Thinking Out Loud Thursday - March 24, 2015

Happy Thursday!  So glad you stopped by to see what me and Vanessa at X-tremely V are thinking out loud about today.  This has been a busy week for me and I'm still trying to figure out what I'm serving for Easter, so I'm digging up an old post to share with you today.

On Saturday, my friend Linda called me in the middle of the afternoon to chat and I told her I was having the best day.  She asked why it was such a great day and it caused me to pause.  Nothing specifically spectacular had happened - I was just playing the stereo loud and getting stuff done around the house.  Getting stuff accomplished - Isn't that just the best feeling sometimes!?!

Well, that made me remember a blog post I did about two years ago just after I had started blogging about it's a good day when....  I went back and re-read it.  Sure enough, the things I said two years ago are still very true today.  Since I only had about 8 followers then, it's safe to say many of you probably missed this post so I'm going to share it again with you today.  Having a good day is what I'm thinking out loud about!

It's a good day when....

You wake up hearing the ocean and know your feet will be in the sand as soon as you walk outside.

A friend calls to schedule a girls night out.

A water main breaks near your office and they call off work for the day.  And the repair part for the said water main break doesn't come in and they tell you to take the rest of the week off.  (BTW -- this has never and will probably never happen to me.  Just sayin').

You have concert tickets for an outdoor venue and it's an absolutely beautiful day.

Someone you know gets an incredible honor that they truly deserve. 

A work friend surprises you with your favorite bagel for breakfast.

You're home recuperating and friends bring you food.

A surprise bouquet of flowers arrive from a secret admirer.

Upon opening the mailbox, you see there's an actual handwritten note or card for you. 

You pull into the parking lot at work and see the number one parking spot is open.

Someone else makes the bed (thanks Eric -- you know I LOVE when you do this).

What makes a day really good for you?  Hope you are having a really good day today!

Now it's your turn ~ share with us what you're thinking out loud about today!  Link up your favorite post(s) from the week below and let us read all about it.

  1. Going to bed and not having to set an alarm for the next morning. :)

  2. If you were living in Colorado the no work thing might have happened this week but BC of snow!

  3. There is nothing better than crossing things off a to-do list!

  4. Oh, I love this list so much! Especially waking up next to the ocean and having sand between my toes. Reminds me a Zach Brown song--"I got my toes in the water, a** in the sand / Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand / Life is good today. Life is good today."

    <3 Thank you for sharing this. Also on a somewhat related note, I once had a call that there was a water main break and the office would be closed... then I realized it was for the tenant who lived in my apartment before me. BUMMER! XOXO
