"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

Welcome to 
Feel Good Friday! 
Erika had found that a lot of her bloggy friends reading posts about being positive, so she thought she might try her very own meme.  She just wanted everyone to feel good and have some happy thoughts as you begin the weekend.  

It is never too late to join!!! 
 I have posted the prompts here to give you 
some idea of what this meme is about:
Pick one of these prompts and 
write about it on your blog!  
You can: 
  • Just make a list. List 5 things that made you really happy this week. No matter how bad or boring you think your week was, I bet you can find 5 things.  
  • Write about something that happened to you this week that really made you smile.  Was it your child, husband, or maybe a complete stranger did to you?
  • Write about something that YOU did for someone else that really made them happy or laugh.
  • Is there something you treasure so much that every single time you look at it, it brings you happiness?  Post a pic and tell everyone about it.
  • Having a hard week and can’t find one good thing about it?  Well then, what is your happy place?  What do you think of that makes you happy? A past vacation?  A childhood memory?  We want to know!
Then head over to 
and link your blog so everyone can visit 
and see all about what made you 
Feel Good!!!
Here's what made me feel good this week!!
It was a nice normal week, no drama!! With the exception of husband Jeff having a terrible cold and grandson Kaden trying our patience regularly, but the terrible two's will end soon, yeah right, it was a pretty good week.

1. The leaky toilet is finally fixed, yes we finally called a plumber, he was here about 5 minutes and because he was changing the water meters for the village to digital there was no charge!

2.  I made time for reading this week and spent less time and this computer.  I am going to try to do that more often.

3. I wrote a post this week that was a lot of fun and brought back some good memories.  "What Made You The Reader You Are Today?"  Scroll down from this post and check it out to see who I credit for my reading habit.

4.  We are starting to look for cars to replace Jayme's and one for Betsy.  She retakes her test on Monday.  Prayers appreciated.  Fingers and tossed crossed wouldn't hurt.

5.  We had a wonderful family get together last Sunday as our great niece Brooklynn was baptized.  Just have to share one picture, ok two.  She is just so cute and her baptism dress was gorgeous.

Jeremy, Heidi & Brooklynn

What made YOU feel good this week?!!
Have A Great Weekend!!

Watch out for ghosts and goblins!!!

Lori, not sure which one made me smile more the Scarecrow "mooning" the world or the pretty picture of Brooklyn! Good luck with vehicle searches and keep on reading and stay off the little machine, I am less and less on the blogs because more and more on reading my huge stack of books!

TGIF and I Feel Good this Friday for several reasons!

I just packed up 4 boxes of books but kept out a stack for the upcoming months. Sarah got into the swing of it too and she packed her books while I wasn't looking so I had to unpack them!

I will definitely be thinking of your girl and her test!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have a wonderful weekend :-)

I don't where I got that "mooning" picture, but have had it for years. It always makes me laugh.
