1. Soccer on television. I love watching soccer on television. We have a fantastic local team, Sporting KC, and their games are almost always on tv here. In addition, last week was the US Men's National team against Real Madrid, which was a blast to watch. And sometimes on weekends I get to catch some European teams, like yesterday, watching Germany's Bayern Munich vs. Dortmund. Watching soccer makes me very happy.
2. Unseasonably cool temperatures. I know I said this last week to, but Saturday, it was cloudy and rainy and just over 60 degrees outside, and I just stood out there and grinned. I couldn't help it. This just doesn't happen in Kansas in August. Usually we're just lucky to have temps below 100 at this time of year. So I have been happy all week, I was happy all weekend, and I think I get to happy about this for another week too. Life is good.
3. Ben Stiller and Mel Brooks. Last night's baseball game was rained out, so we stayed home and cleaned out some of our DVR. After awhile, my boyfriend got tired of picking what to watch, so I looked though everything we had. It turned into a double feature: Dodgeball, followed by Spaceballs. It made for a wonderful Saturday night filled with laughter and love. Remember, if you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball. And may the Schwartz be with you!
