previous page? She's a cutie.

No...a friend was just cheering me up.
