Sunday Praise: What’s Made Me Happy This Week?

Well, it’s been quite a week for us all I think!

  • Jacqui from the brilliant JacquiWine’s Journal has started a novellas thread on Twitter. It’s brilliant. Get following!
  • No Alibis Bookstore had a great deal on this week so I had to so some shopping. I mean, how could I resist? 🤣
  • We started watching Ozark last Sunday and are already half way through Season 2. What a rollercoaster of a show.
  • It was my birthday yesterday and despite having to celebrate with family outdoors and socially distanced, I had a really lovely day and was spoiled with books, port, lots of love and a cake made by my girl 💙
  • And finally, the news about the US election last night was the icing on my metaphorical cake!

So, what in your life deserves some praise this week? Let me know in the comments!

  1. What a great cake. Happy birthday!
    I haven’t even been able to look at the US news, as when you see comments made on social media by some of the electorate, it leads you to expect the worst. So yes, that was an uplifting result.


  2. Happy birthday for yesterday! Glad you got to celebrate with your family.

    Things that made me happy this week were having a week off work (originally booked at the start of the year for a Big Birthday trip to San Francisco), a walk on the beach with friends before lockdown separated us again plus flying my kite by the sea on Wednesday, walking in a forest and enjoying the autumn colours in our household bubble of two on Friday, a cheesestravaganza from our local deli, and a week of birthday cake for pudding and matcha kitkats. And yes, the news from America was a fine end to the week.


  3. Happy Birthday, Cathy! Your daughter did such a great job with your cake! 🙂
    I think we’re all praising the results of the US election, but I’m also praising the health and safety of my son after a car accident he was in yesterday. Now that my kids are old enough to drive, I think I’d be happy if all motor vehicles just disappeared from the earth forever and we all had to go back to walking or cycling!


  4. Happy birthday, Cathy!
    My happy things all arrived on the same day: for the first time since our lockdown ended, friends joined us for a ‘socially distanced and masked’ lunch yesterday. The sun shone, the food was perfect, our spring garden was looking beautiful and it was a joy to be with these, our dearest friends.
    Yes, the US election. I doubt if much will change, but at least we won’t have to put up with That Man anymore.
    Best of all, our premier announced that the 25k restriction on lockdown travel was over. I haven’t seen The Offspring since it all began, and though other families were able to visit each other as of a fortnight ago, we couldn’t because he lives more than 25k away. But now we have had what we call 10 ‘double doughnut days’ (i.e. zero, zero: no new cases, no C-19 deaths) the restrictions are lifting in ways that matter to me, and he’s coming to dinner this Thursday!


  5. Those election results were a gift to you as much as the rest of the country! I am sure that put you in a celebratory mood.
    Happy Birthday!! The cake looks so delish. I hope you had a fabulous day.
