Three things that make me smile: an exercise in gratitude – feel free to steal this idea with wild abandon and fill your blog with the happy.

ITIL Training

Ok, so training isn’t exactly a fun or happy thing to do. I find training to be a bit boring if I’m being honest, however in this case the instructor was a massive bundle of excited energy. It made the class (three days) fly by and I’m happy I got lucky with an instructor that made it seem interesting.

Farmers Markets

My wife and rediscovered the awesomeness that is the local farmers market this past weekend. Entering with a handful of cash, we left with several bags of local fruits and vegetables. There was even some farm raised beef and chicken in there as well that we turned into several cook-now-freeze-for-later dinners. You can bet we’ll be heading back this weekend as having fresh stuff forces you to plan and eat it all in a few days or it goes bad.

Back to School

I’m already getting happy that it’s almost back to school time for my daughter. Her routine, or lack of routine, has started to affect anything we need to do that differs from what she wants to do. Her going back to school effectively forces everyone back onto a routine that keeps everyone, including myself, happy. Not technically something that has happened, but the prospect of it happening is making me happy about it now.
