happy things | nov 30
I have a love-hate relationship with December.

I love the festiveness of the season, the music, the smells, the special foodie treats and the excuse for good times with loved ones. I hate the chaos, materialism and craziness that comes with it.

My personal antidote is Happy Month. I’ll be posting everyday (or as close as I can get) with the things that made me happy that day. It's a bit Pollyanna I know but having done it for a couple of years now it's amazing how well it helps keep my focus on what is really important in my life and what is just Dec madness. So here we go:

Things that made me happy yesterday: - Nov 30
1. Roses still blooming in the garden.
2. Spending time with Monkey and her Mom. (Nothing is better than a 13-day old that loves to snuggle. :>)
3. A long chat with Bridget about nothing in particular.

Oh my gosh, I love this idea. Mind if I follow your lead and do the same? December always makes me tear up, because I long for those who have departed.

Happy month sounds like a splendid idea!

My Dad has been using Skype a lot for meetings since we moved and it got me thinking I should try it out too, so if you want to skype sometime let me know!

Thanks! Oh that sounds like fun, let's do it! I don't stay logged into Skype so let me know what is a good time/day for you and I'll get on. I'm mostly bumming around Thrusday and Friday (sewing days!) if that works for you...

Oh I forgot I'll be at church for scrapbooking fellowship most of the day of Friday...

What a beautiful idea!! December is my favourite month though, and there's a lot making me happy about it. :)
