10 Friday Fragments: Things That Made Me Happy

Things To Look Forward To

1)  I am looking forward to baseball starting again--go tribe!  In the meantime March Madness will soon be here which is always fun to watch and I look forward to beating my husband with my bracket. The winner gets to choose where we go to eat--his choice he says would be Kenny Kings, my choice will probably be Cracker Barrel.

2)  So glad to see sunshine and warmer temperatures!  Snow, be gone! Bring on Spring! Did you notice I changed our header?

My Pets

Spunky on Computer Chair With Me
3)  Spunky Doodle hung out with me at the computer this week.  She hasn't really done that in awhile.  I always take time out to pet her when she does though.  Pets are wonderful!  They always make me smile. I've noticed that since Gerard is home all day, Abby comes and greets me at the door when I get home from work with her tail waving.

Taking Care of Business

4)  Glad our taxes are done and now we just wait for our refund which will go into savings to pay vet bills.  Manny Boy's dental is coming up and Abby's shots on the 25th.  Oh yeah, and need to get more Revolution for our pets too!  There goes our refund or just about.

Serving the King of Kings and Lord of Lords

5)  I love hearing how much kids like our Sunday School class.  I teach 5th graders and the one boy who missed because his parents slept in was so bummed because he didn't get the paper with verses to read each day.  His mom sent me a message asking for them!  I have been encouraging them to try to read their Bible every day and jot down what scripture they read an if something stands out to them to share.  One girl has done this every day for 5 weeks!  Still some haven't yet started, but I am not giving up.  Daily Bible reading is important if you are a Christian who wants to stay close to God.  Do you read the Bible every day?

Time to Chill Out and Relax

6)  Discovered a new TV shows we both like:  "Secrets and Lies" and "Football Tykes."  Anyone else watch these?

Reading Good Books

7)  Gerard and I read "American Sniper" and liked the book.  Maybe we'll go see the movie sometime.  Have you seen the movie?  Our favorite read for February was The Honest Truth by new children's author, Dan Gemeinhart.  It's about a boy who has Cancer and runs away to climb Mount Ranier to keep a promise he made to his grandfather when he died.  Only his best friend figured out where he was but struggles with if she should tell or not. I even learned how to write haiku poems from reading this book!

8)  Glad we got our car clock set--who knew we had to have the radio on to do it!  It was bugging me that I couldn't get it reset.

Finding Fun Things

9)  Found this St. Patrick's Day treat over at Divine Lifestyle:  Mint Oreo Cookies! I found this blog when I visited it after seeing the google anayltics on My Funny Dad, Harry blog showing she visited me.

Inspiration from New Memories

10)  I am so excited to be posting again on MY FUNNY DAD, HARRY blog.  I am trying to post two or three times a week there and would love for you to visit and subscribe.  I am also pleased that there's been some renewed interest in my book.  Thanks to all who have read it and written good reviews for it.  If you are on Goodreads, I'd appreciate it if you would add it to your shelf and perhaps recommend it.

Finally got some Friday Fragments for Mrs. 4444 the host at Half-Past Kissin' Time.

Our Little Bit is very expensive too. Most times we take her it's very pricey. Oh well, they are so worth it and if we don't take care of them properly it will shorten their lives.

Have a fabulous day. Scritches to the babies. ☺

I love the photo of you and Manny. Because there's space on the left, it would make a great Facebook cover photo :)

We still haven't changed the clock on our new microwave; it's buttons are kind of complicated, oddly enough!

Mark takes me to one movie per year, near our wedding anniversary, since it's such a sacrifice to him.haha Today, we're going to American Sniper. We'll also drop our taxes off!

Friday Fragmenter numbers have dwindled. I'm not sure how I feel about that, but I'm glad you linked up! :)

WOW! You've got a lot of positive things going on there. We've been having some things happening here that aren't swell and I'm tired of being down, so I just started counting my blessings this week. It does help be more positive!

I am excited about baseball season too! We owe (a LOT) on our taxes. Boo! I took Grace to the vet and it wasn't expensive and she gave us some meds to get Grace feeling better and eating more. I liked the move "American sniper." AND I figured out how to set the clock in my new car too.

It was a good week! Plus it is sunnier and warmer here and I'm going to start my Spring cleaning today. Hooray

Sandee--Yes, they are worth it. That's what I keep telling myself. Had to buy Revolution for the three of them today, just a 3-month supply came to $167! They are worth it, and cheaper than kids would be.

Mrs. 4444--The picture is of me and Spunky Doodle, not Manny boy, but don't think some would be cut off if used it on Facebook for a profile pic, wouldn't it? I've noticed the fragment linkup has dwindled, but I just think there are less blogging now with Facebook in full force. It's just quicker. I'll be interested to hear how you like the movie--I think your husband will like this one!

Lin--Yes, I have many blessings, much to be thankful for. I may have to start looking for a cheaper vet for my cats. The one we have is very handy for our dog and she would miss stopping in there for treats on her walks. Glad you figured out your car clock too--tricky little things aren't they? Glad you had a good week!

P.S. We both thought the movie was very good, but I thought the fake baby and fake pregnant belly were ridiculously amateurish (not to mention creepy).
