My Favorite Things

You know, on a day by day measure, I thought I was having a pretty crappy week last week. Seriously, I was in a real funk. But looking back, I had lots of smiles. LOTS of smiles. And, while I posted and linked some of them, I thought I'd share some that you might have missed.

Hell, it's Saturday. We've got a little spare time.

Yesterday I opened a new account. WooHoo. There's been a ton of pressure at work to get new business and, well, it hasn't been an easy road. But yesterday I got an order from a small shop outside of Chicago. That is a good thing. Plus, I got an appointment to get product on the floor of a pretty big distributor. That is a VERY good thing. It made me smile.

I had lunch down at Fritz's. Good conversation, some laughs. Exactly what I needed. Then, as I was leaving one of the teenagers in town gave me a "good-bye" hug. I hadn't realized how very much I'd needed one of those.

I'm loving the fall. It's brisk but not cold and the colors are really beautiful this year. Maybe it's because I'm actually getting to enjoy them. Driving to visit customers this week, it was breath taking. And sitting out on the sun porch, watching the leaves in MY yard turn that beautiful red and gold? Yeah, breath taking is the right way to put it.

Did y'all see the news? Sarah (at Trying to Grok) made a pretty big announcement! And I'm so very happy for her and her husband! Congratulations!!!!

I think y'all are aware that Army Wife is a very dear friend of mine. And her children are, simply put, some of the brightest spots in my day to day. Yesterday she posted THESE pictures of Pink Ninja catching a fish. If you can look at these, at that sweet little girl with that beautiful smile and NOT smile back there's just something not right.

Speaking of adorable and pictures.....check out Raging Mom's granddaughter. Holy Cow! Talk about charming........

Anyway....those are a few things that made this week a little better than I thought it was. Kind of a cyber version of counting my blessings.

So tell me.....what were a few of the highlights in YOUR week??

I waited all day yesterday for our Saturday Question and it was not forthcoming.

Will we have a Sunday Question?

Gawd, I'm such a nag. ;)

This post IS the Saturday question.......

I just tricked y'all.

Well, that and I'm low on creativity right now. ;-)
