... a hot cup of coffee while the oddly warm wind blusters around our place.

... the smell of chicken stock on the stove, made from bones saved up in the freezer.

... two really nice skeins of yarn from a friend. I can't wait to knit 'em up!

... polar fleece pajamas found at the thrift store for $1.50.

... piles and piles of CDs from friends in Sweden.

... great series/documentaries on DVD at the library.

... NYT delivered a couple days late via a friend who lets us have them when she's done.

... a clean bathroom sink. Dusted shelves. Swept and vaccuumed floors.

... sturdy canvas shopping bags.

... green and orange ceramic owl from the 60s... 25 cents!

... a freshly-painted-with-freecycled-paint front door -- deep orangey-yellow!

... friends for dinner on Halloween -- BYOB.



How about you?

I know! I was so stoked. I love them, and just as importantly, the husband thinks they are HOT>

You have married well. Not every man feels that way about fleecy pajamas, more's the pity!

library books that I asked the library to buy for ME! (other patrons too, I suppose.....)

budget pay utility bills

canvas shopping bags~no one else uses them here, and often the baggers look at me like I've got a thrid eye. I smile sweetly at them.

clean bathroom

fresh towels

good homemade soup, cookies, bread..food in general

hot tea on a cold morning

well cooked Irish oatmeal with raisens, dried cherries, walnuts, brown sugar and milk.
