The August Happiness Challenge–Day 5

We interrupt our usual bookish posts to bring you the following:

Welcome to Day #5 of the AUGUST HAPPINESS CHALLENGE–where participants post each day in August about something that makes them HAPPY! The goal–to slow down and take time to appreciate the good things in life. Feel free to join in the fun!

I got home from work today to find that the painters had finished replacing and painting all the trim on my house today. With the threat of rain all day, I didn’t have much hope that the job would be finished–but it’s all done and it looks wonderful!

I live in a townhome community where most of the outside building maintenance is controlled by our homeowners association, and that can mean that the quality of work is unpredictable–sometimes jobs take ages to complete, and sometimes the workmanship isn’t the best. This latest experience was a good one all the way around–and that makes me really happy!

How about you? What’s making you happy today? Please share!

I love books, reading, writing, cooking, eating, reading while eating, and sharing thoughts about all of the above–plus a bit more! I usually post about topics relating to books and literacy during the week, and then participate in a variety of non-bookish memes on the weekend. Please feel free to join in! Some random things about me– –I have multiple bookshelves in every room of my home except the bathroom. They’re all filled to bursting. They help to make my house my home. –I have two cats who I love dearly, but who I definitely do NOT dress in human clothing. Ever. –I’ve never had a cavity. –I make a mean spaghetti sauce. –I’m a newcomer to yoga and I love it. –My day is not complete without a little chocolate.
