Enough whining already--things that make me happy!

I have noticed that I've been whining and complaining a LOT lately so enough of that!
In honor of it being Friday, I thought I'd do a post of things that make me HAPPY! Of course there are so many things that do make me happy, but I am gonna just list a few today.
My Mammaw Frances gave me this yellow Pyrex bowl. It has become one of my treasures as I have taken up the art of baking Sourdough bread! You breaka my Pyrex, I breaka you face! haha
I love my new CTE shirt! It has made me happy today just to be able to wear something NEW for a change! HAHA!
This is my scrapbooking corner in my classroom. It's nowhere near what I would like for it to be, but I am in the process of actually having the time to do something with it!

My friend Jan put this beautiful basket on the pew that I always sit on at church this past Sunday. With it was a sweet card offering encouragement to keep on keepin' on! I just love great friends and I brought this to school so I can see it everyday!
This is my jewelry and polymer clay "center" in my classroom. I can spend hours here and not even realize it! This truly makes me happy!
Seeing great students work on a Friday morning also makes me smile! Notice my new tablecloths? Oohhh--they're so purdy!



And making faces with some of my silly students at school always makes me smile!

And finally---I think he's gonna take after his MAMA!

Enjoy your day today! The sun's out in the piedmont of North Carolina today!

Look at you looking at your blessings and being positive today! A much needed post that we ALL need to see and take in. You only have a few days before you have time off for Thanksgiving..enjoy the time with your family and I hope your grandmother and Robbie start feeling better soon!
Thank you for putting things into perspective!

It's ok to whine! And I don't think even think you were really whining. There's a lot going on in your life right now, it's ok :)

It's snowing in the mountains of NC! I wonder if were in for an extra cold winter?

I laughed for like 5 minutes straight about the towel/toilet paper thing. I've also done that with #1 but not #2 :) And I'm sure that towel was the next one that i dried my face with! Eeeeeew!

One day we will both have glorious houses with REAL, thick walls! I have faith! I am so excited. Although the doublewide life isn't so bad. My house is a home, it's what I make of it and I'm sure yours is lovely as well!

I do work in Asheville, right down the road from Mars Hill :) And are you in Gastonia? I entered the world at Gaston Memorial. Most of my family lives in Lincolnton.
