Default Small joys -

Finding enough matching buttons in the button box for the project

The bobbin thread runs out at the end of the seam

I find the dropped needle on/in the carpet before DH steps on it

Some of your small joys?

Teen-age grandson showed up at our door with a small rip in his new jeans and wondered if I could fix them. (his friend's dog did it) He took them off and sat in his underwear and visited with me while I repaired them.

Today I found a scrap batting strip just the right size for my table runner.

Having an 18yo Eagle Scout grandson, helping me move. He's put shelves up, hooks in ceiling for hanging plants, lugging boxes and recruiting several of his fellow Eagles for the big move this weekend. He's going away to college next month. I'll miss him a lot and not only because of not seeing him until Thanksgiving and his help. He has a great sense of humor and is a funny kid. He's a joy to have around.

My hummingbird feeder was empty this morning, so I mixed up a new batch and when I went outside to hang it up there were a bunch of hummingbirds hovering around my head. So, I lifted up the feeder in the air and two brave birds landed on the feeder just a few inches from my face. I could actually feel the air that their wings was flapping. I could also hear them "peep" and "squeak".

My Grandson, Devin, 12 years old, asked me to close a hole in his beloved "Lambie", a stuffed animal he got for $5. I didn't have any hand sewing needles with me, just my brand new Brother mechanical that I bought to use at his home.

Lambie would not stay still under the presser foot, so he has a "scar" on his back! Devin was happy with Lambie, scar and all.

Me, too. Giving him that moment of love makes me happy!

Taking a break from cleaning to sew a small project. I needed new curtains for my front door. Best part was getting to play on my treadle. She's so much fun!

My 20 something son telling me to Come....look at this rainbow. It took me back to my childhood when my dad came into the house after evening summer milking and called. Come ...look at the Northern Lights... A most brilliant show my 5 yo eyes had ever seen..I've only seen one other show as bright over 55 years later.

A peaceful day...puddling around, making baby stuff for our latest (my husband's first) grandchild (arriving August) and generally enjoying a rainy day.

Hope I don't upset anyone this early in the morning, but getting our oldest cat Boots thru the day without him doing any upchucks.
