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.  Be sure to link up here once you've posted your list!  (This isn't a blog hop so please only link up if you've participated by posting your happy list on your own blog.  Thanks!)

~I'm happy because...
I finally got the lawn mowed!  I can't even remember the last time I mowed it, so it definitely needed it!

I got invited to visit a law school!  I have absolutely no plans to become a lawyer, yet I'm interested in checking out the school. 
 
My mom got me some beautiful flowers, for no reason at all!  My mom used to buy them for her, now she buys them for me. 
 
Another week down, another week closer to school!  I'm really surprised at how much I've missed it this summer. 
 
I've gotten over half of Chico's toenails clipped!  They grow so fast and he's a FIGHTER when we trim them, so I try to do one foot a day, but sometimes we only get a few toenails done a day.
*****
Another pretty dull week here.  Today's highlight is the neverending  laundry.  I've also spent the week reading a good book and am about to start another one later today.  Next week will be better, because I've got a few things planned.  It'll be nice to get out of the house for a bit. 
 
Shiver has been especially playful this week for some reason.  I've been taking advantage of it, because pretty soon, we won't have nearly as much time together.  He thinks the whole world revolves around him and he gets upset when he realizes that maybe it doesn't.

You have had a nice week. How lovely of your mum to get you flowers, those spontaneous pressies are the nicest ones of all. I have to pay the vet to do our dogs nails, it is like trying to wrestle with tigers!

Don't tell Finn the world doesn't revolve around her! When are going to visit the law school? That will be pretty cool.

Dull weeks are better than drama filled ones so it could be worse. Have a great weekend. :)

Happy Friday dear sprinkles.;) It seems like you always find something wonderful to be thankful for, glad you are looking forward to school.;)
I just read your comment at Coreen's, want to tell you that I think you are living your life, you are trying your best. That is what life is all about. You have lived in your own way - living fully is to do the best with what we got.;)
Have a great week my dear,
xoxo
