Wow it really is Happy Monday. I got woken up at 12.12am by the sound of rain on our roof. I measured 16mls in the gauge at 9.00am and have had some more gentle rain since then. Spare a thought though for the people of Carnarvon who are under flood at the moment.
I am also happy to have been doing some reading of late. I enjoy reading and over Summer I seem to do more of it. Last week I read Maeve Binchy's new book called "Finding Frankie." I also found out that another author Miss Read has written a new book and have ordered this from the library.
Catherine's Gift. This book is not your ordinary book,rather it makes you think how lucky these people are that Dr Catherine Hamlin is there to help them. Some rather awful stories but mostly with good outcomes. Please do yourself a favour and check out this link and if you get the chance please read this book. It will change your view on what is important in your life.
I can also say I am happy that I defrosted my freezer this morning. I know small things make me happy. Though the real reason was because I needed to tidy it up before Christmas. I made Tarnyia's Granddad's Ice cream Recipe this morning. Tarnyia assures me it is calorie free. I sure hope so because I have just made two lots of it. Licking out 4 cream cartons,2 condensed milk cans plus a few nuts and choc chips and some fresh blueberries. I can assure you it tastes delicious. I didn't have any brandy so I used some of real vanilla essence for flavouring. Thanks Tarnyia for the recipe.
I would love to hear what is making you "Happy this Monday."
