    some things that make me happy

    when i do laundry - all the socks match up!

    there is "just enough" of all the ingredients to make a recipe.

    when i run out of thread at the end of the seam.

    When I flip over my quilt at the end of machine quilting and it’s perfect! When I perfectly time my vegetables to my meat at supper time. I don’t like housework but I love it when it’s all done and the house is fresh and clean.

    A fresh rotary cutting blade brings me joy. I never realize just how much extra pressure I've been having to use on an used blade until I change it out.

    My boys are grown now, but when they were younger, it used to always make me smile when I would open up a package of Oreos and see my kids had saved 4 cookies for me...the exact amount they know I like to have.

    The first green tips on treetops in spring.

    When I see DH on the driveway, headed home from traveling.

    Campfires.

    A good book to read while the cat is curled up on my lap.

    First warm enough day in spring that I can open all the windows after being closed up for winter.

    When my great grand babies look around me to see their great grampa. The look on their face is priceless!

    Eating with dh in front of a fire at Crackerbarrel.

    Watching birds outside.

    Kisses from my parrot.

    Taking the grandchildren somewhere fun for them or doing crafts with them.

    Spending sewing time with my quilting "sisters" in the guild.

    Sitting here with sunshine streaming in my windows after a weekend of rain, sleet, snow and gray skies.
    People will see your quilts long after you're gone - NOT your housework!

    Sitting with my first cup of coffee, knowing I can take as long as I want because I no longer have to dash off to work.

    Picnics make me happy. The warm sun on my face makes me happy. Mazie and Snickers (my granddogs)sitting by me for petting makes me really happy. Starting a new quilt project is a good one too.

    Beautiful cloud formations, a good book, beginning of DSTime, listening to soft but steady rain while in my porch swing or zero gravity chair. Doesn't take much to thrill me! Oh . . . and just about anything my 3 grandguys say or do!

    Having a quiet morning coffee on my porch swing before the toddlers wake up, when the weather is nice. The best way to start a day!

    A spontaneous heartfelt hug or kiss from my toddlers... I absolutely love that!

    Fresh sheets on the bed. I would change them daily if I wasn't so lazy!
    My cats make me happy all the time.
    The rest of my family make me happy most of the time

    Seeing the green shoots poking out of the sawdust covering the garlic in the garden in early spring as the snow melts off the garden.
    To many quilts, not enough wine.

    Sunrises and Sunsets.
    A good book, a good chair, a fireplace and a nice quilt to cozy under.
    Kindness, laughter, tenderness.
    Starting a project, finishing a project. (as in quilting- grin)
    SEW MUCH FUN!

    When I wake up, get my first cup of coffee and read all of the comments in Bearisgrays posts. Am always interested in Bears new questions even if I don't usually answer them. Thank you, Bear, for coming up with all these interesting topics. grammasharon
