    Re: What simple things make you happy?

    Simple pleasure today: starting my annual Valentine prep. I know I sound like Walmart, rushing one holiday before the last is over, but I cut a lot of hearts out by hand from magazines. I look for interesting colors and textures (Vogue is always a gold mine) and cut them all different sizes. I keep a box from year to year and it is really low. I must not have cut them last year. Unusual homemade Valentines are my passion.
    Count your blessings!

    My simple pleasure. It's the first day of a new year and the feeling is that it's a year of possibilities! I love beginnings, so today is one of those days that I feel the whole year stretching out before me with endless options.

    (and Christmas is almost a whole year away!!!! )

    I find pleasure knowing that the daytime is a little longer each day! Happy New Year! There are so many things to look forward to.

    Oh, me too. And I'm looking forward to March 8, when daylight savings resumes. I love long days!

    Add me in, I hate that it's dark by 5:30.

    Today's simple pleasure? I could turn off the phone because work didn't need to call me or my husband, so I don't have to talk to anyone I don't want too and lately, that is definetly a simple pleasure as I have had to deal with some real winners peoplewise over the last few weeks.

    GAA, that makes me sound like a reccluse. But just one day of knowing I don't have to answer the phone makes me so happy.

    Makes perfect sense to me. I hate talking on the phone, so it's a beautiful day when I don't have to hear it ringing.

    One of my simple pleasures - playing in the yard with my dogs. They always make me smile.

    Shovelling the driveway and feeling accomplished when I can see the cement after I'm finished!

    Manicures and pedicures.

    When you throw a rock into a pack of dogs, you know which one you hit by the one that yelps!
