5 points a day for 7 days. Are you game?

I just saw this post at Preeti’s blog and I  felt it is a nice way of jotting down the little things that bring you joy on a daily basis. While I’m not sure if I can do justice to this every day for the next 7 days, I thought of recording five things that I anticipate will bring me happiness today.  I guess this should be more of an end of day write-up than beginning of the day, but what gives 🙂  Like I said, I’m writing this in anticipation!  If there are any changes, I will update the post at the end of the day

So here’s my list of five things –

  1. I have almost completed a project that I was kind of working on all these days
  2. Narad and I are eagerly waiting for a dear friends children to come over for a play date.  The friends kids love avial and love to do crafts with me.  Am sure all of us will have lots of fun today!
  3. I am happy that I woke up early, gives me a good headstart and reflection time.
  4. I’m happy that I cleaned the dishes in the kitchen sink yesterday night, rather than wait for today morning 🙂
  5. I’m happy thinking about the adrak chai that I am going to drink in a while!

With the day hardly having started, I’m happy that I have so many things to be happy about 🙂 

What about you, are you game?


PS: This list remains unchanged. We did have a whale of a time with the friend’s kids and overall if was a wonderful day. Looking forward to tomorrow, and I will probably do this end of the day, rather than the beginning!

      Thanks and Welcome here! Tea does have a tendency to instantly lift up spirits, right?
