    Re: What simple things make you happy?

    I have a few simple things making me happy today. Cats have a way of making me happy - today I knew my cats were on the back porch having just let them out of the house. I just heard or thought I heard one of them knocking on the door to get back in! And the sound was right on. What it turned out to be was my cat scratching and as he did so, he was rocking a board so it hit the cement in a rhythmic pattern, imitating knocking. I still have a picture in my mind of him knocking on the door - I am sure I read too many children's books!

    A truly wonderful, simple thing - our house is over 50 years old and showing it's age. We just snaked out the washing machine drain so it works well (we were having to stand by it on the rinse cycle and lift the lid to give the water time to drain). Nice. Right after that the shower wouldn't drain well. I got that cleared up today. So as of today, no dripping faucets, running toilets or clogged drains! I will enjoy it while it lasts!

    My simple pleasure is that we got the last of the blinds hung and most of the rest of the boxes unpacked. It's starting to look like home. All the pictures, mirrors and paintings still need to be hung and I need to unpack my china cabinet, but other than that, we're done.
    Well except that the washer is not yet hooked up and dh is going to have to work on the plumbing a bit more. I really don't want to make another trip to the laundrymat this week or ask my friends if I can bring a load of clothes over when I visit. Fortunately, I have some really NICE friends.

    Warm-from-the-oven chocolate chip cookies ...
    I never met a piece of chocolate I didn't like.

    A rainy day.

    a short line at the voting booth-20 minutes from walking from my car to walking back to my car.

    Sunshine and 70 degrees on Nov. 4th in northern Iowa! (They're talking about snow this weekend)
