Finding Joy Friday, Part Deux

Because, really, who doesn't find this hilarious?

Finding Joy Friday

It's quite a list of happiness this week. Let me know what's brought you joy lately.

The goldenrod peeking over the top of the backyard fence.

My sassy girl. I met with her teacher this morning for the fall parent-teacher conference. It's always a joy to hear other adults reaffirm what I already knew about my girl - she's bright, well-behaved and an all-around good kid.

"I do it myself." While I'm not always joyful when Jack utters these four words, it does bring me great pleasure to know that he's mastering important skills like making toast, getting ice and water out of the fridge, and rolling out tortilla dough (ok, this last was a bit tongue in cheek, but he thinks it's very important).

Ray's grace under pressure. It's nice to know that when I'm falling to pieces, Ray is there to pick them up and put them back together with Paleobond, of course.

Going to Pittsburgh and coming back home again.

This lovely post from Amy. And I thought I was the only one.
