August Happiness Challenge: Television and Other Lovely Things

This post is going to cover 4 days of the August Happiness Challenge! If you want to join in, create an icon of something, anything, that makes you happy, post your 'happy', and head over to One Gal's Musing and let her know, in the comments, that you're on board! That's it!


Day 11: Television makes me happy. Not the news or politics but sitcoms. I do enjoy sitcoms. My current favorite is: LAST MAN STANDING. I've been crushing on Tim Allen for a long time. I find him hilarious. 

But why do I like his latest sitcom so much? I love that they look at both sides of the issues. So many people talk about how they love his conservative comments and how "that is stuff that needs to be said." I have no idea what the hell they are talking about and I'm not sure they're actually watching the show. Two of his three daughters are more liberal minded as is his wife. They are constantly giving attention to both sides of every issue I've seen aired on this delightful program. I find it refreshing to see a father of daughters allow his daughters to be who they are and not try to shove his own agenda down their throats. 

The other thing about television? Netflix and Hulu which offer so many detective shows that I love, such as LONGMIRE, and have introduced me to my latest craze- Brittish detective shows! 

Day 12: Football makes me happy! Preseason has begun and college ball is not that far behind. I am going to be a happy camper until February! WooHoo! And do not worry, I've been collecting football related clothing for Baby M for months! She's all set! 

Day 13:  Funny memes make me happy. And there are some funny ones out there. Like these:




Day 14: Learning words that are new to me makes me happy. Especially when those words are so soothing. 



What makes y'all happy?

  1. That's a new word for me, too...pluviophile. It does fall nicely off the lips, doesn't it?! The Eagles won last night's preseason game. Joe was happy but says they still played lousy. We LOVE Last Man Standing for all the reasons you mention. Have you seen the one where Wilson and his other TV wife and one of the boys come by? Hilarious. We are hooked on British detective shows and many of the Netflix originals, too.

    1. It is a nice word. The Panthers lost. And they played lousy. Ha! They have this habit of getting within 10 yards of a TD and choking. I watch repeats episodes of LMS every single day on Netflix and Hulu. I can't wait for the new season. I love it Jonathan Taylor Thomas was on as Kristen's boss. That was a riot!

  3. Hey! I am one of those pluviophiles and got to enjoy a little rain shower this afternoon. I'm looking forward to more next week. I like Last Man Standing, too because it isn't one sided, but don't watch it that often.

    1. I'm in need of a rainy day. We had one on Sunday and it was glorious! But I'm ready for another. I'm so glad that others notice that they cover both sides in that sitcom. :)

  4. pluviophiles - a new one for me. There are many "philes" types. Seems like anything can be tacked on to the front of "phile". How about blogphile? Works for me.

  5. Loved your graphics, lol...especially the big girl panties, lololol. We like Last Man Standing as well...especially when he makes comments about Obama and Hillary, LOLOL...Knowing full well, those shows were made back in 2011-2013.

    1. I've been watching that show since it started and am so glad they're coming back for a 6th season! Thank goodness they present both sides of all social/political/whatever issue they cover. I love that he's supportive of his daughters regardless of their views and encourages them to be independent thinkers. My girls are like that. I love it. Their dad hates it. He thinks they should think and vote the way he does. Sorry, buddy, it's not 1950. LOL

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
