10 Things That Made Me Happy This Week (Vol. 9)

It's Friday and you know what that means!  Here are 10 Things That Made Me Happy This Week:
  1. This amazing sunrise on Monday morning. I swear, it looked like the horizon line was on fire.  
  2. Abandoning a book that simply wasn't doing it for me and returning it to Audible for a full credit, no questions asked.
  3. This incredible sunrise Wednesday morning.
  4. Being able to wear jeans to work on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday in exchange for a $1 (per day) donation to the United Way.
  5. Reminiscing while backing up photos.
  6. Silencing the beast!  
    (An outdated wifi pod in my room at work that is no longer in use, but still plugged in, has been emitting a high frequency noise that apparently only I, 2 other adults, 6 of my students, and dogs can hear.  It drove me BONKERS!  They wanted me to fill out a work order to have it taken down, so I took matters into my own hands and did it myself.)
  7. Laughing with colleagues during lunch.
  8. Being able to wear jeans OR sweats to work today for a $1 United Way donation.
  9. Given that Thanksgiving is next week, this week several students asked for a blank sheet of paper so that they could trace their hand in order to make the outline of a turkey.  A friend of mine posted this on Facebook and it cracked me up:
  10. As did this cartoon: 
Happy Friday!  Have a great weekend!  Happy Thanksgiving next week!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Those sunrises are spectacular! Have a great weekend!

    1. Aren't they, though? And to think, I saw 2 such amazing sunrises in the span of 3 days. That's almost unheard of for me! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

  2. Beautiful sunrises and hilarious memes! Im all about that baste! Im so using that! Have an wonderful weekend!

  3. That basting meme is awesome Hahahah!
    Your sunrise pictures are incredible. I'm such a sucker for sunrises and sunsets. :)
    Have a great weekend girl!! :)

  4. Jeans to work for a good cause?! Sign me up! Looks like you got some great sunrises this week. Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. My principal has been very gracious all November actually. On *most* days, we've had the option of wearing jeans for a $1 donation, with the option of wearing sweats/athletic pants on Fridays instead of jeans. I have been completely stoked every Friday, for I have been able to wear my comfy Adidas pants that I love, love, love! This United Way campaign has spoiled us and I dread the thought of going back to work pants in December! LOL! Hope you have a great weekend, too! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. oh my gosh what a crack up those little cartoons are, we don't have thanks giving in Australia but I still can appreciate the humour in these. Beautiful sunrises too. #10thingsthatmademehappy

  6. Such beautiful sunrises! Haha...those cartoons made me laugh

  7. i'd never seen the sunrise on a beach before until i went to north carolina a few weeks ago. i'd flown into and out of myrtle beach. i'm not a morning person by any means, and i had an early flight, so i was a little worried i wasn't gonna get up (i've been known to miss flights before because they were too early), so i'd set my alarm well ahead of time. i left the hotel before sunrise. and i'd decided that i enough time to spare, so i drove to the beach with the sky still black and watched the line on the horizon go from red to orange to gold. it was beautiful.

    i love it against the trees, though. i like that the line then is so varied. your photos are lovely.

  8. Those thanksgiving cartoons are the best! LOL!!
