It's a Happy Day--Five Stars & Kiefer Sutherland Who Could Want More?

Do you ever have those days where everything is going right and you just feel happy?  Today has been that sort of day for me.

First, I noticed on Goodreads, that a Meridian Magazine reviewer that I respect and admire gave my new novel All Fall Down FIVE STARS and said, "Exciting from start to finish."  Just those five words and those five stars really kicked my day off on the right foot.  (I'm still happy dancing from that.)

Then, I got an unexpected email from an old friend that I haven't talked to since high school.  It was fun to reconnect.

And my children woke up happy today, too, so I didn't have any morning grumbles.  We turned up the music and danced which made everything funny, so we laughed a lot, too.

Another thing that makes me happy today is that my basement is almost ready to carpet.  We've been working hard to declutter it and we are so close to having it done. It feels so good. Woohoo!

For those of you who know me, you know I loved the TV show 24.  This commercial stars Kiefer Sutherland acting like Jack Bauer as he pursues his secret passion of making cupcakes.  It made me laugh so hard, so I want to share it with you, in case you are also 24 fans.  Click here to see it.

To top it all off, the sun is shining and it's a beautiful crisp fall day---my favorite time of year.  What could be better?

Are you having a happy day?

Happy day, Julie!

Thanks, Debra. You are definitely part of my happy day. I hope you know that! :)

Ah, man, that commercial brings back the days when I absolutely loved 24! I even wrote a fanfic about Jack and Chloe. Fun times. It's on my site if anybody's interested. (Why, yes, your Honour, I do plead guilty to the crime of Shameless Self-Promotion.)

So glad you're having a happy day, Julie! Hope you have many more!

Melanie, it's kind of a blog staple. =)

That was a very funny commercial; my wife will love it.

"Can't we just look up explosions on the Internet?" "The Internet's not safe."

I kept expecting a "we're running out of time" line. Alas.

I had an less-than-fulfilling day yesterday, but I won't share so as not to bring you down. Next week should either be really happy or maddening, but probably a mix of the two. Vacations used to be fun. (with a little bit of maddening thrown in)

I have to say I was expecting we're running out of time as well. And maybe a table thrown. LOL The funniest part for me was when he started counting down so fast! 5,4,3,2,1 and that poor guy is running to get out of the way. "Call me a cab!" Haha.

Good luck next week. I know how that can go.

I LOVE that commercial. If my assassin made cupcakes it would be in a very similar manner. :)

No writing, but alot of editing done this week! Whoot!
