    There's a difference between horse chestnuts, buckeyes, and actual edible American Chestnuts. Best description I've found yet here.

    We very definitely have horse chestnuts. Before we found out they were inedible - indeed poisonous in large amounts - my husband baked one up and we tasted it. Tastes like bitter baked potato.

    Another simple pleasure was seeing a squirrel up in one of them scraping at the shell of the pod, and hearing "scritch scritch scritch."

    We also have an inedible apple tree in our backyard (whomever planted the trees on this property must have been totally insane). So we see squirrels running all over with those in their mouths, too.

    I'm feeling doubly happy today due to...
    1) sunshine after what has seemed like a week of rain, and
    2) random acts of kindness.

    How about being productive? It makes me happy to get things done!

    Made a pot roast; did a load of laundry, including folding; washed the dishes; made doggie food; decrypted some vids for people; wrote two entries in my blog; shaved legs; painted my nails (and then took it off a bit later); mopped the carpeting in the front room; and made a jello mold!

    I love having a gorgeous day to help make me productive!

    While reading this, I'm picturing David Soul doing all of the above. Particularly cute (or disturbing) was the leg shaving & nail painting.

    Sorry, I've only ever seen your avatar. :p

    Or just the opposite - I read an entire book and didn't do much else all day! Where did that "I'm so lazy..." thread go?

    Hah, send me your Kindle and I'll find you that thread!
    So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.

    I actually caught myself thinking this morning which of my kids I should leave it to if something should happen to me. My most prized possession.
