Sunny weather, surprising parking spot, hunk of Parmigiano-Reggiano, pet love. Name yours.

I LOVE my baths.
Getting to wear flowly pants and sandals to work b/c it was a dress down day.
Competently beginning to handle a new complicated job at work.
That’s big. Congratulations!
My weekly two hours with my hot, young, scruffy, talented (and very patient) guitar teacher.
Buying a ticket to see Neil Young in concert this summer, at Red Rocks in Colorado.
Sounds great, Noelle, all the way around.
Seeing how my tiny garden is flourishing, and the warm, sunny weather.
My dog pretending she didn’t hear me calling her inside while she was lying in the sun on the porch because she didn’t want me to go to work. The studious effort involved in pretending she couldn’t hear me — even though her eyes would dart over every now and again to see if I was still standing in the doorway calling her inside — was so funny.
That’s amazing, Trixie. I’m not sure my dog could pull that off.
Making someone else laugh. She really needed a good laugh. It made me happy to know that I was up to the task today,
Wearing a cute vintage dress and heels to work today (I’m 6’2″ so I don’t often wear heels) is making me feel happy and pretty.
6’2″ – I’m jealous.
Playing hookey from work, sitting my couch with my huge balcony door open, and watching my cat lazily lay out on the balcony in the sun, (something he’s only allowed to do when I’m home), clearly in full bliss.
