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.  Thanks!)
~I'm happy because...
I've spent the entire week doing absolutely NOTHING!!!  Actually, I used the time to clean up the house a bit.  

I've gotten to sleep in most days!

I'm pet sitting my dad's beagle!

My rose bushes are blooming!

The weather has been beautiful!

I've gotten some new followers recently!  Welcome!
Don't forget to sign up for my Fourth Annual Doggone Dog Swap!  Click on the link for details.  The last time I checked, I had 8 participants and a few more who said they'd email me over the coming weekend.   I got to participate for the first time last year since there was finally an uneven number and it really was a lot of fun!  Who doesn't love to get mail that isn't bills or junk?  And just think, you might even make a new friend!
My mom is on vacation for a week or so, so I've been pet sitting my dad's beagle.  He really is a sweetheart.  I'm reminded several times a day how much bigger and stronger he is than my little chi's.  Since he's been here, there's never a dull moment.  He and my two boys think they need to be on top of me every moment of every day.  It's not so bad during the day (most of the time), but it's torture at bedtime!

I've discovered that my little Chico is apparently gay.  He thinks he needs to have sex multiple times a day with Scamp.  Scamp (the beagle) has been fixed, so he has no idea why Chico has been trying to mount him.  I've constantly been pulling them apart.  I can tell Scamp is getting fed up with Chico but he's been really patient with him.  I'm going to have to give Scamp a bath before he goes home.  
I'm still trying to catch up with everyone since I've been away for awhile. I've been around to almost everyone at least once, I think.  If I haven't, I will be soon!

I love Half-Full Fridays! I've been waiting to do this! Here goes my first list :)

I got the job that I needed for the summer yesterday.

I'm in a new relationship.

I have awesome best friends and we watched a movie and ate ice cream together last night.

The weather has also been gorgeous.

I got to lay out this past week.

I went to Yogurtland.

I'm reading an awesome book right now.

Hey Wylde One!
Wow, sleeping in is a wonderful way to start the day...especially if your Chi's and Scamp get to snuggle with you! Sounds like a great week to me. I hope you get tons more pawticipants for your swap. It's a blast!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

I am so excited for this year's swap! And congrats on being able to relax this week. I am a little jealous :)

Nadine, Chewy and Lilibell said...

Hi Sprinkles, we're back! After having issues with Blogger for the longest time, I'm finally able to get back on it, and believe me, I was going through some serious Blogger withdrawals, lol!

Anywho, just wanted to say that we sometimes think that Chewy is gay (not that there's anything wrong with that ;) ) because he just loves to hump my boyfriend, or any male who just happens to be around. Thankfully, it's never me.

At least you are having better weather than us, it is still freezing here.
Sounds like Chico likes Scamp a lot, LOL. Elliot has the same attachment to his teddy bear, eek!
Congrats on your new followers.

You are lucky to get to sleep in !!!

I like you did absolutely nothing! I did the same, some sitting, nice

Zuzana said...

Hi dear sprinkles, seems like you had a great week.;) Our roses are still weeks away from blooming, but our weather is just about to shift to summer.;)
I do not think Chico is gay, dogs can hump anything, even a human leg, hihi.;)
Hope your Sunday is great,

Velvet Over Steel said...

Glad you had a relaxing week!! I've been away a LOT the last few months. I'm trying to get back into a blogging routine. :-)

Funny about your dog. We had a dog once that too was 'confused'... LOL

Have a Beautiful new week!!
