Life is all about the simple things

A bunch of simple things that made me happy

1. Last night finally realizing that the gym has fantastic air conditioning, I actually enjoyed my workout because it was so cool and lovely in there.

2. Poking my head out the window to watch a great firework show last night - it was nearly 10 minutes long! I have no idea what it was for - but it was beautiful!

3. Seeing someone roller skate past me this morning while I was waiting for the bus - I did a double take - I haven't seen someone on roller skates in years! And I admit I did giggle a bit when she ran herself straight into a wall to stop before coming to a curb because she couldn't stop properly.

4. Laughing to myself as the bus driver pulled over to run in and get a paper & a bottle of water in a little convenience store this morning - I'm pretty sure they're not supposed to do that - but he was on time picking me so I don't mind!

5. Coming to work to find my friends have left me 2 little fudge bars on my desk and it's FRIDAY!

6. Random pictures from home that my Mom sent me:)

When I go home we end up doing these Monique with ____ (everyone) pictures.
They are nice to have though:)

I love old pictures - I'm always amazed about how I look (never as bad as I imagined at that time) and I love to see old friends and family members...

And I sometimes wonder about the crazy little things that make me smile too. (but I'm the only child - and for me, that a reason to smile if any!) :)

Fun seeing some of the photos from our houseboat trip in June on your blog. Also, it's true we do have a lot of "Mo and ... photos." We did take a lot of "Murray and..." photos, too. I want to be fair to my son-in-law. We love him, too. XXOO Mom
