    Some things that make my day happy!

    A good haircut!

    Having store coupons and manufacturer coupons for something I want.

    The thread runs out at the end of the seam!

    There was "just enough" fabric to get that last piece cut from.

    The iron still works after falling off the ironing board.

    My sister sends home cut flowers.

    How about some of your "simple pleasures"?

    There is NEVER just enough fabric. I am always running short of fabric and having to come up with a Plan B, C ,D..... Have told my best friend that he should put THAT on my tombstone.
    A Good Friend, like an old quilt, is both a Treasure and a Comfort

    A day off from work and a clean house so I can sew!
    Hubby coming home from working out of town.
    Dinner I didn't have to cook.
    I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!

    A purring cat snuggled in my lap, (as she is now).

    Hearing the birds sing.

    That first cup of coffee in the morning when the rest of the house is asleep.

    The smell of fresh cut grass.

    A beautiful sunset.

    I'll go along with
    "Dinner I didn't have to cook"
    My little dog snuggling next to me at night.
    A cool spell in the middle of our summer (100 and plus from about June to Sept)
    Not having to rip any seams in a project

    I'll take what everyone else has with the exception of the pets on my lap or in my bed and 4 fun size packs of M&M peanuts. It gets hot here also.

    My son coming over to say "hi".
    the engine turns over in the car.
    My husband walking in the front door at night.
    My kitty sleeping with me and being a nurse when I don't feel good.
    an e-mail from my cousin telling me about her day.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    My two year old grandson telling me I'm his best friend.
    Baking a delicious pie.
    Walking into my sewing room with my dog following me and sleeping while I sew.
    DH sitting in his chair doing his crossword puzzle each night.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Ditto the sleeping sewing room dog. I got her to be my companion, even if sleeping.
    Listening to a 2 or 3 year old giggle for no reason. Doesn't even have to be mine.
    Listening to an oriole or a bluebird sing.

    An answered prayer...
    A project going together without having to rip more than once...
    My son getting his school work done and his chores without a fight...

    Sitting in the backyard on my swing watching the birds
    Besides my family, my pets are the most important things to me. I have had birds, a dog or cats since I was about 8 years old. The cruelest thing you can do to me is take my animals away.

    Knowing God is always with me.
    Being with my husband.
    Seeing my son and daughter in law.
    Having snuggles with my doggie babies.
    Enjoying my flowers.
    Listening to the birds.
    Admiring the freshly cut grass.
    A slow, warm, rainy day.
    Chatting on here with good folks, and admiring their creations.

    Feeling my dogs curled up, asleep and touching some part of me. A playful kitten. Working on a quilt.
    going out and buying more fabric.
    listening and watching the birds, nesting and later feeding their young ones.
    Watching a flower bloom.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    Curled up in the big chair with a good murder/detective story.

    A summer day with low humidity.

    Listening to great "Big Band" music from the 30's and 40's.

    First cup of coffee.

    DH getting up first and feeding the cats and putting on the coffee--without being asked.
    SUNSHINE--especially in Nov. and Dec. I suffer from SAD. The sun makes me happy.
    Finding a shirt that doesn't need de-hairing before wearing. Love the little buggers but they sure do shed.
    My littlest DGD's voice on the phone saying "Hi Nana! When are you coming ovair?" Yes she has an 'accent'.
    My oldest DGD running towards me from her school bus and giving me the biggest hug!
    Looking out over the yard and deciding it doesn't need cutting--today.
    Trying out a pattern I designed and finding that it really does work!
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    learning something new and sharing
    doing something for others makes me happy
    trying a new recipe that turns out to be a keeper

    A rainbow stretching over the end of our property.
    My faith in God.
    A call from my son.
    My husband helping in the house.
    My cat who follows me all day.
    Having a home and enough food and water each day.
    The friends on QB that I've never met.
    Sunny days, bluebirds...the list could go on.

    Bible Studies
    Calls from my children and friends
    shopping for material !!
    finding great quotes - which I love
    Simple pleasures become lifes treasures
    A little praise pays in many ways
    If it weren't for the last minute nothing would get done.
    When your Dreams turn to dust - vaccum
    I'd give up chocolate - but I'm no quitter
    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it
    Of course I don't look busy... I did it right the first time
    I may not be rich and famous but I do have priceless grandchildren.
    I could go on and on but you get the idea.

    Getting a hugs and kisses from my granddaughter - because hugs and kisses go together.
    Hearing "you're the bestest grandma EVER!"
    Sitting on the front porch and seeing all my beautiful flowers in bloom.
    Reading a good book.
    Being pleasantly surprised at the checkout. You know, when you think you've spent lots of money and it's less than what you thought.

    My Husband letting me sleep in on the weekends.
    My Husband cooking me breakfast on the weekends and days off. Bringing silverware and food to me at the table.
    Ever since I was about 6-7 To hear a plane on a sunny day brings me such happiness and a real peaceful feeling. It gives me a feeling that all is okay with the world. This has been since the around 1950 - 1952. Commercial airplanes were not that many.
    Of course I love hearing the birds, watching snow fall, looking at my blooming floers, bushes and trees.
    Starting a new quilt. Too many to put on here.
    Another Phyllis
    This life is the only one you get - enjoy it before you lose it.
