    Little things to be happy about today

    What 5 seemingly insignificant little things made you happy today?
    (besides the obvious big things, family, friends, health, income . . .etc)

    TODAY, this made me happy:

    • sugarfree hot chocolate
      going 55+ on a country road without a slow poke in the way
      talking to someone who shares the same pet peeve
      a parking spot where I thought none would be
      a free cookie

    oooh! i like this thread. let's see

    *Vosages hot chocolate(an early xmas gift from a friend) with a homemade marshmallow(I'm a copycat, but really, what could be happier than cocoa)
    *a homemade christmas gift i've been thinking about making for months turning out even cuter than i expected (yay)
    *planning to make a roast chicken for dinner
    *new little flowers springing up on my cyclamen plant
    *talking to my mom on the phone
    *no-iron shirts all crisp coming out of the dryer

    Oh, is that 6? Anyway, it may be cliche, but noticing the tiny happy things in the day really makes for a better life generally.

    - the shower running exactly the temp i like this morning when i got in

    - someone saying they like my name (Joy) which happens all the time and i'm usually sarcastic and say "my parents liked it" but today it made me feel good

    - my boss giving me an extra 15 min break when a customer yelled at me

    - my rommates dog excited as all get out to see me when i came home

    - the note my rommates left on the mirror in the bathroom "we love you joy!"

    that was a good pick me up thanks!

    1. spent a ton of money this week on toys for me - camera, printer & scanner
    2. lunch I was almost dreading was not so dreadful and maybe even pleasant but more importantly I had steak; thank you “Uncle Bill”
    3. my RAS worked and I can get stuff done that I really need to get done before tomorrow
    4. I did not have to drive at all today
    Ok so I only have four, but it was still a good day.

    1. FUN. I have a cookie swap tonight at my aunt's to look forward to and the cookies are all baked as of last night!

    2. FAMILY/FRIENDS (obvious, but. . .). Thinking of my kids--and I'm anxious to see how their school (daycare) pictures came out. Thinking of going running this weekend if the weather is still good with my friend. Lucky to have an awesome hubby (okay, I'm putting a lot in this one but I'm thankful for it all).

    3. TREATS. May treat myself to a Pumpkin Spice latte (I'm addicted) at Starbucks today.

    4. GOOD HEALTH (I know, obvious). I got a $25 GC to spend at lunch today on clothes from meeting my goals health-wise from a work program with Harvard Health Healthy Returns (a not so obvious bonus to good health, right??). AND I'm as healthy as I've ever been too. Happy that I ride two miles every night on my stationary bike.

    5. TIME OFF TO REGROUP. Tomorrow I'm taking a half day to go shopping as Santa for the kids--what fun! And will visit my aunt in town to get her contractor's name and see the work (we have plans for our house . . . oh, what plans!)

    1. i finished my finals today and began my christmas vacation!

    2. a girl i don't know wants to trade mix cds, so i can make a fun package to mail out tomorrow.

    3. stitch and bitch night at the te cafe, and i'm finishing a really cute scarf.

    4. when i woke up this morning, both of my cats were sleeping right by my face, and they were cuddled together and it was mega cute.

    5. i got the free coffee on my coffee card at the gas station by my apartment. i drink a lot of coffee though, so i get to the free one pretty often. it's still good though.

    Okay, just one since I already did my list: I was at a store today and a dad was pushing his daughter in a cart and when she got fussy he started singing to her. It was soooo cute!! [although probably only because he had a good voice and was singing the 'oh child, things are gonna get easier..oh child things will get brighter' song] It made me smile.
