    * I had a really great night's sleep last night.
    * My Texas Brown tarantula molted during the night, and when I looked in on her this morning she looked gorgeous!
    * I found big bags of Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips on sale, two bags for $10. I bought four bags. Let the cookie-making commence!
    * I made a purse out of neckties, and it looks great, is just the right size, and I absolutely love it!
    * I'm going to stop on the way home for potatoes, and I'm looking forward to Spicy Potato Soup for dinner.

    I've already posted but this made me happy today:

    I was sitting at my craft table puzzling over what to make next. My 3 year old son, Harley comes up to me and says "Mom, what's wrong?". I said, "Well, I don't know what to make" Harley thinks for a few minutes and says, "I know Mom, cookies!" Oh how I smiled. Set the crafting aside and went off to bake. It was a good day! -PHH

    3. The wiggling of the baby in my belly (8 months along now; 8 weeks to go!)
    4. Knitting all afternoon on the couch while watching DVDs with commentary.

    1) Stash brand blueberry tea. I had some in Maine, and loved it so much I drank the B&B out of it! Oops. They got more blueberry tea, but it wasn't very good. I've tried several brands, but only liked Stash. I was overjoyed when I found it at a local supermarket, finally.

    2) Good friends who you can vent to, and who are willing to vent to you. It's nice to have a support network and be a part of someone's support network.

    3) Pretzels.

    4) Waking up with the sunlight. It's a joy I really cannot explain, even when it wakes me long before I "should" have gotten up based on how late I was up the night before.

    5) A nice smelling home. I'm pet-sitting right now for a friend, and I fall in love with her appartment every time I walk in. It smells like warm vanilla sugar. Now if I could just replicate that scent without plug in air fresheners!

    6) My friend's cat is so cuddly, and purrs as loudly as a kitten.

    7) The knowledge that the little $5 yoga book I picked up a year ago is no longer so intimidating. I'll be starting it tomorrow morning.

    8) Having my application to my PhD program in. It's a huge weight off my shoulders.

    9) Having already studied more for my upcoming comprehensive exams than I did the last time I took them, and still having about two weeks left. I'm exceptionally nervous, but doing better.

    10) This thread. I've been going through a rough spot recently, and I told myself last night that I would use today to think about the little things so I could post in this thread. It's nice to have forced myself a little more out of the dumps.
