#100happydays – Days 57 Through 63
Here is my ninth week of #100happydays.
Day 57 – September 1, 2014: Our route home was planned so that we could go to Glacier National Park and drive the Going-To-The-Sun Road. There was nothing sunny about our drive, with rain, clouds, and bitter wet cold that would convince anyone that winter is just around the corner. But, it was a stunning drive for those not afraid of sharp corners and virtually no guardrails overlooking a steep mountain edge. And clearly we are not as we love the mountains. We had a wonderful time!
Day 58 – September 2, 2014: Today I spent most of the day not feeling very well. I suspect the weekend of not sleeping enough, consuming too much alcohol and hanging out in the cold rain on the going-to-the-sun road resulted in me being under the weather. But, the happy today was pretty easy to spot – I spent the day curled up on the couch under an alpaca/wool blanket we brought home from Peru last year. I was happy to be able to spend the day snuggled on the couch warm and worry free.
Day 59 – September 3, 2014: I’m still sick, and it’s pouring rain outside today. So today’s happy moment is the simple pleasure of homemade, garden fresh, zucchini soup.
Day 60 – September 4, 2014: Today’s happy moment was an afternoon of Disney movies.
Day 61 – September 5, 2014: Sunset on the prairies! I was finally feeling better, so we took our dog for a walk outside of the city and we couldn’t help but stop to enjoy this amazingly beautiful sunset.
Day 62 – September 6, 2014: We met up with a group of friends for breakfast this morning at one of our favourite local eateries. We had a great time visiting! (Side note – I’ve decided the fact that we go for breakfast with friends is a sure sign that we are officially old).
Day 63 – September 7, 2014: We spent the day with a family member that we haven’t seen in about 12 years – how does time go by so quickly? She is moving across the country to a community near us for work, so we picked her up at the airport and helped her get settled into her now home. We had a great time chatting and look forward to spending more time with her now that she we are so close. And, the happiest part of the day was when I dragged her and my husband into a Christmas store. Who doesn’t love 5 minutes of Christmas happiness in September?!
Wishing everyone a great week filled with happy moments!

I just love reading these posts from you! I always catch myself smiling from ear to ear while looking at the pictures and seeing what all you have been up to. I’m sorry you haven’t been feeling well but I’m hoping you are doing better today. I love that you went to a Christmas store…Christmas is by far my favorite! Just today I was sitting in our dining room trying to figure out where we would put our tree this year 🙂 hehe
Thanks so much Elisha! I am happy to report that I am back to normal now, and healthy as can be.
Funny enough I went into the Christmas store and the very next day we had a huge early snow storm.

that’s crazy! I saw on the news tonight about a place getting snow and my mouth dropped! It was hot and humid where I live today (southern IL). I can’t imagine getting snow!
We’ve had no power in our house all day. Trees have come down everywhere. It’s been cold and it makes me grouchy – it’s just way to early for winter! (The snow is about 6-8 weeks earlier then normal, and the earliest I remember getting hit with snow in my entire life).
