    Re: What simple things make you happy?

    Here are just a couple...

    1. Wearing a warm sweatshirt and jeans on a brisk sunny day while walking along a path in a wooded area during the middle of October. Listening to the fallen leaves crunch beneath my feet and smelling that fantastic woodsy aroma all around me. Heading home after the walk and building a warm crackling fire to enjoy with the people I love.

    2. The smell of freshly ground coffee beans... LOVE.

    Watching baby animals walk before their legs get strong.

    Watching the deer, a set of twins, going across my front yard. They were born in the back of my pasture and mama kept them there but now they are gaining their independence and going off by themselves. They are both bucks and already have a small rack. Beautiful little creatures.

    Not feeling the need to rant about anything, for once. Which nowadays is rare.

    Being open about myself and having others accept.

    And again, getting acknowledged by people I admire.

    When there is British royalty stuff on television, and I can fast forward! I am so sick of these people I could just spit!


    Actually, fast-forwarding....PERIOD....makes me happy.

    Skeleton-bombing our school... all my students made cut-out skeleton paper dolls (fold 4 times, holding hands) and I went in at 6 a.m. and taped them to all the classroom windows, principal, caf, gym, entry, THE BOYS' BATHROOM (they were unnerved by that! ), etc. One grouchy male teacher tore his down immediately. :eyeroll
