Things that made me smile today

My husband calling me to dinner and sitting down to a yummy surprise. (I have this at the top of the list because it means that much to me).

Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia Fro-Yo.

My air-conditioned oasis of a living room. (It went up to 102 today).

My frog and turtle sprinklers. (See, I told you I had a froggie).

Jack Johnson singing this song. (Today was the first time I heard it).

George. Every day.

How great I looked when I tried on my bathing suit this afternoon.

That last one was a lie. I just wanted to make sure you’re still out there.

You’re still out there, right?

Being able to take a photo of my cat this afternoon, who was too hot to get up and run away. (For a change).

Rescue Me is on tonight.

Knowing that in just 8 days, I’ll be spending a long weekend with good friends that I met through blogging.

I am so looking forward to that.

And that’s my list for today. I may have more before the night is through.

So what made you smile today?

Deb said...

Country Girl said...

God Bless Ben and Jerry. That's all I'm sayin'. I can't indulge in the high octane stuff but I sure love their fro yo.

Sorry to hear of your humidity down there in TX, Deb. Today was very low humidity but wow.

I just worked at Dairy Day at our local. fair and we had many Ben & Jerry sponsored ice cream eating contests going on. So much fun and delicious ice cream. Although I watched SO many people shovel ice cream down their throats as quick as they could, I couldn't try any myself-lost my appetite for it that day :) But it's back now

Jen at Cabin Fever said...

You know what's weird? I definitely wrote a post about smiling today too!

Mary said...

I think you beat us by one degree... I ate TWO Italian ices today, but would rather have had Cherry Garcia -- even the "fro yo." :)

Julie Harward said...

I love the cute! And the cat...I am smiling at the good weekend we had and time to blog today! :D

Hilary said...

I wrote a post about road rage, and wanting to blow up the ice cream wagon.

BB said...

Nice idea! Also love your header this month (beats my freaky emus!).

Things that made me smile so far:
- my daughters buck-toothed, dimpled grin on seeing me first thing this am.
- my son's weird haircut (pics at my place soon)
- the fact that we are about to have THREE days off and visit friends...


Low Tide High Style said...

I love your list! And that song is awesome, I really like Jack Johnson and haven't heard this one yet!

What made me smile today?

I finished my first story for Romantic Country...just have captions to do! And I had good friends over for lunch! Plus Mr. Tide helped me clean to get ready. I'm still smiling at my wonderful day!

Enjoy our long weekend with your bloggy friends!

Kat aka the long winded follower!

Ya... those wicked bathing suits... I think I still have one around here somewhere but I'm sure it no longer fits... *sighs*


Country Girl said...

Laughing with my husband while we're watching Wipe-Out, Couples Edition.

And looks like blogger is up to its tricks again. I opened this thinking I'd be the 4th comment here because only three were listed on the post page. Blogger!!

Andi said...

You made me smile today, not much else. So I thank you. The frog and turtle got me. :)

Hilary said...

A great list and I'm so looking forward to hearing about your upcoming blogfest.. from all sources.

I'll bet you do TOO look great in your swimsuit.

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

This did! This made me smile. Lots.

Char said...

Chocolate Cat said...

Finding out that one of my work collegues who has gone home to visit her family in India is getting married next week, she will be so happy and excited and hearing the news certainly made me smile!!

Leenie said...

Cherry Garcia RULES!

Big smiles from reading your blog. Love that melted cat pic.

Peppermint Ph.D. said...

2 more tomatoes today that are turning red

my little dog smelling like baby powder when I picked her up from being groomed

my cat Uh-Oh snuggled at my head when I opened my eyes this morning

lots of happiness out there to be found...thanks for reminding us to look for it :)

Sweetpea said...

Maybe we should consider a *blog fest* out WEST?!

p.s. I no longer o-w-n any swimming apparel.

foolery said...

THIS did. This made me smile. And now I want ice cream.

And I have two photos of you in a bathing suit and the fanciest hip wrap I've seen in a while -- from last year's BlogFest -- as evidence of how great you actually do look at the beach. You were positively glowing. Still my favorite photos from the whole affair, for real. So looking forward to mid-July!

Cait O'Connor said...

Your cat photo and the last pic are just fabulous, thanks for sharing and also for your things that made you smile, wonderful all of them.

I fell for the swimsuit one and was feeling green!

Jayne said...

What a great list! How fun that you will get to meet some Bloggers. :c)

Things that make me smile:
Watching the birds fly through the sprinklers.
Looking out at my newly restained deck railing we did yesterday.
Sipping coffee this morning and reading Chronicles of a Country Girl.

mrs mediocrity said...

Seeing Dave Matthews in concert. A first. And well worth the BIG dollars we had to pay for tickets.
But I missed Rescue Me, I will have to catch up before next week.
And Cherry Garcia/Chunky Monkey--it's a tie.

Mental P Mama said...

This made me smile! So glad to see there is a frog in the mix. See you next Thursday!!!!

Jill of All Trades said...

What made me smile yesterday was helping Clayton eat an ear of fresh corn, priceless. (Check out the video on my blog.)

Driftwood and Pumpkin said...

Great list, my friend! Our dinner last night made me smile...the first time I had sweet corn off the cob this summer. Yummo!

The JR said...

My husband saying "I really love you"

My goofy show mare - igging me in her stall and then jumping forward, pinning her ears and giving me her goofy face (call it strange - but thats playing for her)

Same gas powered horse running around pasture

My silly house cats doing too many numerous things to list

Marilyn said...

Daryl said...

Did you see Denis on The Daily Show? There was a clip with YOUR BOYFRIEND in it ...

ToonMan said he watched the show with Jack sitting on his lap .. apparently Jack likes it too!

karen said...

Love you Blog, and your list...Your photography...and your DH's makes me smile...and wish I were half as talented!!
I am also a HUGE fan of the B&J Cherry Garcia Fro-Yo...cannot buy it because it calls my name and I eat the whole thing in one sitting!!

What else made me smile...getting out of work early because I was called in in the night for a couple of emergencies.
Also a colleague called me "skinny"!!!! Diet and exercise is working, I'll be smiling for weeks!! :)

big hair envy said...

Your post is what made me smile today! Thank you:)

becky up the hill said...

a creamy white frog hiding in my Hydrangeas, I took his picture!

Gail said...

I am trying to imagine the ice not want to look it up and ruin my imagined decadance.

The song was upbeat and not what I was expecting, I don't know what I was expecting but it livened up the room.

George always makes me smile and so do you.

Deb said...

Ben & Jerry's - YUM :)

We are experiencing the same heat - my bedroom air conditioning at night makes me happy -

Today was my first zumba class - that really made me smile. It was such fun and that hour went by so fast!

Enjoy your long weekend!

ELK said...

tahankfulness in photos and a list to smile nice to stop here..I am thankful for my garden and the quiet moments to water with a hose...

GailO said...

Finally got to enjoy your fantastic I have to go out shopping for some of that Cherry Garcia frozen yogurt!

It was 102 in RI on Tuesday too...and that is VERY unusual...record I'm happy for AC and the fact that we have a sail boat to escape to...
