Happiness is.....

- A hot fresh cup of coffee and warm cherry pie in your jammies on a cold rainy night

- A dog who is so happy to see you, her tail wags her whole body

- Finding a crumpled $10 bill at the bottom of your purse when you thought you were broke

- Getting a notice from the gas company that they over estimated your previous bill and you owe nothing this month

- A good book

- Watching the guy who cut you off in traffic get pulled over for speeding

- Coffee and gossip with your best friend

- Finding a parking space right by the door

- A full pantry

- Hair that looks good

- Having money leftover after all the bills are paid

- Watching the person running to get ahead of you at the ATM or grocery line trip and fall

- Finding something you’ve lost

As you can see, I have simple pleasures. Do you ever think about all the little things that make you happy….and its ok if some of them are a little bit spiteful…we are only human, after all.

Oh Val I love all of those things, even the slightly mean ones....*snigger*....maybe even ESPECIALLY the slightly mean ones.

I am always happy when I am curled up in bed on a cold wintry night, listening the rain pelt down on the roof. Or curled up in a chair in front of a roaring fire. Or watching my favourite tv show (LOST) with a big bar of macadamia chocolate. Yes, like you, it doesn't take much to make me happy either.

I was going along reading, my warm fuzzies growing and then I read the ATM comment. I snorted I laughed so hard! Too funny.

Yes, those are all wonderful!! Thanks for checking in on me.

I saw Hair that looks good in the list - ohhhh... I just put up a blog about my hair, and now I'm going to flood this town with my tears...

Love your list! I have to add "sunshine in winter after it's been cloudy for what seems like weeks". :-)

A great list val - My favorite one is the speeder after he cut you off, that seems to happen so often, but where is a cop when you need one?

I hope your week is going well.

I want to thank you for the kind comments that you have left for me recently, you'll never know how much they help. :)
