Suprise joy!

My day started early this morning...4:45 to be exact! And minutes before my alarm went off I opened my eyes to see Fred's sweet face pressed against my face. It was a rare sweet moment that brought me one moment of pure joy. And then the alarm went off and we were both awake and trying to figure out why mornings are so hard! But then I remember that I bought myself a treadmill a month ago and have been getting up early to jump on for 30 minutes while I watch the first couple of seasons of the L Word and it does help jump start my movements.

And then today I left work at a normal hour to discover that it was 72 degrees outside. I put the top down on my bug and drove to the gym, home and then back outside again for a walk around my neighborhood. I LOVE the spring time. And while I was feeling like my day has had enough surprise moments of joy...I finally did my taxes and discovered that while times are tough...I am getting a nice amount of money back. So tonight I am going to bed grateful for the little joy of life!

First of all, good for you for getting up and actually exercising. I would just get up, pee and go back to bed! I watched The L Word for several seasons until it started getting a little strange. Let me know what you think.

Occasionally, we are rewarded for just being good and being ourselves.

Most days should be as good...

That sounds like a great day - I love to wake up with my cat's eyes looking in my eyes (as long as he's not jumping on my head) and working out first thing in the morning really sets the tone for the rest of the day. Good for you!
