Half Full Friday!

Half Full Friday is a series of weekly posts that Eyegirl originally started in June 2009.   We believe that a lot of our happiness is determined by our attitude about the things that happen to us.   So by participating, I'm deciding to see the glass as half full instead of half empty; I'm choosing to concentrate on the positives instead of dwelling on the negatives.   The Half Full Friday posts are a way to do just that.   They're a list of the things in my life that have brought me happiness over the past week.   I'm determined to find something good in each day.   Are you?

For the next week, I'd like to challenge each of you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day.
~I'm happy because...
My mom mowed the lawn for me!  In the rain!

I got an A in History!  My final grades for the semester are an A and 3 B's.

I've gotten  to sleep in almost every day this week!

I got a wonderful gift in the mail from the fabulous ~KS earlier this week!

I've started a little bit of spring cleaning!  Very little bit but hey, at least I started!

Shockingly, it didn't rain at all yesterday!

I've received numerous comments from various bloggers saying that Half Full Friday is their favorite post of the week.  If that's the case, why not join in?  I've hosted it for awhile now and the only one who ever joins me is Velvet Over Steel.  There's plenty of room for everyone!  I couldn't add the link this week because I finally upgraded to Internet Explorer 9 yesterday and I'm not impressed with it.  For one thing, it won't accept the HFF link for some reason.  I tried to uninstall the program but I can't even see on my system where it's even been updated.  You know how you can check your updates and stuff?  It's not even listed.  Gotta figure out how to remove it over the weekend.  Not liking IE9 at.all.

So today I'll be volunteering.  I'm kind of curious as to what they'll have me doing.  Usually I just go in on Thursday's but lately they've been telling me they have too many people and don't need me.  Yesterday morning when I spoke to them, the girl said something to the effect of, "But you are coming in tomorrow, right?"  To which I replied, "I wasn't aware I was supposed to but if you need me, I can come in."  They don't typically hand out food on Friday's so I'm wondering why they need volunteers today.  Guess I'll find out in just a little bit.

Tomorrow I have to get up at the crack of dawn and help out with the other organization I volunteer for.  Since I've started school, I've done exactly jack squat for them and feel like I really need to get a move on since the big event is coming up in less than two months so this will be part of my contribution.  Not looking forward to getting up so early but hopefully I'll raise a lot of funds for them.

And then on Sunday probably, I'm thinking of making cupcakes.  Just for something relaxing to do and for something extra fattening to eat.  Because I want to put any weight back on I might have lost walking a zillion and a half miles (one way!) across campus 3x a week for 4 months as quickly as possible!  LOL  And of course, I'll be adding extra sprinkles.  Because everything is better with sprinkles...

Awesome grades - you should be very proud of yourself, we sure are!!! And nothing like having a great mom to come and mow your lawn - that was very sweet of her.

Cupcakes??? with sprinkles??? Can we come over and lick the bowls?

Oh yes, everything is better with sprinkles, even my Fridays!;))
So happy for your good grades and that it has not been raining on you.;))
Luckily, I do not have to mow the lawn as our lawn is shared between 5 houses and the men in the 4 houses do it for me.;))
Have a lovely weekend dear friend,
xoxo

Mr. Pip said...

Hurray for no rain, good grades, and moms who mow the lawn!

Your pal, Pip

Velvet Over Steel said...

Hugs,
Coreen XOXO

Wow, an A! Sleeping is great too. I love spring cleaning...sorta

Sarge said...

Hey Wylde One!
Wow, great list this week. A huge big CONGRATS on those pawesome grades! Sounds like you traded the mowing for the cleaning. I think maybe I'll try your Half Full next Friday. You don't mind if I step in on your great idea?!? Cupcakes with sprinkles, made by Sprinkles would be extra yummy!
Grr and a Drooling Woof,
Sarge, COP

Meg said...

Everything is looking up for you. What a rocking mom you've got to mow the lawn for you...in the rain!

Also how awesome is the grades, sleeping in and cleaning. You are incredible!

George the Lad said...

Wow well done on your history grade and the rest ;)
Cupcakes sound lovely, by the way that's mom saying that!!!
Now onto Pips question, I do Saturday STEPS there's a clue :), Pip is terrified of steps!!!
He was very brave and stood at the top of some just for my birthday photo.
I have followed pip a long time and found the questions very hard!! I put it down to me following so many blogs!!!
Have a good week
See Yea George xxx

Yay for an A in history. I hate history. So terrible at it! That cupcake looks yummy!

Zona said...

You know this is my favorite post of the week - since I have Friendly Friday, maybe I'll convince mom to add it to her blog?!?

Wags,
Zona

Oh, what a fun post! I'm sorry I've been absent for so long - the weather's been nice and as you know, I've been gardening...but now it's getting hot again and I might play your "Half full Fridays" because I believe in positive reaffirmations!

Congratulations on getting an A in History!

Running around on campus is good exercise, isn't it? I remember when I went to college (eons ago) I took some night classes and every time I went to look for my car, I swore someone stole it because somehow I always ended up on the wrong parking lot by going out a different door than when I came in... very frustrating!

You are right about adding sprinkles to cupcakes - they are definitely more fun ... just like you ;-)

Have a wonderful week,
Love,
Doris and the Gizz!
