Fragmented Friday

Time to join Mrs. 4444 for Friday Fragments to drop all the bits and pieces of thought from the week. Enjoy! :)

  • It's been hot this week and our AC decided to act up. Thank goodness it's finally working decent. I don't know how people did it back in the old days. Okay I do know. They didn't have it so they didn't miss it they just took care of business.
  • Since it's been so hot we have been eating more salads and fresh veggies. I am not normally a salad or veggie person but they are so good. I think I could get use to this
  • Been going back to the gym since school has been out. It feels good to be working out again. 
  • I have discovered a wonderful online magazine called Curvy Girl Guide. I love it! It's like Blogher but geared specifically for voluptuous girls like me. You can check it out here. 
  • Fathers Day is this weekend. I really wished I lived closer to my dad. Good news end I should get to see him end of July! :)
  • We are going to see my father in law Saturday and go to dinner with him and his family. Good times. 

What's your week been like? I hope it's been wonderful! :)

 I recently discovered a new blog. It's The Frugal Girl. I love it! I'm all about frugal living and living a richer, fuller life on less. One of her annual segments is about contentment. I  believe that contentment is looking at the good and choosing to focus on those things instead of the bad. Contentment is somthing that is often overlooked and ignored in our fast paced society. However contentment is very important.  I think people who are not content will never be happy no matter what. People who are content are happy. 
Here is my  happy list.

1. I am thankful for my husband. 
He is my true love and best friend. He's one of the few people who "gets me" yet still loves me anyway. He spoils me and treats me like a queen. I am lucky to be his girl!

2. I am thankful for my home. 
True it is not new and needs a lot of work but I am thankful we have a roof over our head. There are so many people I know who are loosing their homes.

3. I am thankful for Summer
Things are at a slower more laid back pace. No hustling and bustling like during school year. 
Time to catch up on things


 4. I am thankful for air conditing! 
With temperatures over a 100 degrees already this summer. I am thankful for cool places out of the heat! 

What are you thankful for? What do you think about contentment?
