Blog Award - Happy 101

Thank you GunDiva!
The rules are to list 10 things that make me happy, and then pass it on to 10 people.
As my life as been a bit.....Errrrr....stressed lately (that's a very nice word to use, not all like the 4 letter words I want to use) this will be very easy.
10 things that make Melinda happy:
1. Sleep. For the past 3 weeks I've averaged 4-5 hours a night. I should add that those 4-5 hours occur in 1-2 hour naps throughout the day. So you can see, not nearly as restful as it sounds. Yesterday I got some good news so I went to bed at 2pm, woke up at 8am. It was delightful.
2. Riding. Seeing my horse. Hearing her knicker at me. I haven't been on my horse for a week. I didn't see Farley at all yesterday. :(
3. Running. Exercising. Doing something besides eating, sleeping, and sitting at this desk. For 3 weeks I've been eating fast food because that has been the only thing that met my time and energy threshold for food preperation. I am now soft and squishy.
4. Did I already mention sleep?
5. Good friends. My wonderful friend Catherine visited me over the weekend. She introduced me to desert wine and we ate chocolate, drank wine, and talked to 1am. There is something about a good friend that transcends any current situation.
6. Friends part 2. Really good trail rides with a friends. Thank you D*.
7. Galloping in hoof boots that don't come off and that make my pony comfortable.
8. Being able to leave work today when all my work is done, which might be soon if I stop writing this stinkin' post and finish up my projects.
9. Furry little kitty cats. Waking up with furry kitting cats nestled around me.
10. Simplifying my life by getting ride of stuff. Goodbye fish tank and little table! And framed picture, sofa pillow, and cowboy boots that don't fit!
Here's the 10 bloggers I'm nominating:
And as I REALLY need to get back to work, and I'm still tired, and I get to go home as soon as I finish my work, I'm ending my list of "10" now. Sorry everyone.


  1. Coming up with ten is tough, isn't it? Get some sleep, you deserve it.

  2. I want not approve on it. I assume warm-hearted post. Especially the designation attracted me to be familiar with the whole story.
