    Having the bills paid, the house clean, and a little time to play cards.

    Going to a play and dinner with my daughter. We haven't spent much mother/daughter time together lately.

    We're going to see a bang up production of The Wizard of Oz at the performing arts center here.

    So.................

    I'm off to see the Wizard!!!!

    (I don't need a brain-that may be doubtful to some- or a heart or courage, but I do need financial aid, think he'll be able to help with that???? If he'd just give me the diploma like he did The Scarecrow, I'd be set. )

    Being able to talk to my daughter-in-law as a friend, not just a "mom".
    I never met a piece of chocolate I didn't like.

    Having 3 weeks with my daughter who left to go back to college today. We had a great time. She is only an hour away, so I will get to see her fairly often. And my house is much neater now that much of her stuff has gone with her to her house. She moved from a dorm environment to a house, so I have been housing many of her plants and furniture for 9 months in my small place.

    My simple happy thing today is re-connecting with long-lost friends. I love it when you log onto a site like Facebook, and discover that an old friend you'd totally lost touch with has found you.

    Looking at old pictures. I've decided to go through all of our old family pictures, sort them, scan them and put them on discs for my kids. It's going to take me forever though, because I keep getting sidetracked by the memories. I'm having a ball doing it though.

    That is such a worthwhile project! After my grandmother passed away, my sister did that with many of her old pictures for my family. It's such a treasure to have. I've also found that it 's a much easier way to keep track of old pictures. I know that all of those pictures are in one place, so when I want one for whatever reason, I don't have to go through multiple albums, boxes, etc trying to figure out where exactly that paticular photo is.

    Please also add me to the people happy the days are getting longer. I live in MN right now and whenever people complain about the dark I tell them to go spend a winter in Anchorage (I spent 23 winters there) and then come back to complain to me!!!

    I can't drive in the dark so I'll be very happy when the daylight last longer!
    Yup, with donuts!!
