    I'm so happy when appliances I have actually work the way they're supposed to; especially if it's new.

    I just feel more energetic when the daytime is longer - definitely makes me happy!

    I am very happy when everything around my 60 year old house is working! Our shower faucet started dripping the other day. Mr. C was not busy so he got to it right away and now we don't have any drips! We won't need that done again for another year or so.

    I just sat down after a long day with a glass of fresh squeeze Ruby Red grapefruit juice. Nice! Cheers to you all!

    My porch light is working again. Sounds stupid, but we live in the country and it gets dark out here at night. The funny part is that last night I let Roxie out and said to my husband, "I wish this stupid light worked." He said, "They work better when you turn the switch on". He had fixed it almost a week ago and I, thinking it wasn't working, just never flipped the switch! DUH!

    I'm about to take on my next adventure of replacing my porch light! I've never done it before, but I don't think it is a huge endeavor. I guess I'll see, huh?

    We have motion sensor lights that need to be put up where the other outside lights are. It will be my simple pleasure when it gets done. And yes, I could do it, but one requires a 12 foot ladder and I do NOT do ladders AT ALL, so must wait for hubby to get around to it.

    Luckily, mine just requires a step stool. It's the kind that goes on the house, next to the door.

    We have two outdoor lights with motion sensors and when my daughter was being stalked when we first moved here, the jerk broke both lights with a rock. I've never been able to figure out how to get what's left of the bulb base out. My simple pleasure today is going to Barnes and Noble with a $20 gift card I got yesterday. It's burning a hole in my pocket!

    I've never had to worry about fixing anything electrical because my husband is an electrician and he handles all that. Sometimes the electrical problems are the ones that get put off though. I suppose because he does that all day and doesn't want to have to come home and fix all our broken junk too.

    I guess that would qualify as a simple thing that makes me happy. Having 3 men in my life who can fix almost anything. Saves a lot on repairman bills.

    I've tried the raw potato method to remove broken light bulbs and it's worked fine. I've also heard that you can use a new bulb to unscrew the old, broken one.
