52 Weeks of Happy - Week 11

I can't believe I did not update my blog at all this week - it's been busy.  I only have two happy photos to share this week but I am sharing four happy things as usual.

First up is a little bit of spring cleaning I started last Sunday. Must have been that extra hour of daylight that got me moving in that direction.  The kitchen got a good scrubbing including removing everything from the drawers, washing them down and reorganizing them.  Not sure how long they will stay this neat but it makes me happy every time I open the drawer.

We've seen a significant increase in snow melt this week - thank goodness!  I took this photo of my back yard - a section totally free of snow!

My next happy thing is getting my federal and state tax returns deposited in my back account this week.  I'm not sharing a photo of my back account but it makes me happy to have a little cushion in my savings account.

And finally, I volunteered a couple of hours today to man the phones for a local non-profit organization's telethon.  This is the second year I've been asked and it makes me incredibly happy to be able to support the organization in a small way.  They provide a wide array of services for the developmentally challenged from young children all the way to adults.  The whole town seems to draw together to support this organization and the good they do for so many families and that really makes me happy!

I hope you had a week full of happy things this week.

What a great chance to do some volunteering.
We also had snow-free sections in our garden and on the meadows behind the house - but only until this mornin g, when it started snowing again and now everything is white again. Sigh.
