OK people, you know the drill! Working on 100 joys STAT! Had to take some time off – late night yesterday and the hubz needed some attention. Only 83 joys left to go!
I love milk. I love it in cereal. I love it ice cold with Oreo cookies. I love it alone, I love it with dinner, and I loooove it in hot cocoa. Love. It. I especially loooove Oberweis milk. It just tastes better. No growth hormones, no other funny business – just 100% straight-from-the-cow deliciousness. Yum. When I drink milk, I am in my happy place.
Computers make me happy. Can you believe that there was a time when people had to TYPE letters on a TYPEwriter?? It blows my mind. I’ve asked people who worked in offices before computers about what they did without computers and their eyes glaze over as though they are remembering a time that even their brain doesn’t want to recall. “You know, we just, um, got stuff done. I don’t know.” Did people work before computers??
Where do I begin? Voicemail, email, text messaging, pictures, video, applications… what did we do without smart phones?? How, heavens to Betsy, did we stand in line at the grocery store without something to fiddle with so that we don’t have to talk to other annoying people standing in line? But even more importantly, how developed are our brains that we can use just our thumbs with the skill and precision to get to level 22 in Brick Breaker? I mean, we as the human species have really come a long way! And just when I thought life couldn’t get any better, I got a new work phone and it has SODUKO on it!!!!! JOY TO THE WORLD!!!
Chocolate chips. Yeah, you think I’m going to wax poetic about all the things you can do with chocolate chips, specifically Nestle’s semi-sweet chocolate chips (cookies, flourless chocolate cake, peanut butter spoons topped with chocolate chips, chocolate covered Oreo cookies…). But no, I’m not going there. In our house, chocolate chips are certainly for cooking and baking and the spreading of happiness – but chocolate chippies are quick, sweet smooches. Ahhh… joy!
Sweet friends (from our Bible Study Cookie Exchange):
#23 – Ms. Tammy, always in action!
#24 & #25 – Baby Gianna and mama Dorothy
Those were all the wonderful ladies that were able to make it tonight to our cookie exchange. And they are a joy! With our combined ADD, it’s hard for us to stay on track in conversations, but someone always remembers enough to help us find our way back to what we were originally talking about. Not pictured were joys #27 (Allison), #28 (Kim), #29 (Nikki), #30 (Jackie) and #31 (Caroline). They are such blessings and joys to me!
